Keen on Lewis
By Harv Aronson
An ex-Steeler might be returning.
Keenan Lewis who was cut by the New Orleans Saints last Friday is looking for a new employer and on his list of potentials are the Pittsburgh Steelers. Lewis spent four seasons wearing the Black and Gold before departing for the Saints via free agency.
Now a free agent again, Lewis is in Pittsburgh today to talk contract. However, reportedly there are six other teams interested in his services. Lewis is 30 and missed 10 games last season after suffering several injuries. More on the Steelers on our page today.
A once promising cornerback, if signed, Lewis will compete with William Gay and Rock Cockrell for a starting role as will the other cornerbacks on the roster.
While we extend a happy birthday to Tyler Glasnow of the Pittsburgh Pirates who turns 23 today, the Bucs are struggling once again. After tickling the fans fancy with six straight wins, the Pirates have now lost four straight and even with a wild card entry, this team is not prepared for a deep playoff run.
