I'm told QB Thad Lewis has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the #49ers. Gets an opportunity to continue playing for Chip Kelly.— Rand Getlin (@Rand_Getlin) March 9, 2016

Last year, he was with the Philadelphia Eagles, the former team of new 49ers head coach Chip Kelly. Over his NFL career, he has passed for 1,296 yards, five touchdowns, four interceptions, a completion percentage of 60.8, and a passer rating of 81.4.
Other quarterbacks on the roster include Colin Kaepernick, who is reportedly interested in a trade, Blaine Gabbert and Dylan Thompson.
