Pittsburgh agreed to terms on Sunday with free-agent linebacker Jon Bostic on a two-year deal.
Bostic played for the Indianapolis Colts in 2017, registering 97 combined tackles, three passes defensed and one sack. The linebacker has played for three franchises ( Bears, Patriots, Colts) since being drafted by Chicago in the second round of the 2013 draft.
The Lewis signing was the shrewder move between the two because of his dynamic skill set. Tennessee needed elusiveness in the backfield to pair with Derrick Henry, and Lewis brings that and more.

His quickness in open space and talent as a receiver are top-notch and will complement the numerous possession receivers the Titans employ. His health has been an issue in the past, but the 27-year-old has stayed athletic and bouncy despite lower-body injuries.
