    The Ray Lewis Saga Continues

    It's Wednesday, just about 28 hours until free agency begins tomorrow night, and the rumors are soaring across the news vine as though they were powered by a jet pack. Ray Lewis seems to be at the top of the list as far as Dallas is concerned, and no I don't mean that Dallas is considering it, though they certainly may be.

    The latest is from FanNation.com and it seems to add fuel to the fire. Apparently Ravens' owner Steve Bisciotti is irritated with Lewis for not showing loyalty to the team in Hawaii. That is where Lewis made it known that he'd like to play for either the Jets or Cowboys.

    I'm still of the mind that Lewis won't be a huge factor in Dallas and the reasons are clear, this teams' biggest problem is on , and he'll be brought in as another player, not the commander of the vessel. A point worth debating is whether or not he could control Terrell Owens and inspire Tony Romo to take charge, but the point remains that it wouldn't be his job to do either.

    After the stories came out about DeMarcus Ware and Ray Lewis sharing some not-so-subtle remarks about Lewis wanting to be a Cowboy, it seems this idea is now going wholesale to the public.

    The have roughly $12 million in available cap space, and have options to add more by cutting players like Brad Johnson and Roy Williams, but the bulk of it is expected to go to Ware in the form of a new contract, a contract that is expected to be near the top in the books for a defensive player.

    Still, makes you wonder what could be. Bart Scott looks to be real close to a new deal in Baltimore, and he had already taken over some duties from Lewis last year. Are the Ravens getting ready to move on without Lewis?

    It seems logical to assume they'd only do that if Ray was asking too much to stay, and if so that same asking price wouldn't translate well to the Cowboys. But would he take a lower figure to fulfill his dream of being a Dallas Cowboy?

    Then again, maybe the speculation that Bisciotti is irritated with Lewis is just more fanfare instigated by Lewis and/or his agent to drive his price up, Seems kind of an odd way to do it though.

    Given that the rumors and talks of him wanting to come to Dallas have helped Lewis' worth so far, how much can you take away from that if he does start negotiations with the Cowboys?

    We might very well know the answers come Friday afternoon.

    As much as Ray would being to the table leadership-wise, I don’t think we need to bring in any more aging vets. Let’s fill whatever holes are open via the draft.

    Yeah, I can’t make up my mind about this one. I know the reasons for and against bringing him in, but I just can’t let go of the possibilities for the realities of the deal.

    I’m leaning to if we can get him for the right number then it’ll be good, won’t be any wworse than having Thomas here.

    Craig

    Yeah, if we can get him for maybe a 1-2 year deal at an average salary, then I might be for it. Just, PLEASE, no more long term deals like we did with Flo or Newman. It tends to cause the older players to sense the security and stop trying near as hard.

    I wouldn’t argue that. I’m hoping it was a team slack off though rather than being led by the vets with high figured, lengthy contracts, because only one of those can change this year.
