Saints sign CB Keenan Lewis (5 years, $26M; $11M guaranteed): A Grade
Keenan Lewis was the second-best cornerback still available in free agency. He's better than both Sean Smith and Cary Williams, yet he's slated to make less per year than both of them. This is not because teams didn't view Lewis as an inferior cornerback; he simply took a discount to play with the Saints. According to the Chicago Sun-Times' Sean Jensen, another team offered Lewis a much larger contract.

This is obviously an awesome acquisition for the Saints. They're filling their huge corner need with a very talented player at a very reasonable price.

I find it hard to believe he turned down a MUCH larger contract. Maybe a larger contract, but not much larger. That would be a first.

I read it was one million more a year for five years. I'd say that equals MUCH, wouldn't you?

Lewis on WWL just said he turned down 1.5 million a season more from Eagles and Titans. This kid is going to ball for us, he WANTS to be here. Turned down 7.5 million yeah that's huge!!
