This is from the Batlimore Sun:

Ray's free-agent dance with Cowboys



INDIANAPOLIS -- If the transcript is accurate and Cowboys' DeMarcus Ware is to be believed, Ray Lewis has been plotting his escape from Baltimore for awhile. In an interview with nfl.fanhouse.com, Ware said he has talked often with Lewis about becoming teammates in Dallas.

Ware said Lewis approached him after the Ravens' game in Dallas in December and every day at the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, asking for Jerry Jones' phone number and Ware's help in getting to Texas.

Ware said he believed Lewis was "genuine" in his interest to join the Cowboys.

"He's a leader," Ware told the Web site. "I think it would be great for him to come here. I wouldn't have a problem with it."

Ware, the NFL's sack leader this season with 20, is entering the final year of his rookie contract. He's expected to land the biggest contract in Cowboys' history and become the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL if negotiations go well.

Lewis will become a free agent for the first time in his 13-year career on Friday. Ozzie Newsome, the Ravens' general manager, said yesterday that he was optimistic he could keep Lewis.

From the Ware transcript, it appears Lewis is infatuated with playing for the Cowboys, and wearing the blue star on their helmet. It's unlikely he will receive the same contract offer from the Cowboys that he will from the Ravens. Newsome said he thought the decision would come down to money.

We'll see.

Veteran NFL and Ravens writer Ken Murray is covering the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis for The Baltimore Sun. He will keep you updated on developments daily.

Part of me wishes this overrated windbag would retire, another part wishes he would take the Ravens to  the cleaners with a ridiculous contract.

Seriously, there's never been a more inflated player in the league than this guy. He's good, don't get me wrong, but every talking head in football scrambles to verbally fellate him with the OMG GREATEST EVAR~! bullshit.  Guy's never had more than 5 sacks in a season, and just because he was the captain on a team that won a Super Bowl with defense, he's looked at as something much more than he is.

Brandon Jacobs>Ray Lewis.

Lewis is Jacobs' bitch.

Bring him to Dallas.  Jacobs will love it.

Just a hunch he is playing this game (might go to Dallas) to get a better offer from the Ravens.

he may be overrated now, but back in the late 90's there during their Superbowl run, I've NEVER seen a defensive player be all over the field on EVERY play like Lewis was. No matter what it was, a rushing play, a passing play, he was there at the end of all of them, making the tackle..

He may be slowing down with old age, but Lewis is still a stud.

There was a 2 maybe 3 year period where he was probably the best player in football, but he was never at the level of All Time Great that gets lavished on him.

He's basically the defensive equivalent to Joe Namath.

he's a stud when he has a defensive line protecting him from blockers, just like practically every other middle linebacker in NFL history.

He's still Jacobs' bitch.

I'd love to watch big Brandon run over him a bunch more twice per season.

He's a definite HOF'er if there ever was one, but he's most likely, at minimum, an accessory to murder and a fucking loudmouth.  I don't like him.

He's using us as leverage. Baltimore will pay him more money to stay.
