The Browns intend to bring running back Jamal Lewis back next season, a source said Friday.

Lewis, with 1,176 rushing yards and nine touchdowns, is on pace for his fourth-highest career rushing total of 1,260 yards despite missing one full game and lasting only one play of another before leaving with a foot injury.

Lewis' one-year contract, which increased from $3.5 million to $5 million with incentives, is up after this season. He will be an unrestricted free agent in March.

"[Browns General Manager] Phil Savage and this organization, they'll talk to my agent, and if there's anything, they'll talk to me," said Lewis. "So that's it."

Lewis' agent, Mitch Frankel, said Friday that talks regarding a contract extension have not begun. But the Browns will address it after the season, the source said.

Lewis, who's rushed for 100 yards or more in three of his past five games - and 92 yards on two other occasions over the past six games - has said he would love to return.

"We definitely have something to build on," he said.

The Browns also plan to bring back quarterback Derek Anderson, who will be a restricted free agent, the source said. The Browns also will wait until after the season to address his contract. ESPN's Chris Mortensen recently reported the Browns intend to sign Anderson to a long-term deal.

That is good news. i actually expected the Browns to get a QB in the draft, because I thought Anderson was going. They may still sign a QB yet....
