The Miami Dolphins have signed former BCU linebacker, Ryan Lewis, to a rookie free agent deal according to the Palm Beach Post.

Lewis is a two time All-MEAC defensive performer and was selected as the conference’s Preseason Defensive Player of the Year in 2011.  But don’t expect to see the 6-1, 245 pound Pompano Beach native making tackles, taking on offensive linemen,  or guarding tight ends if he’s on Miami’s roster next year.  The Dolphins are expected to convert Lewis to fullback.

Lewis is the third BCU player to ink a free agent deal this week (Ryan Davis, DE, Jacksonville Jaguars; and Jean Fanor, S, Kansas City Chiefs).

Best of luck to Ryan Lewis in all of his future endeavors.
