According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Steelers would entertain the idea of re-signing veteran CB Keenan Lewis. However, Dulac admits that Lewis’ hip injury remains a “big concern.”
The Saints officially released Lewis on Monday, so he’s now an unrestricted free agent.
Lewis previously told Mike Triplett that he’s excited and ready for a fresh start with a new team.
Lewis, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Steelers back in 2009. He spent four years in Pittsburgh before signing a five-year, $25.5 million contract with the Saints in 2013.
New Orleans cut him loose in a move that freed up $2.75 million in available cap space.
In 2015, Lewis was limited to appearing in six games and recording six tackles, no interceptions and two pass defenses.
