The Arizona Cardinals announced Monday that the team has agreed to terms on a three-year contract with Virginia Tech defensive tackle Jonathan Lewis, a sixth-round (177th overall) selection in the 2006 NFL Draft.

In accordance with club policy, terms were not disclosed.

Lewis (6-foot-1, 312 pounds) finished his collegiate career by starting in 42 of the 53 games that he appeared, collecting 203 tackles (100 solo) with 15.5 sacks, 44 quarterback pressures, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and one interception during his four seasons at Virginia Tech.

Lewis becomes the third member of Arizona’s 2006 draft class to be under contract, joining Louisville outside linebacker Brandon Johnson (fifth round, 142nd overall) and BYU wide receiver Todd Watkins (seventh round, 218th overall).
