    But you want to pay Lewis 8-10 million a year? He doesn't creat any turnovers either.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    If he wouldn't say what it was, it means he talked to a team this weekend, agreed to terms, but, can't announce it until free agency officially begins. If he had signed with the Steelers, I think he would have said it already.

    IMO, he's gone and got a FAT contract offer somewhere...

    no. that it is not it. that tweet or fb post is from March 1st or 2nd. no team would agree to terms with him then. that would have been tampering.

    and, nice 6th round pick
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I wouldn't pay Lewis 10 million...It's tough to say what his market is right now. I sure as hell wouldn't pay a 33.5 y/o that can't catch a cold close to 10/mil. That's for damn sure.

    I'd offer Lewis about $8M per year max. He has had one good season. If someone wants to pay him $10M per year then good luck with that.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Taking stock at the corners

    As we sit here in early March, the top three cornerbacks shape up as Ike Taylor and Cortez Allen starting and William Gay in the slot in the nickel defense. Maybe they will pull a rabbit out of their hat and re-sign Lewis, but that is beginning to look as difficult as re-signing Wallace.

    They would not have signed Gay had they thought Lewis would be back or if Curtis Brown developed the way they had hoped. Brown was a third-round pick from Texas in 2011, and Allen was a fourth-rounder from that football hotbed, The Citadel. Allen was a late bloomer, having not played football until his senior year in high school (thus, The Citadel).

    Keenan Lewis will command 5-6 million/yr in FA. I think Steelers will allow KLewis to check the market before matching the offer.

    There are too many DBs in Free Agency this season. KLew problem is he played well only for one season. Now if he had come to party in 2011 things could have been different.

    Few Free Agent DB:
    Charles Woodson (GB)
    Brent Grimes (ATL)
    Aqib Talib (NE)
    Sean Smith (MIA)
    Derek Cox (JAC)
    Cary Williams (BAL)
    Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (PHI)\
    Greg Toler
    Tracy Porter
    Chris Houston


    D-Revis and Nmadi should also be on market at right price.
    Steelers Draft
    Rd 1: Mike Evans - WR
    Rd 2: Kyle Van Noy - ILB/OLB
    Rd 3c: Philip Gaines - CB
    Rd 4: Taylor Hart - DE
    Rd 5: Justin Ellis - DT
    Rd 5c:Xavier Grimble -TE

    Flipping through the radio on my work commute, a Cleveland sports talk host mentioned Keenan Lewis and said, I quote, "I would like the Browns to do better."

    Ouch...
