Lewis (knee) recently received full medical clearance and shouldn't face any restrictions when NFL training camps open in July, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis inked a one-year deal with the 49ers last March and was expected to compete for a backup gig, but was removed from the mix after suffering a season-ending torn ACL in the team's preseason opener. With his knee now fully healed, the well-traveled Lewis, who has spent time with seven NFL teams, should draw interest from clubs still searching for a No. 2 or 3 quarterback. Lewis has posted a respectable 82.2 quarterback rating in seven career regular-season games, though he hasn't appeared in a contest since 2013.

Lewis suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's preseason opener and will now miss the remainder of this season, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis was forced out during the third quarter of Sunday's game, when he was the second signal-caller used in wake of Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) being sidelined. However, now that his season has already come to a close, rookie Jeff Driskel should see more reps behind Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert in practice.

Lewis signed a one-year deal with the 49ers, the Sacramento Bee reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis - who has spent time with the Bills, Browns, and Eagles - has a 60.8 percent career completion rate and a 5:4 TD:INT ratio. In the likely event that the 49ers trade disgruntled quarterback Colin Kaepernick this offseason, then Lewis would immediately be in the mix for a backup role during training camp, assuming the team doesn't bring in another signal caller.

The Eagles have signed Lewis, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis, who started five games for the Bills in 2013 and one for the Browns in 2012, gives the Eagles a No. 3 QB with more experience than Stephen Morris, who the team released on Monday.

Lewis was released by the Browns on Saturday, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Johnny Manziel (elbow) and Connor Shaw (thumb) both banged up, Lewis looked like a good bet to make the final roster. Shaw was placed on injured reserve, so the Browns presumably expect Manziel to be fine for Week 1.

Lewis threw for 66 yards on 4-of-5 passing, adding two rushes for 11 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's victory over the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis capitalized on injuries to Johnny Manziel (elbow) and Connor Shaw (thumb) that occurred prior to Saturday evening's contest, as he was allowed to play the better part of the second half. After working with the third and fourth-team offenses for most of camp, the 27-year-old put forth an admirable performance, highlighted by a well-placed deep sideline completion to Josh Lenz. Considering Shaw's thumb injury is expected to sideline him long-term, Lewis should be a safe bet to earn a roster spot as the third-string quarterback behind Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel.

Lewis signed with the Browns on Thursday, Daryl Ruiter of 923 The FAN reports.

Heading into training camp, Lewis will likely rank no better than third or fourth on the Browns' quarterback depth chart, as he'll join a collection of signal callers that includes presumptive starter Josh McCown and two second-year players in Johnny Manziel and Connor Shaw. Lewis has bounced around the league the last few seasons as a backup, but does have some familiarity with the Browns' organization. He made a start for Cleveland in Week 17 of the 2012 season, completing 22-of-34 passes for 204 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in a 24-10 loss to the Steelers.

The Texans have waived Lewis, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Lewis, who caught on with the Texans last November after Ryan Mallett was placed on injured reserve, will now look to catch on elsewhere as a depth quarterback.

Head coach Bill O'Brien said he's "pretty close" to making a decision as to whether Lewis or Case Keenum will start this coming Sunday against Baltimore, the Texans' official site reports.

However, the coach is not ready to divulge which one will start. "I'm going to keep that one close to the vest," O'Brien said Wednesday. O'Brien added that both Lewis and Keenum will prepare to start "right up until game time," suggesting the identity of his start will not be revealed until Sunday.

Lewis has not been confirmed as the backup quarterback yet, the Houston Chronicle reports. The Duke product was signed earlier this week after Ryan Mallett was placed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle.

Head coach Bill O'Brien, who was an offensive coordinator at Duke when Lewis was there, wants to see how much of the system the quarterback grasps in his first practice week before declaring him the top backup. That means for now, Lewis or Tom Savage will be the fill-in should Ryan Fitzpatrick be unable to finish Sunday's game against the Titans.
