Kristian: Saints ink deal with CB Keenan Lewis

The Saints have signed Steelers cornerback, and New Orleans native, Keenan Lewis to a five-year deal.

A league source tells me the deal is worth $26 million, with $10 million of that guaranteed.

After a standout career at O. Perry Walker, Lewis went on to sucess out of Oregon State, then became a four-year veteran after being drafted in the 3rd round by the Steelers.

He's a big physical corner with nice size at 6" 1' and 208 pounds.  He posted 71 tackles last season with Pittsburgh.

"I’m very excited to be able to come back to my hometown,” Lewis said. “Having grown up here I understand the passion that the fans have for the Saints and I’m blessed to be able to have the chance to play in front of them here in the future. I had a great visit with the Saints and am thankful for the time I spent with the Pittsburgh Steelers and wish them continued success.”

Answer to Prayer!
The Saints desperately need a good corner, and Lewis is definitely an upgrade. I look for him to challenge for the starting role opposite Jabari Greer. WHO DAT?!
