Default Re: Keenan Lewis Worth 8 Million a Year?

Honestly the corners that have come from the Steelers most recently were Gay and McFadden and they have been busts for the Cardinals. I don't think Steelers corners have been a hot commodity. Ike has typically gone against the other teams best receivers. The secondary got TORCHED when Ike went down. The Chargers and Cowboys put up enormous yardage immediately after Ike's injury.

Asante Samuel is making 4.8 million a year- he has the NFL record with 4 pick 6s in the postseason. Samuel has 50 career ints.

I just do not see a market value of 7 million for a player with 1 career interception who has been solid but no where near a shutdown corner and who has not played against the other team's best receiver. I would be disappointed to see Lewis price himself out of Pittsburgh but that is a very real possibility.
