I think bringing him back would signal the end for either Moore or Copper. Both of those guys are way younger, cheaper, and have a higher ceiling than Lewis does at this point in his career. I just dont see where he fits in and i appreciate all he did but his time has come to move on.

Well my question would be why did Payton keep him in the first place then? He must have seen something. I still say take a look at what he can do. If we trust that Payton will make the right decision then what's the harm?

He has made the right decision. Michael Lewis isn't playing. Let's trust that. I agree.

i think lewis will play this year. hes hasnt played even a preseason game and hes still on this team, they must have something in mind for him. hes better than stecker, moore, and copper. plus lets not forget he can tackle on special teams which we can use help on. i think he will see the field as a WR b/c of his speed. maybe a reverse or fake reverse here and there and some deep routes or slants. i think he can be more dangerous than yall think. he can catch the ball still. jamal jones never plays he can take his or moores spot. stecker and copper are crap on kick returns lewis will be an upgrade and maybe bush and lewis on punt return or just lewis b/c other than that one touchdown which was set up well bush hasnt done anything but lost yards and run east and west.

I believe he was kept around because Payton had to keep 3 young guys and he wasnt sure if they would be able to deliver. Payton wanted to see what he had. I think he keeps the roster as is and lets Lewis go about his business.

Lewis hasn't been very good for the last few years as a return man. He's never been great on offense. Nevertheless, I consider bringing him back for kick coverage. Our kick coverage has blown chunks in every game this year - and when Lewis was playing it seemed he was causing problems for enemy returners all the time.

That's a thin reason, I'll admit.

Lance Moore has been steady returning punts with Bush. Copper is playing more WR with Devery hurt and Lewis is not a receiver in any way. Jones and Copper have both done very well in covering kicks, which is what lewis would be doing if he was activated.
