The New Orleans Saints are looking to improve their defense which was dead last in most categories last season.  Yesterday, the Saints did just that by signing corner back Keenan Lewis to a five year contract.

Lewis is no stranger to the New Orleans area. Keenan Lewis attended O. Perry Walker High School in the New Orleans area and broke into the NFL as a third round draft pick (96th overall) in 2009.

Keenan Lewis played for the Pittsburgh Steelers the last four seasons. Lewis played  college football at Oregon State, where he was a four-year starter for the Beavers.

During is four year NFL career so far, Lewis has played in 45 career regular season games, making 17 starts, and has registered 112 tackles (95 solo), one interception return for nine yards, 34 passes defensed and one forced fumble. On special teams he has chipped in 13 tackles and one forced fumble.
