    Ravens RB Jamal Lewis Signs with Browns

    For two years, the Baltimore Ravens have wondered about Jamal Lewis' breakaway speed. They no longer have to wonder.


    Lewis

    Lewis, the franchise's all-time leading rusher, broke away from the Ravens and agreed to a deal with the rival Cleveland Browns on Wednesday. Terms were not disclosed, but Lewis reached the agreement Wednesday night after a visit to Cleveland.

    The Ravens released Lewis to clear salary cap room. Both sides kept in touch with the hopes of reuniting. But Lewis sensed his job might not be there. The Ravens have been interested in acquiring Bills halfback Willis McGahee in a trade.

    Lewis, 27, decided not to wait and took Cleveland's offer. He rushed for 2,066 yards in 2003 but has struggled during the past three years. Last year, he played the entire season with a bone spur problem. He recently had surgery to remove the spurs.

    The 5-foot-11, 245-pound back is one of the league's most powerful runners. He was the Ravens' first-round draft choice in 2000.

    It was a one year deal and Lewis really doesn't have much left in the tank. I don't think this changes the top of their board at all. They could draft Peterson and use him in a committee approach with Lewis until he's ready to take over.

    They could have Peterson sit behind him and learn while also contributing a bit. It definitely doesnt rule out drafting Peterson, especially since its a one year deal. However, it does give them an oppurtunity to look at other positions

    Adarian Peterson is the best player in this years draft. I know Oakland just resigned Jordan, but if the faiders should take Peterson.
