Damione Fighting for a Roster Spot?

PANTHERS: The Panthers just signed DT Damione Lewis to a new contract last offseason, but the team may address his deal again before free agency begins in late February, we hear. Lewis is due a $2.5 million roster bonus and has a cap figure $6.8 million for 2009. He had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff, which is expected to keep him out until at least July, after having injured it in a Dec. 21 loss to the Giants. The Panthers want to make upgrades at defensive tackle, and Lewis should expect some competition in training camp, if he’s healthy and still with the team.
