Re: Keenan Lewis Released

How is this going to hit the cap
He still had a load of guaranteed money left

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

Too much upside to the newbies to keep him I guess. Not enough room on the roster for him when he's constantly hurt. At least he went out with class. Of course he's still getting paid....so I guess that helps.

That's why I'm a little shocked by this. I'm pretty sure the dead money will be substantial, but I'll need someone who's better at understanding that stuff to clarify.

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

Sounds a bit of he wanted IR come back when ready. Team wanted him in earlier and sick of injuries.

Time for Williams to step up


Mike Triplett
ESPN Staff Writer


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 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. 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.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

This guy was our only decent corner besides Breaux last year. They must really like the young guys if they are letting him walk away .

Re: Keenan Lewis Released

Or they know they'll have to stick him on IR but want Rankins back meaning Lewis would miss the season anyway
