Maybe his secret isn't even football related

Maybe I haven't been following CB salaries close enough, but I don't think we should pay big for a #2 CB with only one year of starting experience to go off of. He played well this year and I'd like to see us keep him, but we definitely shouldn't break the bank on him already. It's getting to the point that everybody thinks they are due a big contract for playing well in a few games or one season.

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.

This is not good news for Steeler fans. Colbert has already said they will not offer a contract to any of their free agents until an offer is made to them. Sounds like Lewis has got a super offer from someone else in the bag.......and he quite excited about the amount.

As he should be...He became a Steeler fan board legend with zero picks and second receiver coverage ( Ike ) He could be Larry Brown the second.

I don't see where Lewis thinks he deserves big money either.The guy had 0 interceptions and cannot cover very simple short routes, he is 2nd best of a mediocre group of DBs. Taylor isn't really worth the 8million a year Lewis wants but maybe drafting a CB with the ability to tackle in the open field will open some eyes on what a complete corner is.

I've got to disagree with calling them mediocre DB's. we led the league against the pass without a significant pass-rush.

Josh Gordon WR -Cleveland had similar numbers as Wallace this year. I think we can find CB's to cover 800 yd a year receivers.
