Default Re: Keenan Lewis Worth 8 Million a Year?

No. Lewis is not worth 8 million a year. He has one career interception. QBs throwing at him have a rating of 80. That is right around average. Lewis will never generate turnovers- he will never be thrown at more often than he was in his first season as a starter.

I don't get the disconnect between fans wanting more turnovers and then also wanting to resign the number 2 corner who doesn't force turnovers for just under premier market value. There is no way the Steelers can sign Lewis for 8 million per without seriously damaging other parts of the team.

The emergence of Cortez Allen who is Keenan Lewis + turnovers makes this a no-brainer. Either draft a cb this round in the first or in 2015 when Taylor is through and pay them 5 mill a year to be the number one corner. Pay Allen NOW!!! Allen has shown he is going to be a game-changing corner... don't wait until he is asking 8-10 million per year.

Keep Lewis for 4.5 or less. There are too many big salaries on defense.

If Patrick Peterson and Asante Samuel are making 4.8 per year it is good enough for Keenan Lewis.

The Seattle Seahawks entire secondary will be making less than 8 million in 2013! I am talking about 5 corners and 4 safeties. Stop the madness!
