Thad Lewis is expected to be a backup quarterback for the 49ers this season, but he's not expected to play barring an emergency. He last played in 2013 for the Bills. Ignore him in all leagues on Draft Day.
Lewis signed a one-year deal with the 49ers, the Sacramento Bee reports. Lewis - who has spent time with the Bills, Browns, and Eagles - has a 60.8 percent career completion rate and a 5:4 TD:INT ratio. In the likely event that the 49ers trade disgruntled quarterback Colin Kaepernick this offseason, then Lewis would immediately be in the mix for a backup role during training camp, assuming the team doesn't bring in another signal caller.
The Eagles have released third-string quarterback Stephen Morris and signed the more experienced Thad Lewis, per Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Lewis started five games for the Bills in 2013 and one for the Browns in 2012. Cleveland re-signed him this offseason, but let him go after a disappointing preseason performance.
