I remember when George Seifert dumped Steve Beuerlein and went after Jeff Lewis with the intent of making him the starter. I was in disbelief for probably a week.

If Lewis ever wound up playing a single snap in a game that counted for us, I've forgotten it.


He played some towards the end of the 2000 season.

Pretty sad. RIP Jeff.

That guy had big time arm strength just couldn't ever put it all together.

Didn't he come to us from Denver? Was he a Dan Reeves draftee?

The last I had heard of him, some guy here had posted that he went to a Hyundai dealership in Florida IIRC, and Lewis was a salesman there. From what I remember, he said Lewis was very personable and didn't seem embarrassed or bitter about how his career went at all. I got the impression that he was happy where he was...

Definitely sad news. RIP Jeff.

Police say natural causes. Lewis has apparently been in poor health for a while.

I'm sure someone in the media will bring up the "ex-NFL" angle, but Lewis hardly ever played.
