Ray Lewis Seeing Stars? Cowboy Stars To Be Exact.
Total Pro Sports – One of the most highly touted linebackers in this years NFL free agency crop says he has always dreamed of playing for the Dallas Cowboys. At least that is the way present Cowboy linebacker Demarcus Ware is putting it:
“When we played Ray Lewis and Baltimore at the end of the season, he came over and pointed to my helmet. He said: ‘I want to wear this star on my helmet. That’s my dream … that’s my dream. When we got to the Pro Bowl, he did it again. He came at me every day. He’s trying to get down where the star is. He told me he needed me to get him [owner] Jerry Jones’ phone number for him. I just busted out laughing.”
With free agency set to start on Friday, it will be interesting to see how this develops. Some believe that Lewis, who has never been a free agent in his 13 year career, is using the Cowboys as leverage to up his price with the Ravens, but Ware does not believe that is the case:
“Believe me, he is genuine. He talked to me two years ago about it. He calls me about once a week and talks about it then. I even said: ‘Hey, Ray, I’m tired about talking about this. You need to find Jerry Jones’ number and fly out there and talk to him.'”
Another interesting fact to consider is just how would the Cowboys be able to afford him. They are already close to the salary cap and intend on signing Ware to a high priced extension. With that being said, it will still be interesting to see just what happens to the man many consider to still be one of the best linebackers out there.
This is not the only storyline with free agency approaching. Other interesting reports include T.J.Houshmandzadeh possibly being pursued by the Eagles, the Cards close to resigning Warner, and Jeff Saturday testing the market.
