well, he is making commercials now and everything (/sarky
Is Drew Rosenhaus Ray Lewis' agent? The old expression "a deal's a deal" seems to have no meaning to that guy.
I don't like Rome at all. However, he's right about Lewis.
Ray Lewis needs to perform under his existing contract. If he does not, he should not be paid a dime and not other team should be allowed to sign him.
Because Ray Ray knows that the 46 Defense wont run without him.
If he signs a 20 year contract, it would have a minimal effect... LOL!
Didn't "Crissy" Everett knock Rome on his butt?
Rome better be careful what he says. Lewis may stab him.
Ray Lewis is a good player, but he's also a product of media hype. He's been exposed in big games by good coaches and teams. The money he is asking for should be reserved for those great players that elevate themselves and their teammates to a higher level. Lewis doesn't do either.
I'd like to see him sign with Atlanta and take a few more of his criminal teammates with him . He obstructed a murder investigation , and KNEW who stabbed the two victims in Atlanta . I live in the Baltimore area and refuse to attend any game til he's gone . To hell with him ...
Sorry, he is not worth that much of an advance, nobody is. Let him earn it, the 'old fashioned' way.
$50 million dollars?!
No player is worth that much...except for Brett Favre.
OK, OK, easy on me please.
Seriously, the Ravens need to tell him NO! right away and clear away any misconception that Lewis' agent may have about re-negotiating.
When Lewis' contract expires, then (and not 'til then), they can hold some serious negotiations about a new contract.
if Lewis thinks he's worth that much, a heavily incentive-laden contract is one way to go. The more sacks, tackles, fumble recoveries, etc...the more he gets paid.
He should be behind bars rather than playing linebacker.
Will the new contract have a murder clause? < /sarcasm>
I thought he wanted another SB ring. If the Ravens give him that kind of money he can forget playing for another title.
My favorite time watching Ray Ray play was against my Chiefs last year on MNF.
They miked him up, expecting to hear him dominate with some mighty hits.
Instead, all we heard was Ray Ray crying "It's not possible! It's not possible!"
Watch Ray Ray being bulldozed by Brian Waters.
Watch Ray Ray being annihilated by Will Shields as Priest Holmes steps into the end zone.
Watch Ray Ray being obliterated by Tony Richardson as Priest Holmes dances by for a big gain.
Ray Ray spent the game on his butt. Crying into the mike.
He'll be the A-Rod of football.
He's already gotten the Super Bowl MVP, and he stabbed somebody in the offseason preceding that Super Bowl. Why not.
I'll take my Tedi Bruschi any day. R. Lewis is a punk, and I wouldn't want him on my TEAM for $50, let alone $50 mil. That being said, the Ravens should pay him, so he can screw up the team for the next decade.
