Et cetera Lewis survives Browns cut; Steelers let Redman go Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis, who was believed to be in danger of not making the team's opening-week roster, survived the Cleveland Browns' final cuts Saturday. An impressive training camp by rookie James Davis and Lewis' average of just 2.6 yards on 24 carries during the NFL preseason fueled speculation that Lewis, 30, who has eclipsed 10,000 career yards, might be among the players dropped. "Jamal has lot to contribute, and I'm looking forward to seeing him as we go through the season," Eric Mangini, the team's first-year coach, said.

Ryan Mallett has left the Michigan football program, and the quarterback might be reunited at Tennessee with his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Mallett, who many thought would be the team's star quarterback for the next three seasons, played in 11 games as a freshman, filling in for Chad Henne when he was injured. Mallet was 61-for-141 for 892 yards with seven touchdown passes and five interceptions. He might end up with the Volunteers, who are considering hiring former Michigan offensive coordinator Mike DeBord and quarterbacks coach Scott Loeffler.
