After being drafted in the third round in 2017, Michigan cornerback Jourdan Lewis impressed in his rookie campaign.
Lewis signed a four-year, $3.2 million deal after being drafted, and after getting familiar in the league for a year, he decided to ball out for his mama in return for all those years of parenting and washing those sweaty football uniforms.
What a house for the Lewis family.
After deflecting 10 passes, making 48 solo tackles, and intercepting a pass in his 15 appearances and 7 starts, Lewis impressed the Dallas Cowboys, and he will compete for a starting job to enter the 2018 season.
Lewis’ biggest competition for a starting role will be Byron Jones, who has switched back to the cornerback position after a brief stint as a safety. Lewis will receive the help of new defensive backs coach Kris Richard, who helped construct the Legion of Boom in Seattle.
If Lewis can further excel under Richard, he might be able to buy his mom an even bigger house in a few years when he gets his next contract.
