Jets Trade For Ravens' Lewis To Buoy Offensive Line


Alex Lewis may have announced yesterday morning that he was being released by the Ravens—but he actually never even made it to the waiver wire.

Because just hours later he was scooped up by the New York Jets, who acquired the guard from Baltimore for a 2020 conditional seventh-round pick yesterday.

Lewis, a 2016 fourth-round pick by the Ravens, who started 10 games last season, was expected to compete at left guard. He has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career (missing a total of 28 games over three seasons) and began training camp on the physically unable to perform list while recovering from shoulder surgery.

Now he becomes the second offensive-lineman taken by the Jets in the past four days. The Jets also lured former Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil out of retirement.

The Jets seem to be one of the most improved teams this year.
