How Much Exactly Should the Ravens Throw at Lewis?

There is a lot of talk about how much money the Ravens should hand over to linebacker Ray Lewis, who they for sure want back in 2009. Today’s Baltimore Sun throws it out there that they should give them $18 million. Here’s the report:

The Ravens should give Ray Lewis, 33, a three-year contract worth $18 million. There will be no signing bonus, but every year that Lewis shows up for training camp on time, the $6 million salary becomes guaranteed, even if there is a players’ strike. If Lewis can’t play the final year of the contract, the Ravens still have to pay him the $6 million as a consultant or adviser. It’s a fair and logical deal, with a possible great farewell present for the aging superstar.
