Jamal Lewis is calling it quits after this season. There are some people that think he still has gas in his tank, but that remains to be seen. His former teammate and name sake, Ray Lewis, wants Lewis to stick around and keep his career going. Lewis has had one productive game so far this year, vs. Buffalo. Then again, someone had to be productive to get that win. Lewis remains under contract with the Browns till 2010, but that doesn't mean he won't ask to be released like Brett Favre. The only trouble with that is he is a 30 yr old RB and the NFL doesn't look kindly on aging backs.
With this being said, Lewis is talking a lot about the organization, as well as Mangini. Does announcing retirement give you the right to start speaking against your coach? If he takes the advice of his friend and one time teammate and not retire, will he be granted a release or even a trade? If he speaks too much he might not get any of those opportunities. What ever his decision I wish him the best, and he will forever be the Browns killer.
