Re: Joint Practice with Patriots

Nick is a credible writer so I could believe this (IR) report on Lewis. I'm all for the young guys stepping up but essentially outside of Swann & Dixon, we have no experience at the position. It's too bad we lost Kyle Wilson earlier in mini camp.

Can we talk Peanut Tillman into coming out of retirement & work with the young guns at camp (sarcasm) ?

Expect the Saints FO to bring in a seasoned veteran.

Not sure we'd have the room anyways as we have five (5) maybe six (6) spots available for cornerbacks...

LCB (3) 40 - Delvin Breaux, 27 - Damian Swann, 49 - DeíVante Harris, 37 -


RCB (2) 25 - P.J. Williams, 46 - Ken Crawley

21 - Keenan Lewis would be your sixth (6) with him PUP or IR-Designated

And make no mistake, Crawley and Harris are making this team...

And you STILL have 20 - Brian Dixon who's an excellent gunner and solid spot-starter...

Lot's of praise from Coach Payton however he is essentially a rookie.

Re: Joint Practice with Patriots

I'm not against Lewis going on IR this early. Maybe he comes out next year healthy as a horse and if he can't then it's not much of a decision in letting him go. The one I'm worried about is Swann and his concussions, I'm not counting on him to stay healthy an entire season. 16 games and a possible run to the big dance is alot to expect from him. Maybe we got real lucky with Crawley and Harris, but only game play will tell.

Terrible what happened to Lewis. Was really excited to see he and Breaux on the field together and healthy.

Why on earth should he? One reason they give players guaranteed money is to insure them that they are going to be paid regardless of injury. Its the whole point. Teams use it as a selling point to attract free agents and whatnot. It's not like the Saints didn't know this could happen going into this contract. It's not Greers fault, or Byrds. It's their money and they earned it. It sure as he'll isn't your money.
