The Vikings bolster their LB corps and special teams while getting a player from a division rival

Not the most flattering picture, but in Lewis' defense, this has happened to a lot of linebackers.

Another free agent domino falls for the Minnesota Vikings, as it appears they have signed LB Travis Lewis from the Detroit Lions:

Thanks to our friends over at Pride of Detroit, we've got a good scouting report on him right here.

And that scouting report kind of falls in line with the role he's projected to have with the Vikings:

With the Lewis signing, that makes two new faces for the Vikings, and Lewis will provide a very good LB corps with more depth, and should be able to contribute right away on special teams. It's not the flashiest of moves, but with injuries to both Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks last year, getting Audie Cole back and signing a player like Lewis gives the Vikings much needed depth at the linebacker position.

So, welcome to Minnesota, Travis Lewis!
