As the regular season ended, halfback Jamal Lewis expressed his confidence in being able to re-sign with the Cleveland Browns.

On Thursday afternoon, that optimism was rewarded with a multiyear contract. Lewis agreed in principle to a deal to stay with the Browns more than two years. Terms of the deal, including the length, are not known. A Browns announcement is expected later Thursday afternoon.


A year ago, Lewis left the Baltimore Ravens to sign a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Browns, who had former Ravens chief scout Phil Savage as their general manager. He had rushed for 3.4 and 3.6 yards a carry in his final two seasons with the Ravens. Lewis re-established himself as one of the best backs in football, rushing for 1,304 yards and scoring nine rushing touchdowns last year.

As the 10-6 season ended, Lewis vowed to be even better in 2008. His plan is to be among the league leaders in rushing. With a multiyear contract behind him, Lewis can worry about moving ahead in the Browns offense and trying to lead the Browns to a playoff berth, which they just missed this season.
