Lewis Open To Change
Only a few weeks ago we talked about the Dallas Cowboys having interest in linebacker Ray Lewis. Well guess what the Cowboys aren’t the only ones interested in a union between the two. The Dallas Morning News is reporting that Lewis is interested in joining the team. Yea, what a surprise right Ray Lewis is interested in the Cowboys.
“I see Dallas as a great opportunity,” Lewis said on the NFL Network. “It’s always been America’s Team. It’s just a great place to play football.”
The report says that Lewis and Terrell Owens have talked in the past about being teammates. If that’s the case the Cowboys have an interesting dilemma on their hands. There’s so much speculation that TO won’t be a Cowboy next season, but if Lewis agrees to join the team wouldn’t you have to keep his best buddy? Now I don’t really think TO would be a deal sealer for Lewis but it could play a role.
“I can definitely play with T.O,” Lewis told the Baltimore Sun. “I think T.O. is a great, great person. I just love him. I love his work ethic. I love everything about him. So, playing with T.O. is easy.”
The real question now thou is this. Do the Cowboys want Lewis? Owner Jerry Jones has said the team doesn’t plan on being players in free agency. Surrrre, who really believes this? I know I don’t. Lewis is a game changer and a locker room presence if Jones can squeeze him under the cap, I can guarantee he’ll try.
Unfortunately for the Baltimore Ravens there will be no home discount. So for you Baltimore fans you better hope Jones decides to stay out of free agency.
“I don’t play less,” Lewis told the NFL Network. “If you don’t play less, you don’t take less. That’s just life.”
