Lance Lewis (born November 1, 1988) is an American football wide receiver[1] for the Washington Redskins of the National Football League (NFL). He was signed by the Redskins as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and, following a successful tryout, returned to the team in 2013. He played college football for East Carolina University.

Professional career[edit]

Washington Redskins[edit]

Lewis was signed by the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent on April 29, 2012.[2] In early August, he suffered a groin injury that caused him to be inactive for the 2012 preseason.[3][4] He was waived with an injury settlement on August 27.[5]

Lewis returned to the Redskins on May 14, 2013 following a successful tryout during the team's rookie mini-camp in early May.[6][7] The Redskins waived him on August 31, 2013 for final roster cuts before the start of 2013 season,[8] he was signed to the team's practice squad the next day.[9] Lewis was signed to the active roster on November 21, 2013 after the team placed Leonard Hankerson to injured reserve.[10]
