The 27-year-old was a fourth-round pick of Baltimore in 2016 out of Nebraska. He has dealt with several injuries during his short NFL career, including missing two games last season with a neck ailment. Lewis was sidelined the entire 2017 season with an injured shoulder and missed six weeks as a rookie with a sprained ankle.

The move marks the second in five days by new Jets general manager Joe Douglas to upgrade New York’s offensive line. Five-time Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil came out of retirement and signed a one-year deal Saturday after passing his physical.
