Ravens | J. Lewis not a lock to be tagged

Tue, 7 Feb 2006 19:32:44 -0800

Jamison Hensley, of the Baltimore Sun, reports Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome suggested Tuesday, Feb. 7, that it is not a certainty RB Jamal Lewis will be given the team's franchise tag. The Ravens have 15 days before an NFL-mandated deadline (Feb. 23) that will force them to either place the tag on their all-time leading rusher or let him become an unrestricted free agent. If they franchise him, they will have to give him a one-year, $6 million tender offer. Asked if a decision has been made on Lewis, Newsome said, "Not really." Asked if the Ravens would let Lewis become a free agent, Newsome said, "It could possibly be that." It appears the only guarantee is Lewis won't be receiving a new long-term deal from the Ravens before free agency begins March 3
