Lewis will be available for autographs and pictures from 5 p.m.-6:15 p.m. at the museum, located at Gate B on the Plaza Level of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. All ticket holders are admitted free on game days.
Lewis, who prepped at Grace King, currently serves as a team ambassador for the Saints. Lewis played for the Saints from 2001-2006 before finishing his NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers in 2007.

In 2002, Lewis set an NFL record for combined kick-punt return yardage with 2,432 yards total (1,807 kickoff, 625 punt). He is currently the Saints’ all-time career leader in punt returns (142) and punt return yardage (1,482).
