After being waived last week by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the team that drafted him in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Myron Lewis has found his new home and he will be joining the Detroit Lions on a one-year contract.
Myron Lewis was drafted by Tampa Bay in 2010 out of Vanderbilt. At Vanderbilt Myron Lewis displayed great promises that he is a must draft athlete. His performance in his Junior and Senior football seasons at Vanderbilt proved to the NFL that he belongs in the league. Lewis won SEC-Honors in both seasons.
Since coming to the league in 2010 Lewis has proved otherwise. He has not performed up to the expectations that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wanted him to be. Lewis was mainly used on Special Teams and was not displayed as a factor on Special Teams hense the team waiving the young defensive back.
Myron Lewis still has a lot to prove at the age of 25. The Lions do not have a high caliber core of defensive backs. This could be the chance to come in and hope for the best at cracking the 53-man roster and a role as a backup in the backfield.
