Ronnell Lewis apologizes to Martin Mayhew for arrest

Gregory Shamus

After being arrested, Detroit Lions defensive end Ronnell Lewis said he was sorry to the team's general manager.

Given that the Detroit Lions just drafted two defensive ends, Ronnell Lewis needs to have a good rest of the offseason if he wants to make the team. A fourth-round pick in 2012, Lewis played only one snap on defense in his rookie season. He was only active for eight games, primarily playing on special teams. He needs to get a lot better to ensure that he has a spot on the roster come this September.

Lewis also needs to get things in order off the field, as he was arrested in April on three misdemeanor complaints following a bar fight. It was obviously a case of poor judgment on Lewis' part, and he acknowledged as much by immediately apologizing to Lions general manager Martin Mayhew when he got back to Detroit.

According to Tim Twentyman, Mayhew said that something like this can't happen again, meaning Lewis will be released if he gets into any more trouble. The Lions are willing to give Lewis a second chance, but now it's up to him to prove he's deserving of it.
