Keenan Lewis came to camp as one of the top competitors for William Gay’s cornerback spot, but most of the questions coming his way were about his close friend and former high school teammate Mike Wallace.
Wallace has not signed the one-year tender the Steelers offered him and hasn’t reported to camp yet.
Lewis and Wallace worked out together in New Orleans all offseason and while he doesn’t know when Wallace will be there, he said he is optimistic he will be at camp.
“He’s planning on coming to camp. I’m pretty sure he’ll be here,” said Lewis. “He’s a football player. He loves playing the game. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t want to sit out. He worked this offseason. He’s in shape and ready to go.
“He’s a football player. He loves doing what he does. I’m pretty sure it’s kind of tough not being here with the team. He’ll be here and ready to work. I don’t know where he is, I just know when he comes he will be ready.”
Lewis said he is looking forward to getting on the field and excited about the competition.
“I’m ready for camp,” said Lewis, who arrived in a Smart Car. “Whatever the coaches have planned for me I’m ready to take that next step and go with it.”
