The Chicago Bears announced Monday they have signed cornerback LeQuan Lewis.

Lewis was an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State in 2011 and spent time with the Tennessee Titans in training camp before being released during final cuts.

Last season, Lewis spent time on the active roster of the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Lewis appeared in three games with the Cowboys and five games with the Buccaneers and made five tackles and an interception in limited action. He also returned five kickoffs for 106 yards.

    Never heard of this guy but very interested to see how he plays..Maybe Emery can hit on some of these low fa signings that Angelo never could. Although Emery whiffed on the Hayden signing

    They had to make up for that position, given the release of Corey Graham to the Ravens. Thanks Chicago! Corey has been really good. Good luck with LeQuan.

    Yep, this is the answer to finally stopping Rodgers.

    great athlete, not so great of a football player. He is very weak in coverage, only way I see him contributing to the bears is in the kick return game, guy does have amazing speed..

    Unlike the CFL corner the Vikes just signed, at least Lewis has SOME NFL experience.

    Not happy with the Bears decisions as usual. Chalk up another miserable long season.

    You must not have watched any Tampa games last year.

    He was the 4th string cornerback in what was almost the worst pass defense in history.

    Living in Tampa, I didn’t exactly shed a tear when we released him.

    Don’t they have the best two CBs in the league already?

    Trying to figure this one out.

    that picture should tell Bears fans everything the need to know about him

    This is just the guy to get the Bears back in the playoff hunt this year.

    Nothing wrong with taking a flyer on a physical talent to see what he’s got.

  14. bahoto34 says: Feb 12, 2013 9:51 AM

    Way to post a picture of him getting burnt.

    Our two starting corners were first and second All-Pro.

    Glad for your first and second All-Pros. I like the Ravens starters as well, but it was great to have Corey step up when our starters got injured. The Ravens are good at finding stars on the somebody elses bench.
