Default Huge TE coming to visit.....

John O'Connor, of the Times-Dispatch, reports the Pittsburgh Steelers have invited NCAA basketball C Jai Lewis, of George Mason, to visit with them after the NCAA basketball tournament is over. There may also be other NFL teams that want to take a first-hand look at the 6-7 275-pounder. Lewis last played football as a tight end and defensive end at Aberdeen (Md.) High School. But his size and athleticism intrigues NFL scouts, who see some TE Antonio Gates (Chargers) in Lewis. A Steelers scout watched Lewis play in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament earlier this month at the Richmond Coliseum and left impressed by Lewis' dimensions, coordination and mobility. "I'd love to play football, and the NFL is always trying to find athletes," said Lewis.

I know Chevy Troutman wasn't 6'7" and 275 pounds, but I'm skeptical when it comes to looking at basketball players who haven't played football since high school. I recall the Redskins doing the same with Chevy and that lasted all but ten minutes.

It doesn't hurt, but I don't see this guy making the team.

Going by the title, I guess Lewis is being brought in as a possible TE. If you were asking about Chevy Troutman, the Redskins brought him in as a possible TE.

Doesn't sound like he's even part of the NFL draft, although I could be wrong about that.

Nah, He is either a late round flier or an undrafted signing.

With Jerame up in the air right now, that would leave us with Heath and Kranchick, right? So you'd think they'll look for 3rd TE at some point.

Troutman wasn't even close to 275, he MIGHT have been 240 ... thats a huge difference in a TE.
