Mike Preston, of the Baltimore Sun, reports Baltimore Ravens LB Ray Lewis would like a new contract, despite the fact his current deal has four years remaining on it. Team and league officials have indicated Lewis wants a new deal with a $50 million signing bonus. Lewis seems like he is prepared to yield some of the power he has held through the years, a source of contention in the locker room last season. There had been some talk Lewis was trying to collude with TE Todd Heap and S Ed Reed for all three to hold out to increase their leverage. "Last offseason I trained with Ed Reed, but this year I'm on my own," said Lewis. "Those rumors are ridiculous. Ed Reed has his own agent to advise him, not me." "This year, I'm just going to play football. I don't want to be a GM; I don't want to be a coach. I'm going to be a player again, and end up being the Most Valuable Player, not just on defense, but for the entire league," Lewis added. Right now it appears the team has no desire to re-do his contract.
Damn I hate the RATBIRDS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
