      How awesome would that be. We could use his leadership. But they wont sign him, he'll cost too much.

        The Baltimore Sun is reporting that exact thing....I am not saying it is true but very often when these things are reported it is for a reason.....I would finally have a reason to be optimistic.....

          I think it's pure speculation. Just because he knows the DC. But Denver will never pay one player 10 million a year (I heard that is what he's looking for) with so many holes to fill and only 30 million to spend.

            Baltimore Sun is the original posters source, Rotoworld has the same thing on their page too.

                Vilma was run out of New York because he wasn't suited to play the 3-4 that Mangini installed. He's a pure 4-3 MLB and doesn't fit with Nolan's scheme.

                  While Ray Lewis' skill set is most definetly diminishing, his leadership on this D that lacks pride would be a huge asset. Unfortunately, that leadership comes with a huge price tag. We're also in the running for Bart Scott, but he's supposedly on his way to meet with the Jets, so I don't see him leaving there without signing (Rex Ryan ties etc.). If they don't want to pay Ray the big money contract for a pretty average player with great leadership skills, Jasper Brinkley (the Draft) is another BIG LB that can play the run, and is gradually working himself into a 3-down ILB again after his knee injury, and he's known for being a natural leader (went to Georgia Military College before transferring to South Carolina). He could very easily become the general (no pun intended, okay sort of), and he could be had in the 3rd round. Either way, with all three of these guys, they would def. bring something different, but something needed, to this D.

                    I have not seen or read anything from our camp that we are interested in Ray or Scott. This is just a speculation on behalf of a local Baltimore paper.

                    R Ayers - B Cofield - A Haynesworth - CJ ohnson
                    J Anderson - J Beason - DJ Williams
                    R Bailey - P Amukamara - R Hill - A Goodman

                      Ray is starting to show his age, they broke down some film last night on NFL Live that was eye opening. The things Ray use to excell in- getting off blocks, chasing down the ballcarrier, and locking down the middle have definitely deminished. He's 34, and reportedly wants $10 million a season? That's a lot of money for half the player he used to be! I WILL NOT discount his leadership and motivational ability and what it brings to a team but- not for that kind of jack....

                        Be that as it may, chances are we are interested in Ray Lewis. He fills a need, both as a player and a leader, and he's familiar with Nolan's D. We should be very interested.

                          I read an article this morning that said the Broncos will probabally go for a LB in the Draft rather than going for Lewis. So IDK who to believe lol

                            Ray Lewis offers one thing this defense sorely needs, Leadership, the problem is this team offers zero of one thing Lewis sorely needs.......DLman that can keep him clean.......

                              I would be STUNNED if they signed Lewis........he wants big money and we cant tie up some of our cap on a 34 year old Linebacker on the decline.

                              NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOO
