It seems like only yesterday that Jamal Lewis was gashing the Cleveland Browns on his way to a record setting 295 yard rushing performance. Today, Lewis is looking to attack the Cleveland Browns organization off the field.  Last month, John Mengels released a story outlining an interview with Lewis and his recent post-concussion effects (Jamal Lewis Mental Uncertainties), specifically during his stint with the Cleveland Browns. In that interview, Lewis set forth the reasons for his joining over 2,200 other former NFL players in a class action concussion lawsuit against the NFL.  The ramifications of head related injuries have been highly publicized in recent months as more and more former players have come forward with allegations of long-term brain trauma allegedly exacerbated throughout their NFL careers.

Fujita sees bounty probe as part smear campaign

Scott Fujita, a union leader with a record of criticizing the NFL's player-safety record, sees elements of a ''smear campaign'' in a bounty investigation that has sullied his reputation.

Baltimore Ravens 2012 Fantasy Football Preview

Cleveland Browns: 2012 Fantasy Football Preview
