After learning about a rumor from a friend, I rushed over to the Baltimore Sun‘s website and sure enough, front and center, the story read:
Word around the NFL is that the Dallas Cowboys are very interested in obtaining Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis if he becomes a free agent. The speculation is that the Cowboys are willing to give Lewis a three-year deal worth between $27 and $30 million, with $25 million guaranteed.
Dallas owner Jerry Jones believes his team is in the serious hunt for a Super Bowl title next season, and that Lewis could help solve some of the team’s problems inside the locker room.
Never say never. Jerry Jones could be on to something. Ray Lewis is undeniably a leader on the field and in the clubhouse. The Cowboys need an outspoken leader who can pull the team together and get them fired up.
Makes perfect sense to me.
