#1 receiver does not mean fastest receiver ie. Marques Colston

Re: CB Keenan Lewis a Saint (page 6 update)

From WalterFootball.com:

Saints sign CB Keenan Lewis (5 years, $26M; $11M guaranteed): A Grade
Keenan Lewis was the second-best cornerback still available in free agency. He's better than both Sean Smith and Cary Williams, yet he's slated to make less per year than both of them. This is not because teams didn't view Lewis as an inferior cornerback; he simply took a discount to play with the Saints. According to the Chicago Sun-Times' Sean Jensen, another team offered Lewis a much larger contract.

This is obviously an awesome acquisition for the Saints. They're filling their huge corner need with a very talented player at a very reasonable price.

Awesome value. I love the part where he took a discount to be here. You got to love the players that genuinely wants to be here.

Welcome home. Good young rising player our secondary just got better. I like the fact that this is a long term fix. And not a player on the downside of his career. YEEAAAH

I'm freaking thrilled!! He's going to make an instant impact and his 2013 salary is so small that we still have plenty of cap space available!

And if by chance it isn't a long term fix, there isn't much risk in the way the deal is constructed. Added bonus.

The flat market has done us well. Hopefully we can pouch another one soon. Hey Conner Barwin, I'm pointing at you!

Re: CB Keenan Lewis a Saint (page 6 update)

Can't go wrong with the DB that led the league in pass breakups to be fair
He's a big, tall, physical corner and thats exactly what we needed

Reportedly Rob Ryan is still trying to get asomugha to come here after signing keenan lewis - NFL.com

I'm liking our deal more and more.
