Free agency hasn’t even started yet, and already, local columnists and bloggers at the Dallas Morning News and New York Post are making their pitches for potential free-agent LB Ray Lewis. And really, who wouldn’t want Lewis? He would immediately bring stability to the Cowboys and Jets.
But not so fast. Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti told the Baltimore Sun that he hopes to lock Lewis into a long-term deal.
- “I’ve been hopeful forever that we’re going to work [out] a deal,” Bisciotti said. “Last year, I said I don’t think that other people are going to value Ray Lewis higher than we do. He’s showing at 33 that he’s capable of playing like a 28-year-old. I’ve got my wife on budget already to try to save some money so we can sign him.”
