Sources close to Ray Lewis tell Adam Schefter that Lewis "will not return" to Baltimore and that his career with the team is over.

This could be a negotiating ploy or emotions getting the best of Lewis. Don't assume he's gone. The Ravens offered Lewis $17 million guaranteed Thursday, a very good offer, but he's upset with how negotiations have gone. We highly doubt he'll get a better deal elsewhere. With Dallas and New York apparently not interested yet, there are no obvious suitors. Feb. 27 - 9:53 am et

Could you imagine Aaron Curry and DJ learning from Ray Lewis and Derrick Brooks for a couple of years?

With all past issues aside, I would love to have Ray Lewis on this team.

Players are such fuqin babies these days. Things don't go exactly how they want, and they throw a fit.

"That's it, I'm leaving..*sniff sniff*

I wouldn't want this convict on my team no matter how good he is on a football field.

Romanowski didn't do anything illegal like get invloved in double murder and then obstruct justice. So now that you've gotten that all out of your system, he should however be in jail for assaulting and battering that kid while he was an Oakland Raider.

I think Ray Lewis would be an absolute force for our team. He'd bring DJ straight into stardom.

He wasn't let go when he should have been.

Broncos emerge as candidate for LewisRay Lewis | Ravens | Interested: Broncos? Cowboys? Jets?
While the Baltimore Ravens have feverishly tried to retain linebacker Ray Lewis over the last few weeks, his name has been linked in various sources to both the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys. Amid the smoldering chaos as the league has finally entered the opening day of free agency, a darkhorse candidate out west has emerged according to the Baltimore Sun: the Denver Broncos.
Lewis and nascent Broncos defensive coordinator Mike Nolan worked together when Nolan had the same position with the Ravens, and according to the Sun, the two would meet one-on-one on a weekly basis to work on game-plans. In addition, the Broncos have been cutting dead weight since the promotion of general manager Brian Xanders, and the team is expected to be around $30 million under the salary cap. Lewis would be a solid tackling machine in the middle of the field as well as a vocal leader as the team installs Nolan's schemes.

I'm sure his wife was involved in all of that criminal activity COMPLETELY unbeknownst to Romo himself, right?

Comapred to Ray Lewis it's not even in the same league. Either way it doesn't matter. Bill is no longer in the league.

One thing that worries me about all the vets in KC wanting out is how that affects FA's from signing here. At what point does a shit load of money sway you to come no matter what you are hearing from the media.

There might just be a chance, the "Patriot's Way" seemed to involve signing old, future hall of fame linebackers. Keith Brooking is available now too along with Derrick Brooks, we could have an All-2002 linebacking group!!!!!

In all honesty while Ray Lewis certainly wouldn't be a bad signing, I'd rather spend the cash on someone who isn't 33 like a Channing Crowder.

Also, I think we should take a look at Darryl Blackstock. The guy was a heck of a player on the outside in the 3-4 at Virginia. He hasn't done much in the league but he's young and still has some potential. I think he'd be a great guy that the Chiefs could get on the cheap.

Crowder re signed with Miami. I wanted to make a run at him myself.

No 36 year old linebacker whose production is tied directly to Haloti Ngata deserves rice krispies instead of rat shit for breakfast, let alone 17 million guaranteed.

Fuck Ray Lewis.

Thank you. Took awhile, but the obvious came to light.

I hope he goes to Denver for 17 million so he can get his ass ran over all season with noone up front to cover for him.

Perhaps I'm overestimating his intelligence, but I don't think Ray is dumb enough to go somewhere where there isn't a dominant NT. He gets blocked out of plays waaaaaay too easily these days.

If he plays behind some crappy D-line somewhere, every week is going to give him flashbacks of the MNF game against us in '04.

Lewis can still ball. There is no doubt about it. I think you underestimate how good your o-line was then.

Oh, it was a great line then.

What I'm saying is that Lewis has slowed to the point where, if there's not a badass like Ngata in front of him to keep blockers away, his games are going to resemble that MNF effort. In 2004 it took a great offensive line to make Lewis that ineffective. Today, an offensive a line not nearly as good could do it.

Lewis is a fine player when he's got Ngata and Suggs and these guys around him. But bring him to KC or Denver or somewhere with nobody around him on D and he'll start showing his age real quick. And I bet he ends up staying with Baltimore (unless they don't want him) 'cause I think he's smart enough to know this.

But you are higher on the Lewis of today than I am, I take it.
