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:
Travis Lewis started four games last season for Lions. Will provide the #Vikings with depth at the position. Good on special teams.— Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) March 9, 2016
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!
