Thaddeus Lewis traded from Detroit Lions to Buffalo Bills

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

It's fairly safe to assume that the additions of Lewis and Matt Leinart mean that the Bills are nervous about the injury status of EJ Manuel and Kevin Kolb.

Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley is having himself a busy Sunday: not only has the team signed veteran quarterback Matt Leinart, but they've also acquired quarterback Thaddeus Lewis in a trade with the Detroit Lions. That per Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com; Ian Rapoport of NFL.com confirms that the Bills sent linebacker Chris White to the Lions in exchange.

Lewis, 25, spent the 2012 season as a member of the Cleveland Browns, where he made one start (in Week 17 against Pittsburgh). He'd been waived this past spring with a new coaching staff in Cleveland, and the Lions picked him up on waivers, where he was buried on the depth chart. The former undrafted free agent out of Duke will serve the same purpose as Leinart: keep the couch warm behind Jeff Tuel until the team has more clarity on the status of EJ Manuel and, especially, Kevin Kolb.
