Lewis was one of several players released as teams maneuvered to find salary-cap space before the free-agent period starts Friday. However, the Ravens said they are still attempting to re-sign Lewis. Among the other name players cut were Cincinnati linebacker Brian Simmons; Minnesota quarterback Brad Johnson; and wide receiver Eric Moulds, who played for Houston last season after 10years with Buffalo.
