Spotrac.com has a popup on his $7.2M dead cap that says "2106 Post June 1: $3,600,000". Not sure what that means.

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

If you designate him a post June cut thats what you pay this year. It just pushes the rest till next year. Pushing cap into future years,that'll be it. Same story different year

I'm thinking the hip was just too much of a concern to wait on. We'll see....

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

Explains the Cortland Finnegan deal. Keeps that veteran presence in the locker room cheap. That report seems to suggests a disconnect between Lewis and Allen.


Good luck to him,well as long as he digns outside the NFC South

Time for Williams to step up

Lewis said he felt like he never meshed with DC Dennis Allen and that he was closer with former DC Rob Ryan. But said he has utmost respect for Sean Payton and his hometown organization.
Interesting but not too surprising.

Circle back to an earlier post from Danno. PJ has clearly been our #2 corner so far in camp. KL simply hasn't been 100% in 2+ seasons. If you listen at some of the early sound bytes from DeVante, PJ, Pruitt & Crawley in camp, they speak highly of Breaux as a leader... KL not so much.

It was a good ride & I enjoyed watching KL play but I think it was time for them to move on. Most of us here didn't really expect him to play much in 2016 any way.

I wish Keenan well though going forward.

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

Giving in to that guaranteed coin feels mighty stupid right now.

Personally I wish him the best.

Professionally - thanks for nothing post ultimatum.

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

Dont think you can blame him for being injured. He tried to play through them maybe too much at times
