Up until now, the New England Patriots have been pretty quiet about impending free agent running back Dion Lewis. Many speculated that the Patriots would let him test free agency. But, this tidbit of Friday news suggests that the Patriots may want to re-sign Lewis. The Pats may need to take a number in line, because many other NFL teams would love to steal the Bill Belichick-coached running back. Lewis exploded onto the scene in 2017, tallying 1,110 total yards and nine touchdowns. He played in all 16 games — starting in eight — as he began to pick up the pace towards the mid-part of the season.
