Jamal Lewis

Despite rumors that RB Jamal Lewis might not make the final 53-man roster in CLE, he remains a member of the team after final cuts have been made.

But I think this was more of a financial-motivated move than a move based on his skill or expected contribution. CLE paid Lewis his roster bonus earlier this season, which I believe made his $3M salary this year guaranteed. So cutting him would have been costly.

So, although the old, tippy-toe running, coke-trafficking RB remains on the roster, I do expect rookie RB James Davis to get some work and eventually take over the majority of the carries. Keep him on your roster if you have him, or at least keep him on your radar.
