Keenan Lewis Released

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don't like this. Why not IR him and let him get 100%? I know what kind of CB he is healthy....

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

nah i am not going drama queen on the DA and Lewis relationship

If any player on defense fit the DA tough requirements it was Lewis.

can not make the club after 2 years in the tub.

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

I'm not sure about Keenan regardless, he showed he could be a very good player but as soon as we made some team-first moves he turned into a whiny little cry baby.

Let's move forward with the young guys, they all seem hungry for success.

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

I like him. Great player when he was on the field. I wonder if he couldn't get along with DA because DA wouldn't kiss his ass and patronize him like RR did with all his players. I'm sure he made that statement hoping to hook up with him in Buffalo.

And as far as I'm concerned, there's too many players today that put themselves first before the team. If he and DA didn't see eye to eye, I can't think of a reason why. Did DA tell him that he was going to be cut if he couldn't get on the field? Then KL didn't want to risk further injury? Because that's what I think happened. So he got cut and he's mad at DA.

Another bad decision with Mr. Benson's money.

It was not a bad decision. The deal was bad. We have had a string of these contracts where players have way too much leverage and it hurts long range.

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

I don't like this move. I know PJ has looked in pre season but pre season and regular season are too different animals. With Keenan and Breaux, we had two CB's who are well versed in NFL offenses. I just hope that Keenan doesn't sign with a Rival and come back to bite us in the Azz.

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
I wasn't aware that he made it to practice.

And, yes, he could even have a wink, wink deal with the Saints to return while not costing a roster spot while rehabbing.

CB Keenan Lewis told me he has been released by the Saints. He insisted that he is excited and ready for a fresh start, understands the business and thinks Saints were ready to move on with their young corners.

Lewis also said they weren't arguing over his injury rehab, but he let the team know he wanted to wait until he was back close to 100 percent instead of being a part-time player at 70 percent. He said he is eager to catch on with another team and show the Saints they made a mistake.
Sounds to me like this was a Saints decision that KL didn't really agree with.
