Ex-Seahawks LB Lewis to visit Titans

The Tennessee Titans will host free agent linebacker D.D. Lewis of the Seattle Seahawks on Friday at Baptist Sports Park.

Lewis, an unrestricted free agent, is a player who is familiar to new general manager Mike Reinfeldt, who was previously vice president of football administration for the Seahawks before joining the Titans.

Lewis played at the University of Texas and spent five seasons with the Seahawks, including 2004 where he missed the whole year with a shoulder injury.

Lewis, 28, has played both outside linebacker and inside linebacker during his NFL career.

If he signs with the Titans, he would be another player expected to address depth and special teams issues.

�He would probably be depth at outside linebacker and help on teams,� Reinfeldt said. �In the NFL, if you�re not a starter, it is imperative that you do play special teams. We�re looking for dual purpose people who can be real valuable backups and also be productive on special teams.�

Lewis was a starter for the Seahawks in the team�s Super Bowl season of 2005, but played in just five games last year and wound up on injured reserve with a toe injury.
