Default Steelers Keenan Lewis hints at 'a secret'

Steelers Keenan Lewis hints at 'a secret'

By SteelCityRoller on Mar 1 2013



Lewis did not announce some really big news on Thursday. Lewis did not give Steelers fans reason to believe he may be close to signing a new contract. Lewis did say whatever it wasn't, it was big.

It is no secret the Pittsburgh Steelers will attempt to compete for the services of Keenan Lewis in 2013, after having a great first season as a full-time starter in 2012. Lewis is an unrestricted free-agent this off-season.

While cap compliance is within reach, few felt confident the team would be able to seriously compete to re-sign Lewis. On Thursday through his Facebook account, he technically didn't give Steelers fans any reason to believe any different. However, it is what he did not say.

Good news, thank you lord, you always told me believe and keep faith and you will handle the rest. It's a secret, I'm not telling nobody what it is either, just know I am about to turn up.

Early projections toward Lewis' eventual asking-price have been anywhere from $35 to $50 million, and is expected to have many suitors when free-agency begins with the beginning of the league year at 4 p.m. ET March 12.

The team spent most of this week restructuring the contracts of Lawrence Timmons, Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. LaMarr Woodley is expected to restructure his deal before the week is up, too. The team had to be compliant with the NFL salary cap before the deadline, with enough consideration for their restricted free agents and exclusive rights free agents.

We've seen this before, most recently with James Harrison who left a cryptic status update about signing with a team other than Pittsburgh, which turned out to be his interaction with dodgeball. Lewis made no mention of his football team, family or future; but he definitely seems grateful this morning.

The conclusion many immediately jumped to was a possible agreement being reached between Lewis and the Steelers. If this is the case, we will have to wait to find out. The top-ranked pass defense from 2012 would be expected to continue its excellence if Lewis returns to start opposite of Ike Taylor, with impressive showings from now third-year corners Cortez Allen and Curtis Brown, sometimes.

While we won't bother speaking for Mr. Lewis directly, we will definitely keep our eyes on news-tickers when the deadline hits. If Lewis truly has reached an agreement with the team, they will most likely announce it at the beginning of the free-agency period.

For now, Lewis will just have to keep his little secret, while all of Steeler Nation hopes he spills the beans. He could be speaking of something completely unrelated to football, although good luck convincing his fan-base otherwise.

Rumor has it Ray Horton and the Browns are gonna come knocking. It makes sense, hurting the Steelers and gaining a corner is a huge plus.

The Steelers have no chance if Lewis wants money. The Browns have tons of cap room.

another teaser article, it doesn't mean squat when the money tap starts flowing

I hope we can get him resigned and we need another one in the up coming draft this year.

We'll need somebody to cover Mike Wallace, that's for sure.

Please, let him be resigned.

If the Steelers wait until after March 12, other teams with cap room CAN offer MORE money. Ergo, sign him NOW, when the Steelers are the ONLY team who can negotiate with him.

really hope we don't resign him to big money. please let take the money and run Lewis. Not in the mood to see you get signed to big contract by Steelers only to get exposed when you finally have to face good WR and teams with passing games unlike last season. He is not a top 50 corner

Brown was not impressive at all. He was slow to react and slow when it came to running.
