Lions Sign CB Brandon McGee, Waive CB Keith Lewis

The Detroit Lions announced Tuesday that they’ve signed CB Brandon McGee to a contract and placed CB Keith Lewis on waivers.

McGee, 25, was taken by the Rams in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL draft. He was unfortunately among the team’s roster cuts last year, but later returned to the Rams’ practice squad.

Unfortunately, the Rams cut McGee loose midseason and later signed to to the Giants’ practice squad before the Cowboys gave him a one-year, future/reserve contract in January.

McGee was placed on I.R. close a few months ago after he cleared waivers. The Cowboys later waived him with an injury settlement.

In 2015, McGee was active for just a single game and did not record a statistic.

Lewis, 27, originally signed on with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Virginia-Lynchburg back in 2014. He lasted just a few months in Tampa Bay before signing a future/reserve contract after the season.

The Chiefs elected to sign him to a future/reserve contract back in January, but cut him loose not too long ago. The Lions later signed him to a contract in June.

Lewis has yet to appear in an NFL game.
