Top CBs are getting $10M a year. In this league an above average CB will get something around $6M-$8M. Saying Lewis only worth $4M is ignoring the market.

Leave it to Steelers Fans to over rate their players
What when Lewis was a rookie or a second year guy? I bet you'll be the first to complain next season if we lose him and our secondary falls apart.

I don't know how you can define those as horrible seasons when he hardly even saw the field.

our secondary did fall apart when we lost lewis / cortez allen, even tony homo had a field day, so yes he's worth the money.

#2 starting cb money is what i'd pay him

difference is all these guys you're comparing him too, had more then just 1 year and also make plays on the ball ... they put in work to get that good contract ...

There is no way I'd pay him 6-8 mill a year off of 1 year ...

take a 4 year deal worth about 20 ... or a 2 year deal worth about 4, then if he succeeds and produces then sign him for big ...

But i'm not over reacting to one decent year, when he was covering #2s most of the year... and paying him #1 play making money

i hear you but he's had more than just this past year, in the previous year, he wasn't pencilled as the #2, but he was lined up as the #2 every time they went to nickel (which was actually a lot), and he's done a good job then.

he played well 2 years ago, and this last year's performance proved that it wasn't a fluke, and he's ready to be the starter. with that said, cortez allen is giving him some serious competition, let the two duke it out in training camp :)

Agreed. Ike is almost done and a Lewis-Allen combo will make a great combo for the next 7 years

I just watched the Pitt-Raven(Bmore) game and Lewis was a beast in that game. I want him re-signed. Actually if its him or Troy, I'm taking cut Troy and re-sign Lewis. I think he still has upside, which is exicting.

Also, they need to sign Starks as well. He stayed healthy and was our best Olineman. It will be tough ($$$) to keep him but Gilbert hasn't shown that he can stay healthy. And they will have to keep Ben upright or we'll be in the same boat next season. Let Adams and Gilbert fight for the RT with one of them being there for depth. Let Foote walk. They need more explosiveness. Not just steady play.

How many interceptions did this guy have? $8M a year? I don't think so; if he thinks he's that good, let him test free agency. Antonio Brown - look what this kid did last year after the F/O jumped the gun and paid him all of that money. Imagine how much money they could have saved if they had waited one more year with Brown. Now, hindsight 20/20, they did not know; but I think they were disgusted with Wallace, jumped the gun on Brown. Antonio is good, but he's too immature, maybe he will pick it back up in 2013.
