Mike Anderson - fullback???

Postby stomperrob » Fri Aug 04, 2006 2:15 pm

Sounds like the Ravens are thinking about playing Anderson at FB so they would have him and Lewis together in the same backfield for a big 1-2 punch. Hmm - sounds interesting.

not a bad idea at all. anderson used to play fullback, so it would be like having 2 running backs in the backfield at the same time while still having a good fullback.

Not a very surprising move after they dumped their All Pro fullback Ricard.

I'll find a link, but word out of Ravens camp is that Musa Smith is working towards being Jamal's backup at tailback.

I know this is kind of off-topic, but does anyone here have a link to Jamal Lewis giving a statement that he didn't play 100% last year due to a contract dispute?

I was reading my SportingNews magazine yesterday, and the author of the article said that Jamal Lewis lost his unofficial "team leader" status when he admitted to playing at less than full speed last season because of his contract status.

On another sidenote, Jamal Lewis' current contract is HEAVILY incentive based and easily voidable after 1 year.

That's what they should do. That would be perfect for Lewis owners

This was the closest I could dig up - says he was unhappy about his contract and unhappy about being forced to share the load with Taylor, but doesn't say he gave less than 100%.
