There wasn't room to bring back all of the Eagles' quarterbacks from last season. On Thursday, Thad Lewis signed a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers.
Lewis joined the Eagles two weeks into the 2015 regular season. He was active for only two games, but did not play in either one.
San Francisco is Lewis' sixth NFL team since joining the league as a rookie free agent of the St. Louis Rams in 2010. The former Duke standout played his most football as a member of the Buffalo Bills in 2013, starting five games and throwing for 1,092 yards and four touchdowns.
Lewis is the second players from the Eagles' roster in 2015 to sign elsewhere since free agency opened joining defensive lineman Cedric Thornton, who inked a four-year deal with Dallas.
The Eagles have one restricted free agent remaining in guard Matt Tobin and four unrestricted free agents in wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu, cornerbacks E.J. Biggers and Nolan Carroll and safety Walter Thurmond.
