Bears Bringing DT Trey Lewis In For A Workout

That's Trey Lewis at the bottom of the picture, bringing down David Garrard in the preseason last year.

Yesterday, we looked at some of the positions that the Bears might be interested in filling between now and training camp, and after not drafting a defensive tackle last weekend, defensive tackle is at the top of that list.

According to Brad Biggs, the Bears are going to make a step towards filling that hole by bringing in defensive tackle Trey Lewis for a workout in the next few days.

Lewis was a sixth-round draft pick of Atlanta in 2007, and was also scouted heavily by the Bears in that draft, so there's a connection on both the Phil Emery side and the Chicago Bears side. He hasn't played since 2010's season opener, however - he was inactive for the remainder of the season and was one of the Falcons' final cuts in 2011, and was not signed that year. He also comes with an injury history, having torn his ACL in 2007, Week 11, and tore it a second time while recovering.

Lewis (PFR Link) has appeared in 18 games for the Falcons since he was drafted, including seven starts. He has an interception in his NFL career, but no sacks among his 25 tackles.

What do you guys think? Does his injury history or missing essentially the last two seasons scare you? Does his age (27 years old) give you any hope? Is there somebody you'd rather they look at?

(Helmet-Tip to Mr. Titanium for bringing awareness to this story in the comments. Thanks, and stay vigilant!)
