The Carolina Panthers officially waived WR Tommylee Lewis with an injury designation on Wednesday.
Should Lewis clear waivers on Thursday, he would revert to the team’s injured reserve list.
Lewis, 27, wound up signing on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Northern Illinois back in 2016. He was in the final year of his three-year, $1.62 million contract and made a base salary of $630,000 for the 2018 season.
Lewis was not tendered by the Saints as a restricted free agent and he later agreed to a contract with the Lions in March. He was later placed on the PUP list and waived.
Lewis signed a futures deal with the Saints this past January but was cut last month. He signed on with the Panthers a few weeks later.
In 2018, Lewis appeared in seven games for the Saints and caught three passes for 60 yards receiving and one touchdown. He also rushed twice for 10 yards and totaled 69 kick return yards.
