METAIRIE, La. -- Keenan Lewis firmly established himself as one of the NFL's top young cornerbacks last year, helping the New Orleans Saints rank as the league's No. 2 pass defense in the regular season, then silencing dynamic Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson in the playoffs.

But Lewis is hardly resting on his laurels, because he knows the competition isn't going to get any easier anytime soon.

Lewis said he started focusing on improving his leg strength and his burst from the day after New Orleans' season-ending playoff loss at Seattle last year.

"It's just something I think I lacked last year, especially when you're going against the guys I'll be facing this year, the Megatrons (Calvin Johnson), A.J. Green, Anquan [Boldin] again, Dez [Bryant] again, those bigger guys," Lewis said. "You're gonna need that power and that leg drive. That's something I've been working on a lot.

"Driving to the ball, putting a real 'pop' -- what I call it -- on those running backs, coming from the hips and exploding. So that was my biggest key, the day after the Seattle game, to come in and get my legs ready."

The 6-foot-1, 208-pound Lewis also said he has another incentive to try and improve that leg strength.

"You see my legs, they're very small," Lewis said. "So they talk about 'em a lot."

LOL!!! It's true, he does have some chicken legs. Almost Aaron Brooks-esque.

Byrd-Vaccaro-Lewis will establish themselves as the best DB trio in the league once Sherman tears his ACL from the madden curse.
