Lewis, a native of the city's West Bank, took to Instagram on Friday night to assure Saints faithful that he isn't going anywhere.
"This is my home," Lewis wrote, via The Times-Picayune. "I (have) been (here) 28 years. From playing a high school championship in here, to helping Katrina victims with a little bit of my college funds, to trying my best to help this beautiful home and people get a Super Bowl. I love this place and every person who (lives) close or in it. Trust me, leaving was never (an) option. I love it (too) much. Who Dat."
