    MACOMB, IL -- The St. Louis Rams have agreed to terms on a five-year contract with DT Damione Lewis, the team announced today.

Starting in nine games last year, he registered 39 tackles, 3.0 sacks, three passes defensed and two forced fumbles.

          D. Lewis has 8 tackles and Zero Sacks.

          Andy McCollum Center - has 3 tackles - plays offense.

          This guy just doesn't produce .. he has a FAT SALARY and he plays invisible. He just doesn't produce. The Scams over Damione move on in January.

          The Ravens are still shopping around middle linebacker Ray Lewis as trade bait, possibly to the Denver Broncos for one of their two offensive tackles, Matt Lepsis or George Foster.

          Player Profile: Thaddeus Lewis
          by sosa39rams
          Duke football coach David Cutcliffe is widely regarded as one of the finest quarterback tutors in the country. He’s the man who once provided guidance to future Hall of Fame signal caller Peyton Manning.

          Cutcliffe passed those same lessons on to his latest pupil, Rams rookie Thaddeus Lewis. In his four-year career with the Blue Devils, Lewis went on to set or tie every major passing record in school history.

          And for all of his success, Lewis was trained in a pro style offense more along the lines of the NFL than the spread offenses that run rampant in college football these days.

          In other words, when Lewis signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent on April 26, he was about as NFL ready as a quarterback can be.

          “It helped me a whole lot,” Lewis said. “I wasn’t fazed at all coming out to these practices because he makes his practices up tempo and fast. The transition was great so that part wasn’t hard at all. It’s just learning the language. The language is different. You have to forget everything you learned in college. Pretty much, the route concepts and running plays are the same. The defenses never change. They add a few things to it but it’s pretty much the same.”

          Make no mistake, for as much preparation as Lewis was able to have for his move to the game’s highest level, there’s only so much you can do. That’s why Lewis came to St. Louis with his eyes and ears wide open and his head on a swivel.

          “It’s demanding more of you on this level than in college,” Lewis said. “As a quarterback, there are a lot of things you need to know as a rookie that you have to learn on the fly. You have to learn pretty quick in college but the transition has been pretty smooth. The coaches have done a great job with us but putting time in off the field also helps.”

          Considering his pedigree and his performance in college, it might come as a surprise that Lewis went undrafted last April.

          While Duke is known for its prowess on the basketball court, Cutcliffe has restored some respectability to the program with the help of Lewis as the cornerstone quarterback.

          From the moment he arrived in Durham as a freshman out of Hialeah Miami Lakes High in Florida, Lewis made his presence felt. He started the final 11 weeks of his true freshman season.

          By the time his four years were complete, Lewis had left a lasting impression on Duke football fans.

          All told, Lewis established or matched 54 schools records including career completions (877), passing yards (10,065) and passing touchdowns (67) while playing in 47 games. A two-time second team All-ACC selection, Lewis was a finalist for the Davey O’Brien Award as a senior when he threw for 3,330 yards and 20 touchdowns. His 10,065 passing yards rank as the second-highest career total in ACC history.

          With numbers like those and the training Lewis had...

          damione lewis signs with carolina
          by general counsel
          two year deal at between 3 and 4 million per year. He gets an additional 300k for every shot to the opponents groin, unless he is flagged for doing so, in which case he only gets an extra 50k per shot. With these incentives, he can make about 8 million per year given his uppercut.

          This is the single biggest overpay i have ever seen.
