  • LB Lewis visited with Broncos

    The Broncos, who are in need of a strong-side linebacker, brought in free agent D.D. Lewis for a predraft visit to their Dove Valley complex Wednesday.
    Lewis, who will be entering his fifth NFL season, spent the past four seasons in Seattle after the Seahawks signed him as an undrafted rookie in 2002. Lewis was a starter in 2005 and 2006 but missed 10 games last season because of a right big toe injury that didn't heal.

    He was injured in October and the Seahawks put him on injured reserve in December.

    Lewis, a regular on the Seahawks' special teams, missed four games in 2005 because of injuries - three because of a knee injury, one because of a foot.

    He missed all the 2004 season because of shoulder surgery.

          Not the same thing as Courtney Brown. Brown's problems derived from the same injury. According to the story, Lewis has had several different injuries and the only one that seems to be a concern now is the toe injury. Considering how late it is in FA Shanahan can't be too picky about who he gets. If we sign Lewis before the draft, that could be an indication that Shanahan intends to go after a DE instead of a LB in the first round. Whatever the case is, signing this guy really gives the Broncos more options in the draft. He could still try to move up for Willis, although I don't think a LB is worth the picks we would have to sacrifice to get him, but signing Lewis takes some of the pressure off to draft a LB in the first round.

          From the Denver Post:

          Linebacker to sign

          Seattle free-agent linebacker D.D. Lewis visited the Broncos on Wednesday and is expected to sign a one-year contract with the team today, an NFL source confirmed. The five-year veteran played just five games last season because of injuries.
