Signed to a big deal in free agency in 2013, Keenan Lewis was terrific in his first season in New Orleans. Just a few years later, the team has released him.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported the development, helping to explain Lewis' goodbye message Friday evening on Instagram. Lewis was limited to only six games last season because of surgeries for an MCL tear, torn labrum and sports hernia. Lewis was dealing with a hip problem this offseason. He was set to make $2.7 million.
