Patriots' Lewis a very welcome addition

Coach Bill Belichick is glad to see former Eagles receiver Greg Lewis in a New England uniform.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Bill Belichick found a way to stop receiver Greg Lewis from tormenting his New England Patriots – trade for him.

Lewis made the first touchdown catch of his career while playing for the Philadelphia Eagles against the Patriots in the Super Bowl in 2005. He had two touchdown catches in a 2007 game against the Pats, nearly derailing their unbeaten regular season.

Belichick obtained Lewis from Philadelphia in March for two draft picks.

"Greg has always killed us," Belichick said. "Every time we've played him, he's killed us. We haven't been able to cover him very well so that kind of catches your attention."

On Thursday, Lewis will face his former teammates in a preseason game when the Patriots play the Eagles in Philadelphia.
