Keenan Lewis Proving to Be Worth Every Penny

When New Orleans native Keenan Lewis chose to come back home by signing with the Saints, everyone had high expectations. No one was happier than Lewis.

Lewis signed a 5-year deal on March 14, 2013 worth $ 26.3M, with $ 10.5M in guaranteed money.

After a horrid preseason outing against Andre Johnson (7 catches, 131 yards), fans were starting to wonder what we got ourselves into.

After last night’s performance of limiting Dez Bryant to a single catch for 44 yards, the argument could be made that Lewis should be someone to consider for the Pro Bowl.

Through 9 games, Lewis has 3 interceptions, 20 tackles, 7 pass defenses, and a forced fumble. Lewis has more interceptions this season than he had combined in four seasons with Pittsburgh.

Aside from Dez Bryant (1-44), Lewis has been tasked with matching up against the likes of Julio Jones (7-76-TD), Vincent Jackson (5-77), Larry Fitzgerald (5-64), Mike Wallace (3-24), and Brandon Marshall (4-30-TD).

“Having the honor to come back to the hometown Saints and just give back to my community, everybody, just give them some good football, and help my team get to the Super Bowl and win it,” -Keenan Lewis

If you’re a Saints fan, you can’t be happier for Lewis, what he has meant to the Saints secondary, and how his role is one of many that has helped turn the tide for the Saints defense.
