Ray Lewis and Free Agency

First, let me state that this is not a thread suggesting that Ray Lewis should come to Washington, so please don't change the subject. The Baltimore Sun ran an article about Ray Lewis' free agency and they mention a rumor that the Cowboys are interested in Lewis:

Ravens Insider: Cowboys interested in Ravens' Lewis? - The inside scoop and analysis on the team from The Baltimore Sun's Ravens columnist and Ravens beat writer. - baltimoresun.com

This will be interesting to see develop. I think that Ray Lewis IS the Baltimore Ravens and it will be interesting to see what Baltimore and Lewis will do.

Guess Jones isn't happy with Zack Thomas.

This makes me laugh:

"Dallas owner Jerry Jones believes his team is in the serious hunt for a Super Bowl title next season, and that Lewis could help solve some of the team's problems inside the locker room."

Didn't he seriously believe his team was going to make the playoffs this season? And someone should tell Jones that he is the main reason there are problems inside the locker room (bringing in head cases and a soft coach).

Re: Ray Lewis and Free Agency

I wouldn't want to see this, not so much because of fear of Lewis actually bringing some leadership & accountability to the pokes, rather I just wouldn't want to see him leave the team he's forged an identity with.

If they actually signed him, it would be boom or bust. The trade for R. Williams last year was kind of desparate, and you could say the same thing about this (if it happens). They would have to let some of their current fa's go I would think, Canty in particular

Re: Ray Lewis and Free Agency

The link isn't working for me right now but there is something to the same effect in the Dallas papers. I saw it yesterday and the Dallas media was talking about ZT as if Dallas cutting him was imminent.

This is the link to the main Ravens Insider page, hopefully this works:

Re: Ray Lewis and Free Agency

I like Lewis but he's clearly not the same player he once was. They can have him.

Re: Ray Lewis and Free Agency

Maybe TO can show Ray how to do his pre game contortions right, like he did a few years ago.

Re: Ray Lewis and Free Agency

I seem to be having trouble getting to and around the internet today. None of the posted links work for me. Is their something going on that would flood the web with traffic??? <sarcasm font off>

Re: Ray Lewis and Free Agency

I hope that the Cowboys are strong next year so it will be all that better when we beat them next year. I think TO and Ray Lewis wouldn't mesh. You think the locker room is bad now, add someone who isn't a, "I love me some me" kind of player and see what happens.

I hope Danny Boy is taking a real long hard look at how Jerry Jones handles than team and learns his lesson once and for all. I think he has shown signs of letting go but we'll see.

Re: Ray Lewis and Free Agency

WE already have a great LB in Fletcher, he's no Lewis but we need to add youth not old age!! IDK why Dallas wants him and why Baltimore would let the best player in their short history leave.

Re: Ray Lewis and Free Agency

London Fletcher is that heart of this defense an still playing extremely well.

The Ravens will only let Ray Lewis go if they think he isn't worth the money anymore. I hope he goes to Dallas and adds to their cap problems.

Re: Ray Lewis and Free Agency

Wow. That team is such a circus.

One thing I didn't know that this article points out is that Romo is a bit of a diva himself. Consistently poor practice habits, taking criticism personally...

Also, it sounds like the whole Jason Garrett phenomenon from last offseason was kind of overblown. The guy went 0-3 in head coaching interviews the past few weeks, their offense struggled much more this year than last, and it sounds like his relationship with Romo and TO is pretty strained. All the defensive players lost respect for Brian Stewart, and on and on and on.

This is great!! I bookmarked this article so I can read it whenever I'm in a bad mood.
