Regarding Jamal Lewis' financial straights, I hope he is not allowed to take advantage of the bankruptcy laws ("Lewis bankruptcy offers a peek at former Raven's life," June 10). However, I am not without sympathy for Mr. Lewis, so I offer this advice (at no charge), which is guaranteed to get him out of his predicament: Sell your rings, bling, and other things, then just live within your means. Published reports show that would leave him a mere $4.9 million. If he has trouble living on such a paltry amount, then using nothing more then common sense I will help him develop a plan to keep him debt free.

During our phone conversations, Lewis, the franchise's all-time leading rusher, gave his take on the current Ravens squad, specifically an offense that ranked 15th in total offense a year ago and 12th in scoring offense....

On Monday, a dinosaur walked inside the Under Armour Performance Center and was introduced as the guest of honor at a 3:30 p.m. news conference. Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome spoke of the first time he had spotted it, which seems like eons ago with the futuristic pass attacks of this age blurring memories of when the Ravens outmuscled the NFL while winning Super Bowl XXXV back in 2001 A.D.

Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis, in Baltimore to sign autographs at the National Sports Collectors Convention, said Friday that his arrest earlier this week in Atlanta for child abandonment, a misdemeanor, was caused by a hearing he did not attend. “It was not about an abandonment issue, it was not about a kid issue,” he said. “It was the fact that, honestly, I didn't show up for a hearing to defend myself and everything else. But, like I said in my statement, you know, I've never been a bad father.

S ince the 2000 season, the Ravens have tried to copy the blueprint that led them to the Super Bowl title. But they've never been able to duplicate the running back of that season. Running backs like Jamal Lewis come along only once in a while, and the Ravens have yet to find another runner like Lewis. Few teams do. "It's rare to get that kind of power, speed and size in that kind of a back," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said. "Guys like him, Chuck Muncie, Corey Dillon, John Riggins, they only come along every so often.

The most productive running back in Ravens history is slated to be in purple and black for a long, long time. The Ravens will induct running back Jamal Lewis, the leading rusher in franchise history, into their Ring of Honor before their Week 4 game this season. The induction will take place before the Ravens host the rival Cleveland Browns on Thursday, Sept. 27 -- a primetime game on NFL Network -- at M&T Bank Stadium. “To go into the Ring of Honor, it just shows that I'll always be a Raven,” Lewis said Tuesday afternoon.

FOR THOSE of you rushing to presume Baltimore Ravens running back Jamal Lewis guilty of drug conspiracy charges (and you know who you are), remember two things. The FBI and a confidential informant are involved. You remember the FBI, don't you? That gaggle of incompetents who hounded Atlanta security guard Richard Jewel and investigated him for allegedly planting a bomb and killing two people had egg on their faces when facts revealed Jewel was innocent. Yes, the same FBI whose agents can't tell a Honda Civic from a Pontiac Grand Am (remember the shooting of Joseph Schultz in Anne Arundel County two years ago?

It might have been trash-talking, but Jamal Lewis made good on his promise. The young Baltimore Raven broke the single-day rushing record by running for 295 yards in the 2003 home opener at the stadium newly rechristened for the company that had bought the naming rights, M&T Bank. Today, though, the now retired Lewis and M&T are linked in court rather than on the field. Lewis filed for bankruptcy in Georgia in April, listing $14.5 million in assets and $10.6 million in debts — among them, a more than $350,000 judgment on a defaulted loan from the bank whose name hangs over the Ravens' stadium.

Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis is one of four ex-NFL players who are suing the league over brain injuries that they say have impaired their post-football lives, according to an Associated Press report. Lewis and Dorsey  Levens, Fulton Kuykendall and Ryan Stewart, filed the lawsuit against the National Football League and NFL Properties LLC this week in U.S. District Court in Atlanta, saying the NFL knew as early as the 1920s of the potential for concussions to harm its players but only went public last year.
