truthfully mitch, you're right. The fact that he can't get back on the field and it has been knees, hips, now the abdomen, it just doesn't sound good. Yeah I am sure he could come back and play great, but what are the odds. In '13 he was one of the best in the league.

Think we are learning our lesson in terms of contracts? BTW- I also wonder if he was a malcontent as well? Part of the JR crew?

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

Sounds like he's finally breaking down and the Saints know it.

With so many great young prospects waiting their turn it really makes sense.

Much respect for Westbank. He gave it his all for us.

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

I too was surprised. However when you think about the injuries and lack of playing time lately along with him not getting along with Allen, it makes sense.

Well, another screwup by Loomis. Give him more guaranteed money and cut him within the year.

As I just referred to in my previous post, this is by no means a screw up by Loomis. You cannot factor an injury into the evaluation. It had nothing to do with the deal. Injuries are simply a part of the game. You can hate on Loomis all you want, but this isn't on him at all.

We only have $1,305,000 in dead money left on the books after this season. I think we can absorb a little hit, especially given the fact that the cap will increase again next season by about twice what the cap hit will total.

Cap is no longer an issue with the Saints. I know that's difficult for some to realize with all the misinformation that has been spread by talking heads that know less about the cap than they know about humility.

You and I have discussed this quite a bit on here, both of us on the same side with it. i realize it, but nonetheless it still sucks. what will he cost against cap this year and next? Let's hope he isgns with buffalo to offset the cost
