    Never noticed him before but he is probably better than our depth at safety.

    With this signing. I would not be surprised if we cut Manning.

    Edit

    Since Manning is still not 100% healthy, and has a decent sized contract.

    Unless he makes a miraculous turnaround hopefully he is just camp completion.

    Lewis was rated 52nd/85 Safetys overall in 2013 (>25% snaps) by PFF.

    That would be ahead of Swearing and Keo and just behind Manning. (And ahead of Quintin Demps, KC) So below average. 2012 he was bottom 10.

    And that includes a terrible 3 game stretch to end the season. Remember the bomb from Luck to TY in the playoffs, yea Lewis was responsible for that lol....hopefully Romeo gets him playing like he was in 2010 as a rookie with Romeo as his DC

    I sure hope not, Manning is one of our few solid starts left.

    Agreed! If anyone, Pleasant or Keo should be worried.

    Lewis had numerous nagging lower limb injuries in his earlier career. But December 2011, he sustained a torn pectoral muscle and required major shoulder reconstructive surgery in January 2012 (likely other structures were involved). Later that year, in a preseason game, he re-injured that same shoulder (purportedly another type of injury) which did not go to surgery. However, he ended up missing 7 games during that season. Since this last re-injury, he has not resembled anywhere close to the player he was prior. Last year's pass defense and INTs have been quite contrasting to preinjury level. It's awfully difficult to PD and INT when you can't raise your arms quickly and fully. It would not surprise me if he has continued to rehab, trying to put off a necessary secondary surgery.

    A study of NFL players demonstrated that despite surgery and prolonged rehab, a Grade III shoulder pectoral muscle tear (which is the only only that would typically require surgery) will leave a significant percentage of these players with significant strength deficits. Furthermore, additional limitations of range of motion may result.

    I really thought they'd get rid of Manning, but so far he's still with us so maybe they are going to retain him. But as far as Keo goes, his days might be numbered. But then I might get fooled and they keep Keo and release Manning,
    we'll see, but I don't think so ?

    I love how the offseason is basically all about trading out pig turds for cow turds.

    Small upgrade at S depth. He's the third best Safety on this roster.

    Hopefully this spells the end for Keo.
