He was signed to its practice squad on Dec. 20, 2022, and made its active roster on Jan. 4, 2023.
Lewis was with the Los Angeles Rams before going to Chicago. He was taken in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Rams and captured a Super Bowl Championship in the 2021 season. Lewis would later get cut from the team.
He came to the University of Alabama as a four-star in its 2016 recruiting class. Injuries prevented him from reaching his potential; however, Lewis showed flashes of how dominant he could be. He recorded a critical sack of Jake Fromm (Georgia’s quarterback) in the national title matchup. Lewis terrorized quarterbacks in 2019 for six sacks and 16 hurries.
He earned two Southeastern Conference Championships (2016, 2018) with the Tide.
