Plenty of interest in Dion Lewis

The veteran running back market typically doesn’t include players who draw extensive interest. This year, it could be different.

Patriots running back Dion Lewis is expected to get serious consideration from multiple teams, per a source with knowledge of the situation.

Potentially interested teams include the Jets, Texans, 49ers, Raiders, and Colts. As many as six or seven teams are expected to pursue Lewis.

A fifth-round pick of the Eagles in 2011, he arrived in New England after stints in Philly, Cleveland, and Indy. His best year by far came in 2017, with 896 rushing yards (an average of five yards per attempt) and 214 receiving yards. He had six rushing touchdowns and three receiving touchdowns.

  1. belichick took a 5th rounder cut by three teams and made a hot commodity out of him. good for lewis, but he should kiss the GOATs rings on the way out.

  2. Time for some loyalty from Mr Lewis. Yes, he could probably get a few extra dollars elsewhere but he wouldn’t have a coach like Belichick, a QB like Brady and the fun that comes from being part of the elite team that competes for a Super Bowl every year. Part of the Patriot Way is not being greedy.

  3. This is why you play for the Patriots when your career is stagnant. Dion is not the first to benefit and won’t be the last.

    Lewis has excellent vision and “wiggle”… That would seem to translate well to most offenses.

    You mean that “boring” offense that has lead to 3 Superbowl appearances in 4 years?

    If you think “dink and dunk” you obviously have not watched the Pats the last 2 years!

    No need to defend it (although you’re right of course)

    This is what fans of teams resort to (i.e. utter nonsense) because they have nothing. Imagine how frustrating it is for them as they watch the Patriots beat them all of these years and win Super Bowls.

    Dion Lewis’ success is because he’s talented. Plain and simple.

  7. As much as I love Dion Lewis,I don’t blame him for chasing the money. There’s already too many Patriots playing for the “hometown discount”. I wish him all the best,but would be thrilled if he stayed.
