What? You thought the NFL threads would die? Har! Lapdogs, all of you!
Baltimore, a source close to several of their players said, was more likely to sign and retain Ray Lewis and let fellow linebacker Bart Scott walk. One of those two linebackers entered Thursday evening highly likely to go to the Jets, and the source said that appeared to be Scott. Retaining Lewis would be a leadership coup for the Ravens, but the deals on both men are not done. The source also cautioned that the situation could change in Friday negotiations, though he said it's likely, in particular, that Scott will end up in the Big Apple. If the Jets do sign Scott, expect a deal for five or six years, at about $8 million per season.
I find that interesting, given that Scott is younger. I'm just glad the Cowboys won't be going after Lewis. I love Ray. But that wouldn't have ended well.
UPDATE: Link fixt. And Haynesworth goes to the Skins.
