article linkKeenan Lewis said:""It's a business. They can't wait on one player. They gotta do what's best for them, and I gotta do what's best for me," said Lewis, who said he still has the utmost respect for head coach Sean Payton and the Saints organization -- but added he didn't feel as comfortable over the past year, especially after Ryan was fired.
Lewis, who began his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers before signing with his hometown Saints in 2013, said he never had any specific arguments with Allen, who joined the Saints staff as a senior assistant in January 2015. But Lewis said he heard through other people that "I wasn't his guy."
Lewis also said he thinks the Saints were "obviously having problems with my injury situation."
The Saints have not commented on Lewis' release, but the decision likely was made for chemistry reasons as much as football reasons."
