After six years in Philadelphia, Lewis was acquired by New England on March 5 for a draft pick. He expects to compete not only for playing time at receiver behind starters Randy Moss and Wes Welker, but also on special teams, where he fulfilled a number of roles over the years for the Eagles including the ``gunner'' on punt coverage.
Lewis said on a conference call that Brady - who is rehabbing from knee surgery - came up to him on Monday and welcomed him to the team.
Lewis caught a touchdown pass against the Patriots in the Super Bowl in 2005 and caught a career-high 48 passes the following season. But his playing time diminished the past two seasons, and he caught 19 passes for 247 yards in the 2008 season.
