I can't deny that Lewis hasn't been stellar lately, but it wasn't so long ago that he was tearing it up. Doesn't he hold like the single game rush record or something? (That was a legitimate question, BTW). Cleveland signed him to a low risk contract. He gets 3.5 mil straight up with incentives to be earned if he can deliver. The way I see it, there isn't an insane amount of expectation there. Therefore, I don't see him as being very overrated (or Cleveland just realizes they are gonna get burned every time).

Edge, on the other hand, made 9 mil last year. Edge is expected to be a long term solution in Arizona, and he really isn't showing me the behavior a franchise RB should have toward his team.

Salary- 9 million
Media- Coming and going in practice and slamming his OLine....
Achievements- Mediocre

I can, however, accept Lewis being chosen for this overrated team.
Good points....and add to that....his replacement by a rookie RB , only gave the Colts a Superbowl....Which has to make you scratch your head and ask if he wasnt as much a part of the "system" as Addai was...... he can thank the Colts OC for stretching the defense and padding his numbers.
