With the free agency period opening Tuesday here are five defensive players worth watching as the New Orleans Saints begin assembling their 2013 roster. While the Saints, who are still over the salary cap, are not expected to be major players they will make some moves.

Cornerback Keenan Lewis, Pittsburgh
Playing on a $1.26 million tender last season, Lewis, a New Orleans native who prepped at O.P. Walker, had a breakout season in which he led the NFL in pass breakups. The 6-foot, 200-pound Lewis has good size and speed and is considered one of the top cover cornerbacks on the free agent market.

Why the Saints should sign him:
The defense was awful last season against the pass and gave up far too many big plays. Lewis would form a nice trio with cornerbacks Jabari Greer and Patrick Robinson.
