Payton wanted to put him on IR or the PUP but Lewis wasn't having it and he ran to the media telling them he'd be ready to go for week 1. You know Payton isn't having any of that. Lewis made their decision for them by protesting through the media.

He hasn't been healthy in two seasons and to think that he will be the same player after knee and hip injuries is a long-shot...

Talented fan-favorite corner and then the injuries pile up and force the inevitable. Same with Greer and Mackenzie.

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

I love his passion for the game and will never forget him pleading to get back in the game after they took his helmet away after a concussion. He was a nice surprise at his first TC.

So far we've got good looking potential to replace him.

I'm grateful to him but I see him in a different light now.
Good luck and thanks for your support.

Que sera, sera.

Texans could care less. Time to move on with the guys on the current roster.

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

Am I the only one that isn't 100% convinced Breaux is going to be a legit good starter? People act like he will get out there and do what Greer and Lewis did. He had a good rookie season last year but we had a really bad defense. I'm not sure he didn't just stand out because he was the best option on a really bad defense.

The only thing I worry about is him locating the ball over his shoulder at times and yellow flags. I feel like I'm nitpicking, but other than that, I think he's great.

True, many said it was one of the toughest thing to translate from CFL to NFL. They are allowed to be more physical in the CFL.

But he's now had a full year to improve and you could see him getting better and better as the year progressed.

I'm optimistic about Breaux/PJWillimas at CB, Swann at NB, and Finnegan, Harris and Crawley as back-ups.

Its an awfully young group and they will make some mistakes. But they still may be better than anything we've had in years.

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

Was it chemistry with new DC? Was it his injury(s) and slow recovery? Was it the fact that he's 30 and it's unknown if he'll ever be close to 100% again?
I'd say Yes, Yes, and Yes.

Next!
