Guido,

You forgot that he practiced. Even though it was one day, he was already off of PUP. And once you come off PUP you cannot go back on it.

Only options at this point to keep him on the team was IR or a roster spot. Couldn't afford the roster spot with the young guns pushing and if put on IR would not be back this year.

Lewis now has the ability to work his way back to health and then pick the team that he thinks he can contribute to. BTW there's nothing that says that 10 weeks from now that is not in fact the Saints. It doesn't look like he burned a bridge.

SFIAH

Super Bowl Championships New Orleans Saints:1, Atlanta:0, Carolina:0

Life is good.

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

I was hoping against reality that he would contribute at some point this year.
We all saw the writing on the wall via rumors and sources, but it sounds like, perhaps there was one more "malcontent" that needed to go when you add KL's comments to Triplette about wanting Ryan over Allen.
Dunno.
I have a feeling that the spin machine on both sides will be heard from soon.

""It's a business. They can't wait on one player. They gotta do what's best for them, and I gotta do what's best for me," said Lewis, who said he still has the utmost respect for head coach Sean Payton and the Saints organization -- but added he didn't feel as comfortable over the past year, especially after Ryan was fired.

Lewis, who began his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers before signing with his hometown Saints in 2013, said he never had any specific arguments with Allen, who joined the Saints staff as a senior assistant in January 2015. But Lewis said he heard through other people that "I wasn't his guy."

Lewis also said he thinks the Saints were "obviously having problems with my injury situation."

The Saints have not commented on Lewis' release, but the decision likely was made for chemistry reasons as much as football reasons."

The fact that a grapevine exists is dangerous imo. If true and It was true that there was rumblings of him not being Allens guy then there is a problem. DA should have kept that between himself and the coaches along with Lewis rather than letting others find out about it. If I'm a boss and I don't like one of my employees I'm not going to tell any of my other employees about it outside of management. That's kind of a crap thing to do.
Again who knows what the truth is.

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

His comments also lower my opinion of him. I was willing to give him the Benifit of the doubt when he whined about his contract. It was kind of unclassy but he could play so I didn't care. The Saints bent over backwards and probably bumped some other guys of the roster to meet his demands. Now this, which sounds like it's a matter of his opinion and inability to fit in with change. Rubs me wrong.

Dunno.
Could be a lot of truth to that + KL is a outspoken guy who doesn't shy away from Twitter/Instagram. This is Coach Dennis Allen's inaugural season & he has a LOT to prove. He has made it clear that he is playing the best 11 men at all times regardless of tenure. Possibly some friction between the two however this may be a encouraging sign that Allen is not here to pacify players who aren't getting it done.

Bottom line business.
