Whether it was injury or chemistry issue, losing Keenan Lewis hurts Saints
Mike Triplett -- ESPN Staff Writer
The New Orleans Saints’ decision to release Keenan Lewis isn’t a complete shock. There were signs they might be ready to turn the page, and they already have started moving on with some promising young replacements.
But there still is no way to put a positive spin on this divorce.
The Saints either didn’t think that Lewis would get healthy enough to help them on the field, or they felt like he had become a malcontent who should be removed for chemistry reasons. It probably was some combination of both.
Either way, that means the Lewis who played so well in 2013 and 2014 is never coming back. And, man, the Saints really could have used that version of Lewis to help fix their ailing defense.
