New York Giants Waive Melvin Lewis


Former Kentucky Defensive Tackle Melvin Lewis was waived by the New York Giants today.

After being picked up by the Giants in the offseason as an undrafted free agent, Lewis participated in all spring activities in New York. He faced an uphill battle all summer with a crowd at the defensive tackle position. The Giants return one DT starter in Jonathan Hankins and spent top-dollar on one of the league’s leading run stoppers, Damon Harrison, this offseason.

Hopefully Lewis can find a spot on a 53-man roster outside of the Big Apple. If not, look for the ex-Cat to impress on a practice squad.

    How come UofL has so many NFL players compared to UK. I though Coach Stoops was a great recruiter and defensive mind? Please don’t let it be true that Coach Petrino takes 3 star recruits from Alabama, Georgia, and Florida and turns them into monsters, but Coach Stoops can’t get 4 and 5 star guys to be productive college players.
