"EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants said Monday they have agreed to terms with rookie free agent Jai Lewis, who has not played organized football since high school but who played forward on the George Mason University basketball team that reached the Final Four this spring.

Lewis, who is listed at 6-foot-7, 275 pounds, is projected by NFL scouts as a defensive lineman or tight end. He played defensive tackle, tight end and fullback in high school. At George Mason, he helped the Patriots reach the Final Four, where they lost 73-58 to Florida.

Lewis scored 20 points in George Mason's 86-84 upset win over Connecticut in the regional final.

The Giants did not immediately disclose the terms of the deal. The team planned to hold a teleconference later in the day."
