Lewis’ new contract will pay him a base salary of $2 million next season with an opportunity to earn up to $4 million in incentives, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The 33-year-old is earning $3.25 million this season, which was the final year of the three-year, $8 million deal he signed with Texas prior to the 2010 season.
