In a move made trying to bolster their defensive backfield, the Detroit Lions have signed former Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Myron Lewis. Lewis is a former third-round selection and was released by the Buccaneers last week. Detroit does have secondary issues but this move should do little to rectify their issues. The move was first reported by PFT.com on Twitter.
During his tenure with the Buccaneers, Lewis struggled to stay on the field due to injuries. He never lived up to his potential while in Tampa. He came to the Buccaneers with high expectations but never lived up to the billing. Tampa Bay spent much of the offseason trying to fix their own secondary issues by trading for Jets CB Darrelle Revis and drafting CB Jonthan Banks and signing free agent safety Dashon Goldson.
During his career, Lewis appeared in 29 games, starting only once. He has 17 career tackles and four pass deflections. He played his college ball at Vanderbilt where he earned all-SEC second team honors. After waiving Lewis, the Buccaneers signed former Rutgers cornerback Mason Robinson.
