Steelers reasoning for letting Lewis go...
Does anyone else find the reason the Steelers gave for letting Keenan Lewis walk a totally misleading reason? When questioned on why they let Keenan Lewis walk for a cap friendly and cheap deal the Steelers stated that they let him walk because they like Cortez Allen. Meanwhile, their other starting CB is in his 30's, has a very expensive contract, and is coming off a season in which he broke his leg.
Should the easy follow up question not have been 'what about Ike'? If they like Allen so much, why not cut Ike then sign Lewis and have your CB position locked up for seasons to come? They didn't even offer Lewis a deal at all!
