Eagles sign QB Thad Lewis, waive QB Stephen Morris

The Philadelphia Eagles signed quarterback Thad Lewis and waived quarterback Stephen Morris, the team announced Monday.

Lewis, 27, will now serve as the team's third-string signal-caller behind Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez.

Prior to joining the Eagles this season, Lewis had most recently played for the Cleveland Browns before being cut on Sept. 5.

In seven career NFL games, Lewis has 1,296 yards, five touchdowns and four interceptions.

Lewis signed with the St. Louis Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2010 out of Duke, where he recorded 10,065 passing yards and 67 touchdowns in four seasons as a Blue Devil. 

Morris, 23, had signed with the Eagles on Sept. 6, the day after the team released Tim Tebow. Morris was inactive for both games this season.

Seeking their first win of the season, the 0–2 Eagles will play the Jets on Sunday in New Jersey.
