    Ray Lewis a Cowboy?

    Word around the NFL is that the Dallas Cowboys are very interested in obtaining Baltimore Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis if he becomes a free agent. The speculation is that the Cowboys are willing to give Lewis a three-year deal worth between $27 and $30 million, with $25 million guaranteed.

    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Re: Ray Lewis a Cowboy?

    IF there is any validity to this...it would seem based on the speculated contract size, Jerry is hedging 2010 will be an uncapped year.

    Lots of cash to give for a guy of that age.

    Re: Ray Lewis a Cowboy?

    Ray Lewis is/was dominant...I never have rooted for him but judged solely on his on-field abilities...he is/was incredible! But...he does seem to have a big ego which begs the question "how on earth could the Cowboy's locker room have any room left with the egos they have on that team already"???

    Re: Ray Lewis a Cowboy?

    It's an interesting idea. He seemed to have been declining a bit, but he did have a really nice year. I would assume Jerry is looking for him more as someone to be a uniting vocal leader rather than the divisive one they have now.

    They're moving into a new stadium. Probably has a bigger locker room.

    Re: Ray Lewis a Cowboy?

    I love Ray I think he is a great player, but I have to wonder if this is just Jerry giving too much for a past their prime superstar. First it was Deion, then TO, then Roy Williams(at least he is still young). He should take a lesson from the way Jimmy built the Super Bowl winning dynasty of the early 90's. Giving up Herschel and utilizing draft picks to build a team instead of giving them away for modern day Herschel types.

    Just my opinion. What do you think?

    The early 90's was a different era. Salary cap didn't come into effect until 1994.

    He may have held on to Deion and now TO for too long, but I don't think either were past their prime when they started with the Cowboys.

    Too bad Pac Man is gone, because with Ray Lewis together with him on the team they could have really killed some people...

    Re: Ray Lewis a Cowboy?

    I do not like Ray Lewis, at all. But if I had to choose one LB to be on my team from strictly an on the field aspect it would be him. The guy is a leader no doubt, not many people can lead a defense like him.

    Re: Ray Lewis a Cowboy?

    Correct me if I am wrong but weren't there rumors of the Cowboys interest in Ray Lewis a few years back as well?

    I agree, but I think to solidify your case you need to include Drew Bledsoe and Eddie George in the list.
