Giants | Lewis not officially retired

Sun, 16 Jul 2006 06:00:42 -0700

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.

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.

Giants | Lewis looks like a lineman

Tue, 02 May 2006 13:21:28 -0700

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."

NFL | More about J. Lewis workout

Thu, 20 Apr 2006 21:00:13 -0700

The Washington Post reports George Mason basketball player Jai Lewis finished his 20-yard shuttle drill in approximately 4.6 seconds during his workout for NFL scouts Thursday, April 20. Lewis was tested in the vertical jump, reaching about 28 inches, and in the standing broad jump, traveling about 8 feet 8 inches. He has not yet started weight training and did not do the bench press, a standard pre-draft exercise. Speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of player assessments, several scouts said Lewis has ample room for improvement and will need to convince NFL teams that he hungers for the aggression and violence of professional football. Still, they said his athleticism and explosiveness were impressive, particularly after he left the track surface for the football turf. Lewis went through drills for defensive ends, tight ends and offensive linemen, but scouts said his attributes and 6-foot-5, 292-pound frame likely were best suited for the offensive line.

NFL | J. Lewis getting ready for the NFL Draft

Thu, 13 Apr 2006 21:15:35 -0700

The Washington Post reports George Mason basketball C Jai Lewis is preparing for the NFL Draft. He has hired Jeff Jankovich of Capital Football Associates to be his agent. Now he will quickly begin working with a personal trainer, concentrating on the sort of football-specific drills that NFL scouts would like to see: a 20-yard shuttle run out of a football stance to display acceleration and flexibility, and a three-cone drill to demonstrate the ability to change directions at full speed while staying low to the ground. Within the next two weeks, Lewis plans to hold a one-man combine for those scouts, either on George Mason's campus or at a local gym, during which he will perform basic speed and strength tests. Roughly 10 NFL teams have contacted Lewis directly. NFL personnel have told him he projects as either a defensive lineman or tight end. "I don't think he's a guy who would be drafted, but I'm sure someone would sign him and give him a look in camp to try to make the roster if he decides he wants to play," one NFL general manager said this week.

Lewis has not given up on playing professional basketball yet. Lewis is in Portsmouth, Va., to participate in the Portsmouth Invitational, a four-day showcase for NBA hopefuls.

Steelers | Team to take a look at J. Lewis

Sat, 18 Mar 2006 23:17:33 -0800

John O'Connor, of the Times-Dispatch, reports the Pittsburgh Steelers have invited NCAA basketball C Jai Lewis, of George Mason, to visit with them after the NCAA basketball tournament is over. There may also be other NFL teams that want to take a first-hand look at the 6-7 275-pounder. Lewis last played football as a tight end and defensive end at Aberdeen (Md.) High School. But his size and athleticism intrigues NFL scouts, who see some TE Antonio Gates (Chargers) in Lewis. A Steelers scout watched Lewis play in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament earlier this month at the Richmond Coliseum and left impressed by Lewis' dimensions, coordination and mobility. "I'd love to play football, and the NFL is always trying to find athletes," said Lewis.
