Ray Lewis a Free Agent Target for Cowboys?

NFLGridironGabSenior Analyst IJanuary 19, 2009

With free agency looming, there are already some rumblings that teams are targeting the players that will help them get over the top next season.

Lifelong Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis has an interesting decision coming his way, as he will be a free agent come March unless the Ravens get something done with him in the meantime.

Rumor has it that if the Ravens can't retain their leader, he may very well be headed to the Dallas Cowboys.

Just one day after the loss in the AFC Title game to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Baltimore Sun is reporting that Lewis may be on the Cowboys' radar as an impact player on defense that could come over,and change the attitude of that unit.

The Sun states the following about Lewis: “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.”

Lewis is getting up there in years, but if the Cowboys can land him it would be a huge deal for a player that played with a lot of heart this past season getting, the Ravens just one step from the Super Bowl.
