He's growing old, he's out of work, but God bless him, Jamal Lewis is keeping at it.
After speaking to a few Cleveland Browns fans, many seem to feel divided about Jamal Lewis' departure from the Dawg Pound.
He was a trusty running back in Cleveland, but did have an inconsistent streak about him that annoyed the living daylights out of most fans.
In his final year with Cleveland, Jamal Lewis finished his regular season account with 500 yards and 0 touchdowns.
Disappointing stats for a top flight running back, but also very telling stats for any team willing to sign him.
Unfortunately for Jamal Lewis, he hasn't done himself many favors. He hasn't shown any interest in any team, and his poor stats in 2009 have left a possible option doubting his ability.
However, perhaps there is the smallest shred of light at the end of the tunnel. For you see, Jamal Lewis is a rough and tough running back, and unfortunately for us fans, the breed of "nitty gritty' type rushers is slowly dying.
Nowadays, teams want fast and extremely athletic rushers who can make a play on any part of the field, leaving ground-and-pound rushers such as Jamal Lewis and Frank Gore in the dark a little.
Fortunately for Jamal though, this could play in his favor. Many teams in the NFL are seeking a second-string rusher that they can use in third down occasions, and with Jamal's experience and knowledge, he is a likely option.
Teams that come to mind are Philadelphia due to the loss of Brian Westbrook and of course the Oakland Raiders.
Wherever Jamal Lewis goes, lets just hope he finds a home. He's an underrated yet lovable guy, and I personally would like to see him treated fairly.
Sitting in a pool of free agency is no way to go out, and after all that Jamal has given the game, he deserves to go out with a bang.
