The Saints are reportedly close to sealing a deal with Steelers cornerback Keenan Lewis, according to an Adam Schefter tweet earlier today.

As we wrote yesterday, Lewis was back in his hometown of New Orleans yesterday meeting with the team.

Free agent cornerback Derek Cox set the standard yesterday, signing a four-year deal with the Chargers worth $20 million. Which means a deal with Lewis could be in the neighborhood of $4 million per year.

According to his Wikipedia page, Lewis is already a member of the New Orleans Saints.

Meanwhile, Rob Ryan is also pushing hard to land cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. Is this an either/or situation and signing Lewis means no deal for Asomugha? Or would the Saints sign both players?
