OK, I made sure this wasn't posted :)

I think this deal is a thank you to Ray Lewis from Art Modell, because he will have to engage some blockers this year more than any of his previous years. I just don't think he will dominate this year like he has in the past. No Goose or Adams. No Marvin Lewis scheme. He has Mike Nolan if I'm not mistaken and he is a very over rated Defensive Coordinator. It will be interesting watching Baltimore this year.

Ray Lewis should be awesome no matter what. But the defense as a whole will suffer w/o some of the names you mentioned. Yeah, this is basically a reward for years of awesome play, but at $7 million per year, it's not a salary cap drain considering Lewis is an elite player. It's the signing bonus that's surprisingly huge

he is arguably (but imo) the best defensive player in the game right now, and its nice to see some defensive guys making some decent money.

With that kind of deal he should be slaughtering his opponents with ease.

What?!? O.J. Simpson wasn't available?

Wonder what color pen he used to sign?

I agree. I think Lewis is good, but not dominate. Not without other great players around him.

I think this will be another case of a guy getting monster money and then not performing. Not his fault though, because imho, he is overrated.
