Free agency period begins at 11:01 tonight

With the free agency signing period in the NFL opening at 11:01 p.m. Thursday, reports have put the  Washington Redskins as the front-runner to sign Tennessee Titans defensive tackle and unrestricted free agent Albert Haynesworth.

ESPN bloggers are reporting that the Baltimore Ravens are leaning toward a new deal for linebacker Bart Scott, which could mean Ray Lewis won't be re-signed.

But the Cowboys evidently are cool to adding Lewis because of his age and declining skills, which ESPN emphasized this week on NFL Live by showing Lewis' struggle in the game last year against the New York Giants.

Cowboys defensive end Chris Canty is rated as the sixth-best free agent by SI.com in conversations with scouts and game-tape evaluations.

Some reports had the Philadelphia Eagles interested in wide receiver Marvin Harrison, cut this week by the Indianapolis Colts, but Philly.com points out the Eagles are leery of Harrison's age (he'll be 37 next season) and potential legal troubles.

Bengals free agent receiver T.J. Houshmanxzadeh could be an Eagles target.

I agree with Mr. Edens, Ray Lewis brings certain intangibles to the table. But it would be far less costly to hire a real head coach who would bring leadership and discipline.

I don't care if Ray Lewis has declining skills are not. The best talent doesn't always win remember. What he would bring is firery leadership, great work ethic, and discipline to the Cowboys. I would not over pay, but give him a mid level contract that is incentitive laden. If he really wants to be a Cowboy he would accept an offer in that pay range. This defense would look a lot different with him on the team tightening up the heart of the defense.
