I'm guessing Ray Lewis didn't expect to be five days into free agency and still without a team. Surely the Cowboys, a club in need of a locker room leader, would throw millions at Lewis to lure him to Dallas. Or even more likely: new Jets head coach -- and former Ravens' defensive coordinator -- Rex Ryan would bring the cornerstone of those suffocating Baltimore defenses north to New York, whatever the cost.
A month ago, both scenarios seemed eminently plausible. Now, after the Jets signed former Ray-Ray teammate Bart Scott to a six-year, $48 million deal, and the Cowboys opted to go with low-keyKeith Brooking, Lewis' options have been reduced to ... well, the Ravens. A team he allegedly declared dead to him on Friday morning only to change his mind when it became clear that nobody else was interested in services.
