The Saints are bring back Tommylee Lewis. They have signed him to a reserve/futures deal which means he will get a chance to compete in camp. The Saints originally signed Lewis in 2016 as an UDFA. He made the final 53 and was on the roster for the NFCCG on 1-20-19, when you know what happened. That was his final game as a Saint.

Lewis was signed by the Lions 3-19-19 but was released during final cuts on 8-30-19. In October of 2019 Tommylee Lewis was selected in the fifth round of the 2020 XFL draft by the Dallas Renegades.

During his career he has 20 receptions for 252 yards and two touchdowns. He also returned 24 kickoffs for 528 yards with a long of 39. Returned 36 punts for 339 yards and a long of 59. No touchdowns. He has fumbled 4 times losing 2 of them.

He will perhaps push some of our other receivers who have been disappointing to say the least, but it’s a long shot for him to make the final roster. WR/KR Deonte Harris almost assuredly has his spot locked down. Injuries do happen and the Saints are practicing due diligence.
