Free agent QB Thad Lewis has been medically cleared following last preseason's torn ACL.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Lewis "will have a market." We'll see. The 29-year-old has already been on eight different teams in his short career and has become little more than a camp arm/No. 3 quarterback. May 31 - 8:36 AM

49ers QB Thad Lewis tore his ACL in Sunday night's preseason opener.

One of the drawbacks of Chip Kelly's offense is that it puts quarterbacks at increased injury risk, and we saw that in San Francisco's exhibition opener. Lewis ran ahead of rookie Jeff Driskel on Sunday night. Driskel will move up a notch on the depth chart behind Blaine Gabbert and injured Colin Kaepernick.

49ers signed QB Thad Lewis, formerly of the Eagles, to a one-year contract.

Lewis spent last season holding a clipboard for Sam Bradford in Philadelphia. He'll slide in as San Francisco's No. 3 quarterback behind Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick. Lewis hasn't seen an NFL snap since 2013 when he started six games for Buffalo.

Eagles declared QB Thad Lewis, WR Jonathan Krause, CB Denzel Rice, LB Steven Means, OL Tanner Hawkinson, DE Brandon Bair, and OL Barrett Jones inactive for Week 15 against the Cardinals.

The Eagles are fully healthy entering Sunday night. Jordan Matthews (back) is active and will match up with Tyrann Mathieu in the slot.

Eagles signed QB Thad Lewis and waived QB Stephen Morris.

Lewis gives the Eagles a bit more experience than Morris as their third-string and scout-team quarterback. Morris may resurface on the practice squad.

Browns released QB Thad Lewis.

Lewis posted a brutal 56.8 passer rating during the preseason and was always a long shot to make the team. The Browns will move forward with Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel at quarterback. The 27-year-old Lewis hasn't played in the regular season since 2013.

Browns signed QB Thad Lewis to a one-year contract.

27-year-old Lewis flashed signs of being a capable backup in 2013 with Buffalo before bottoming out with the Bills last year, and eventually getting cut. He wound up on the Texans' roster, but was again cut last week. Lewis has very little to offer the Browns, who remain quarterback starved even after making this move and paying Josh McCown a shocking $14 million over three years.

Texans released QB Thad Lewis.

They didn't deem him worthy of a $745,000 base salary.
Mon, Mar 9, 2015 05:29:00 PM

Bill O'Brien is declining to announce his Week 16 starter at quarterback.

It will either be Case Keenum or Thad Lewis. "I'm going to keep that one close to the vest," O'Brien said Wednesday. "Both these guys, Case and Thad, are out there working hard. Right up until game time, that's going to be the way it is." It sounds like he's going to try to keep the Ravens in the dark until Sunday morning. All Texans are hands off in fantasy Super Bowls.

Texans signed QB Thad Lewis.

With Ryan Mallett (pectoral) done for the season, Lewis will be the Texans' No. 3 quarterback. He may actually be active on game days if the Texans deem fourth-round rookie Tom Savage not ready for NFL action. Lewis was brutal in the preseason for the Bills after entering summer the favorite for No. 2 duties.
Mon, Nov 24, 2014 06:44:00 PM

Free agent QB Thad Lewis worked out for the Rams on Monday.

The Rams are already three deep at quarterback, so they could be considering a roster move. It's unlikely, however. A 2010 undrafted free agent, Lewis began his career in St. Louis, but never appeared in a game for the Rams. He was released by the Bills in August following a shaky preseason.
Mon, Sep 15, 2014 05:38:00 PM

Bills released QB Thad Lewis.

Lewis was the heavy favorite for No. 2 duties heading into spring. But he ended up completing 17-of-33 passes for 168 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions, while taking three sacks this preseason. His passer rating was a pitiful 41.0. The Bills signed QB Jordan Palmer on Monday to compete with Jeff Tuel for the backup job. Lewis had a bad summer after making five 2013 starts.
Tue, Aug 26, 2014 09:05:00 AM

Bills backup QB Thad Lewis is believed to be on the roster bubble.

Lewis was a lock for the 53-man roster a month ago, but has struggled this preseason. He's completed just 17-of-33 passes for 168 yards and two interceptions. The Bills were said to be "very high" on Lewis as their backup to E.J. Manuel in the spring. Jeff Tuel has outperformed Lewis this summer.
Sun, Aug 17, 2014 11:27:00 AM

Thad Lewis was the Bills' No. 2 quarterback in Friday night's preseason game.

Lewis played ahead of Jeff Tuel after working with the third-team in Buffalo's preseason opener. He completed 6-of-11 passes for 63 yards and didn't have any turnovers. The camp reports on Lewis have been bad, but he remains the favorite to back up E.J. Manuel. Tuel threw for 24 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in Friday's win. A 2013 UDFA, Tuel appeared in two games last year and has practice squad eligibility.
Sat, Aug 9, 2014 12:25:00 AM

Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel are competing for the Bills' No. 2 quarterback job.

With E.J. Manuel coming off three knee surgeries and proving to be rather injury-prone as a rookie, it's a battle worth monitoring from afar. Lewis entered the spring as the heavy favorite, but Tuel impressed during OTAs and "earned himself some more reps." The two have been splitting second-team work the first couple days of training camp. Lewis was far better than UDFA Tuel in 2013.
