Ralph Vacchiano, of the New York Daily News, reports New York Giants TE/OL Jai Lewis has yet to make his "retirement" from football official, and even if he does, he would remain the Giants' property for the length of his contract in case he changes his mind. If he informs them in writing of his intention to retire, he'll be placed on the "reserve/retired" list. If not, he'll end up on the "reserve/did not report" list. In either case, he may have to repay his signing bonus. With nothing in writing yet, the Giants would not confirm Lewis' decision to quit football and not attend training camp.

Clark Judge, of SportsLine.com, reports New York Giants rookie free agent OL/TE Jai Lewis lined up at left tackle at the team's minicamp Monday, May 15. For the moment, that's where he stays, but he could be moved later. There's been talk of Lewis as a long snapper. And there's always the possibility that he goes back to tight end, a position he played in high school. That, by the way, is the last time Lewis played football.

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said OL Jai Lewis is an offensive lineman and a long snapper. When discussing Lewis as a long snapper, Coughlin said, "Once he learns it when he came out here he typically just grabbed the ball and started throwing it between his legs. In the beginning of practice he did a pretty good job. We got him over there and started coaching him and the ball was going all over the place.

Paul Schwarz, of the New York Post, reports recently signed New York Giants OL/TE Jai Lewis (George Mason) will likely spend his first season on the team's practice squad. Right now the Giants view him as a possible offensive tackle, a position he's never played. "He's pretty much grown beyond a tight end," Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi said. "If he wants to lose some weight, he can decide once he gets here. He has the skills, the feet and the hands to be a tight end, but most likely his future is at offensive line."
