Goodbye Greg Lewis

In an unprecedented move, the Philadelphia Eagles traded wide reciever Greg Lewis to the New England Patriots for a 2009 fifth round pick. Thank you, thank you, thank you. There was no reason for G.Lew to make this roster for the past two years. He was a pedestrian free agent rookie coming out of Illinois and he never became more than that during his tenure in Philly. I never saw him as a go to guy, nor did he have blazing speed, but for some unknown reason Andy Reid would send him deep only to have McNabb overthrow him.
At the beginning of the 2007 season, Coach Andy named him the punt returner despite the fact that Lewis never returned a punt. The first game against the showed as he botched it up helping the Eagles lose the game. It wasn't entirely Lew's fault since it was the coach's bad decision to put him in there in the first place. In any case, I bid a fond farwell to one of the last guys on the depth chart and I wish him all the best in New England.

Any bets that Tom Brady will make him look useful?
