He was a second-round pick at outside linebacker by the Buccaneers in 1977 and played for them until 1981, including an appearance in the 1980 Pro Bowl.

Lewis was among the defensive stars on the 1979 team that reached the NFC title game, capping the franchise's "worst to first" transformation. The Bucs won 10 games that year after having won just seven in the franchise's previous three seasons.

Lewis also played for the San Diego Chargers in 1982 and Los Angeles Rams in 1983.

After leaving the NFL, Lewis began a long prep coaching career. He coached at Tampa Catholic High from 1986 to 1990, compiling a 33-19 record and winning a district title. He still served on the Crusaders staff at his death, working mostly from a golf cart in recent years.
