Peter Finney, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, reports free-agent WR Michael L. Lewis (Saints) is planning to look for another team. "You bet, I wanted to end my career as a Saint.

But turning me loose now gives me time to shop around, which I plan on doing. I still feel I have some good years left, years I can contribute," Lewis said.

Saints | M. Lewis still unable to practice

Tue, 08 Aug 2006 15:56:34 -0700

The Associated Press reports New Orleans Saints WR Michael Lewis (knee) is still unable to practice with the team. He sat out practice once again Tuesday, Aug. 8. He spends almost every practice riding a stationary exercise bike. Lewis said the problem is not his anterior cruciate ligament, which was surgically repaired after an injury that sidelined him for most of last season. A subsequent arthroscopic procedure in late June to remove loose particles from behind his knee cap is what has set back his rehabilitation, he said. "My ACL is straight. They went in just to clean up things behind it," Lewis said. "In minicamp I was running around, feeling good and everything, but when I got it checked right afterward they had some loose particles that needed to be cleaned." Tuesday morning, Lewis was off the bike, taking part in a special teams walkthrough. In recent days he has caught a few punts after practice. But he has yet to return a kick against the coverage team and still can't say for sure when he'll be ready. Head coach Sean Payton offered mildly encouraging words for Lewis when he recently referred to him as established. "He's had a great career as a returner. For him it's more how does he come off this injury," Payton said. If the Saints decide to let him go, another team might pick him up.
