Default Ray Ray want's out of Bal.

NBCSports.com news services
Updated: 10:37 a.m. ET Feb. 12, 2006

Superstar linebacker Ray Lewis doesn't want to play for the Baltimore Ravens anymore, the Baltimore Sun reported Saturday, citing unnamed sources close to the linebacker.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said Lewis hasn't told the team that, but Newsome did say Lewis had requested to be traded before the 2005 season, the Sun reported. Lewis also met with Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti recently in Florida, Newsome told the Sun.

The Ravens have asked around to gauge interest in Lewis, but no team has offered more than a second-round pick for the linebacker, the newspaper reported, citing unnamed league sources.

Lewis battled injuries all last season, playing in just six games and recording 46 tackles.

Default Re: Ray Ray want's out of Bal.

I posted it in a couple of other threads but supposedly Lewis and Billick weren't on talking terms towards the end of the season and that Ray wanted to redo his contract again and was asking for truck load of cash.

I don't know what's worse........Ray doing his stupid chicken dance on the field or having to listen to him as a commentator/reporter.
I'm still trying to figure out why he was included in the Superbowl Post-game Show??

An orange jump suit would be cool!

He is great! But he is all about himself, I remember last off season, I was sick of him talking about winning an MVP!

this story is one that has been brewing since pre season. the ravens are in trouble with ed reed, not wanting to play 2nd fiddle and coming on a contract year, jamal wanting big bucks, and lewis not wanting to play 2nd fiddle AND make less money than ed reed. ozzie newsome spoke on it and reeds potential holdout before last season on sirius radio (this was the same interview where he said any of the steelers teams were easilly the greatest team of all time). he sternly said that those players are under contract and they will not negotiate with reed until his conract is up and if they had to franchise lewis they would have no problems doing it. (of course this was before j. lewis sucked this season)

word is ray wants to go play with marvin lewis in cincinatti. you know he would love nothing more to push that bengals team over the edge in contending with pittsburgh for the division and potental sb berth. ray ray is all about the rings and his legacy now and you can bet his licking his chops seiing the black and gold with the crown. he wont get no satisfaction in baltimore. they are going nowhere

I bet half that team wants to be away from that egomaniac Billick...

Wasn't he supposed to be an offensive genius???

I'd take Ray Lewis in a heartbeat....money is a different issue. But, I'd love to have him on my team.

Here is the link to the Baltimore Sun story that NBC cited.

Lewis is making $5.5 million next season, has 3 years to go on his current contract, and is on the downside of his career.

Lewis may have one more great season left in him if properly motivated, but I do not know how the Bengals could take Lewis on board and avoid major salary cap problems, especially since it is my recollection that the contracts for the entire Bengals O-line run out simultaneously at the end of 2006.

The Ravens are in a mess.
