Former Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis is going to Pittsburgh tonight for a visit with the Steelers, a source tells Josh Katzenstein of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Lewis has drawn interest from at least six teams, Katzenstein adds. Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (on Twitter) also hears that the Steelers have interest in Lewis, though he says that his hip injury is a concern.
Lewis, 30, was drafted by the Steelers in the third round of the 2009 draft. He went on to spent the first four seasons of his career in Pittsburgh before signing a five-year, $26.3MM deal with his native New Orleans in March 2013. The ex-Oregon State standout started in all 16 of the Saints’ regular-season games in both 2013 and 2014, something he had also done in his final year with the Steelers, before injuries held him to a mere six contests in 2015.
The Steelers, meanwhile, could use some help at cornerback after learning that Senquez Golson has suffered yet another setback.
