How far has Lewis' price tag fallen?
Going into FA there were a few decent CBs available in a group that included Keenan Lewis.
Talib, Grimes, Smith, DRC
Now, some more have hit the market fast.......
Antoine Winfield, Michael Huff (CB/S), Nnamdi, Deangelo Hall, Aaron Ross, Chris Gamble, Rashean Mathis.
No superstars in the bunch, but neither is Lewis. Just a whole bunch of names to muddle up the situation. If prices come down, does Lewis look to land back in the 'burgh at a reduced rate?
Thought Hall signed wit the Lions?
Depends on what Lewis is asking for. I think he will get much less than his asking price in the end. Each day that goes by without him signing is costing him money.
Chris Gamble retired after being released. Just an FYI.....

could benefit us.
He's visiting his hometown Saints today.
Hall of Famer
Letting him walk is a bad move. The Steelers put out the information that they feel that Cortez Allen is ready to step into a starting role so they are comfortable letting Lewis walk. In the meantime we have a 33 year old CB on the other side.
This might give us a shot. A lot of guys on the market. It'll be interesting to see what he finally signs for. Hopefully, he signs with us.
I think they are in a similar cap situation as we are.

would be nice to keep him in the system.
Talk about a flooded market. There is 3 1/4'ish pages of CB's! Yes some of these guys are 1st teir, 2nd teir, bottom of barrel but WOW. http://www.nfl.com/freeagency
If Lewis leaves (NO PLEASE). I want to see this young mans up side. Is there any players on this list that would be cheap enough to come in and play better then say Gay at this point?
