    The move was expected because of Lewis' roster bonus, and only means that the two sides weren't able to come to an agreement on a restructured contract. Lewis was also cut last year and returned to Baltimore after testing free agency. The same scenario could happen again, but the Ravens should look to upgrade before settling again on Lewis, who is a part-timer at best at this point.

    I'm sure he will not be out there very long.

    Maybe a good fit here...likely a split time RB and he is a decent sized back,I would give it a shot.

    I'd be happy to see him here, but I suspect he'll have a lot of suitors.

    I don't care about his rap. It was a weird one. Not like a Bungle. He is young and would be a good compliment to Maroney. It all depends on what they do with Dillon and what Lewis would sign for.

    I don't know if I would go too overboard about his criminal record. Lewis basically put his friend in touch with a drug dealer. That was his crime. Yes, it is illegal and wrong. It happened in college and he hasn't been in trouble since. But is no worse than Corey Dillon did in high school.

    I am not high on taking bad characters in general and am not sure I would want Lewis, but what he did is no worse than what many of the other players people want us to get has done.

    Bad seed and, even though he is still relatively young, he appeared to be washed up last year. Only guy I saw running slower was our own Corey Dillon.

    No, and I don't see why people want him. He looked horrible last year. I'd rather re-sign Patrick Pass. Well, sort of ... Okay, not Pass. But not Jamal Lewis, either.

    I'm not saying he's junk, I'd sign him for short money....kinda like what we gave to Smith a few years ago.

    Yep. He had something like 400 carries that year, and I think it just totally broke him down. There is a history of that happening with RBs who get that much of a workload in one season. Anyone remember Jamal Anderson from Atlanta?

    And I can only assume that the people clamoring for him here didn't actually watch him play at all last season.

    Bob Kraft to Billy B. - My only rule is, no "thugs." Jamal would have to prove he's been going to Sunday school to get past this one...
