One of Rob Ryan's best defensive players says he's unhappy with his contract.

Keenan Lewis, the team's best cornerback, wants the franchise to guarantee the remaining $10.8 million of the five-year deal he signed in 2013.

Lewis is a west bank native and says that while he wants to finish his career with the Saints, he wants the organization to show him loyalty. If not, he's ready to miss OTAs and possibly training camp. Lewis admits it's become a bigger issue following the release of several former teammates.

“Very scary to me as a player,” Lewis said. “Very scary. My family is comfortable. My wife is even to the point where she's scared now. My child goes to school here, the whole community where I stay. You always want to have that insurance this is where we're gonna be at for quite some time. I don't have any more guaranteed money. But at least I feel that I played to the standard where we can work something out.”

FOX 8 Sports has also confirmed that the Saints are interested in signing another Louisiana product at corner, free agent Tramon Williams, a native of Assumption. Williams spent the past eight seasons with Green Bay, missing just one game while posting 28 career interceptions.
