The Pittsburgh Steelers may have drafted a cornerback last night but they aren’t done exploring the position. Ed Bouchette reports the team is hosting CB Keenan Lewis for a visit today.

Lewis has had surgery and been working to rehab from hip injuries that have plagued him. Pittsburgh brought Lewis in for a visit shortly before the start of the 2016 season but ultimately passed, likely due to concerns about his health. He sat out the entire 2016 season and played just six games in 2015, making six tackles. Now about to turn 31, it’s hard to envision him giving a team anything more than deep depth but the Steelers are still thin at outside corner.
He was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2009 draft by the Steelers. During his time in Pittsburgh, he started 17 games, recording 84 tackles and intercepting one pass. His best year came in 2017 where he picked off four passes and started all 16 games for the New Orleans Saints.
