NFL News (4/20) - Ray Lewis whines, Broncos tried 3 times to trade up in the draft

Ravens | R. Lewis not endorsing Billick
Fri, 21 Apr 2006 07:18:20 -0700

Jamison Hensley, of the Baltimore Sun, reports Baltimore Ravens LB Ray Lewis declined to give Ravens head coach Brian Billick a vote of confidence during a television interview Wednesday, April 20. In an interview with Comcast SportsNet, Lewis was asked if keeping Billick was a move in the right direction for the Ravens. Lewis paused before responding with "no comment." In another interview with ESPN, Lewis criticized the team for not providing him with two big defensive tackles that could shield him from blockers. Lewis also told ESPN that he has never asked for a trade from team. "The issue is: Are you going to let me do what I do?" Lewis said after mentioning he sees other linebackers having the opportunity to run free to make the tackle. "And if not, let me go."

I guess they wanted VD, but aren't gonna get him now. I wonder why they wouldn't look to San Fran's 6th pick. They want out. Maybe they were the 3rd team.

I woner who they'd be targetting... a QB maybe? bush and mario williams would most likely be gone, at #5, Db'F and one QB would be gone too.

vernon davis? that makes the most sense. they tried to make putzier a go to guy like they tried to shove throws at lelie, and it also just didn't work. They are a pretty good team, so adding one amazing piece would probably be better than minor upgrades.

yeah, the saints aren't going to move down that far i don't think... and it said top 5, but not 3 or 5

#15 + #22 = 1830 points. #3 = 2200 points, #4 = 1800 points, #5 = 1700 points. Again, the charts aren't set in stone, but for those that wanted to know.

Vince Young would be a great fit in Denver. Of course they are taking a huge risk going behind the Titans pre draft.

I don't think anyone WANTS VD. It just kind of happens.

Imagine Ron Mexico and VD on the same team, i can hear the call now-" Ron Mexico just threw his third touchdown pass of the day to VD, burning the defense for 6 more....... Boy this pass catch combo is on fire"
