I just hope and pray he succeeds in our system. It seems like a lot of the time when we get excited about free agents signings like this, the players in question just happen to have ineffective seasons with us.

Saints Sign CB Keenan Lewis To Five-Year Deal
By: Brandon Dunn
Updated: March 14, 2013

The New Orleans Saints announced today that they have signed unrestricted free agent CB Keenan Lewis to a five-year contract. The announcement was made by Saints' Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.

"We are excited to be able to add a player of Keenan's ability to our defense," Loomis said. "He was a top free agent target for us and I know that he is very excited to be able to come home to play football."

"I'm very excited to be able to come back to my hometown," Lewis said. "Having grown up here I understand the passion that the fans have for the Saints and I'm blessed to be able to have the chance to play in front of them here in the future. I had a great visit with the Saints and am thankful for the time I spent with the Pittsburgh Steelers and wish them continued success."

Lewis, 6-0, 208 pounds, is a New Orleans native who prepped at O. Perry Walker High School and broke into the NFL as a third round draft pick (96th overall) in 2009 with the Pittsburgh Steelers where he spent the last four seasons. Lewis played his collegiate football at Oregon State, where he was a four-year starter for the Beavers.

Over the course of his four-year professional career, Lewis has played in 45 career regular season games, making 17 starts, and has registered 112 tackles (95 solo), one interception return for nine yards, 34 passes defensed and one forced fumble. On special teams he has chipped in 13 tackles and one forced fumble.

Lewis moved into the starting lineup for the first time in 2012, opening all 16 contests for the Steelers at left cornerback and posted 78 tackles (63 solo), an NFL-leading 28 passes defensed and one forced fumble for the NFL's top-ranked defense both overall and against the pass. He set career-highs in both tackles and passes defensed.

While at Oregon State, Lewis appeared in 50 games with 48 starts and was one of the team's top playmakers. He recorded career totals of 117 tackles (81 solo), seven interception returns, one for a touchdown, 30 passes defensed, one sack and one forced fumble. Lewis was a four-time Academic All-Pac 10 choice and received All-Pac 10 honorable mention as a senior, when he recorded 35 tackles and led the Beavers with four interceptions, one returned for a touchdown, for a unit that ranked second in the conference in total defense and third in pass defense.

Like it. If nothing else, the injuries in our secondary last year proved we need the depth. And at this point anyone could challenge P. Rob for the starter role.

I think Lewis automatically takes the opposite starting spot on the other side of Greer

Well, it's looking like another first round bust for the Saints in Patrick Robinson...

Who was available when the Saints drafted Robinson...

TE Rob Gronkowski, NE
LB Navorro Bowman, SF
LB Daryl Washington, AZ
RB Toby Gerhardt, MIN
FS Nate Allen
LB Sean Lee
LB Pat Angerer

Sean Lee is a stud in the making up here in big D. Amazing how Linebacker U (Penn State) consistently produce top notch linebackers at the NFL level. I would have been happy with taking either Lee or Bowman in that years draft. I'm not overly confident on Patricks status as starting CB for the Saints going forward.

Matt Miller, NFL Draft Scout and Member of the Pro Football Writers of America called the signing of Keenan Lewis on his twitter "The best signing I've seen so far today" and in his next tweet referred to Lewis as an "under-the-radar stud." I sure hope this Miller guy knows what he's talking about and is right. I'm liking this signing, let's hope we continue to make some more good moves.

He starts right away, someone is about to say goodbye to N.O.. Still need a left tackle or drew is toast, Drew could probably afford one with all that money he has.
