Lewis Turns 30 – Can He Still Be That Feature Back the Browns Need?

Jamal Lewis just celebrated a birthday, and now that he’s 30, there’s word about how good he can be as he hits that age when most backs start to take a down trend. The PD has a story on Lewis’ B-Day today:

The big 3-1 hit the big 3-0 on Wednesday. Contrary to perception, Jamal Lewis did not limp off the field after coach Eric Mangini’s final practice of training camp needing the assistance of a walker, cane or crutches. Lewis took the milestone birthday in stride. He laughed heartily as Braylon Edwards joked about Lewis’ career highlights “in the ’70s.” “It’s what everybody’s been talking about,” Lewis said of turning 30. “Now I’m actually 30, not 29 or 28. And I still feel like I did yesterday.” Tired of answering questions about it? No doubt. “I’ve been doing it five years,” he said. “Now the day is here and I’m still kicking, running, competing and trying to do my job. This is one of my goals — to be able to play 10 years in the league. And here I am.”

    Riggins, Walker, Sanders and Smith are just four prominent examples of RBs who rushed for more than 1000 yards at 30+ years. There are many others. With Harrison, Davis and Vickers, we are in a position to use Jamal more smartly this year and get the most out of him. If he stays healthy, I think that Lewis can rush for close to 1000 yards again.

    Possible. I like Jamal a lot. But history is against him. Some pretty good horses before him fell off dramatically at this point in their careers. But, if anyone can do it, I think he is the guy. I certainly hope so.
