Lewis was asked about his pending "lame duck" status with the club as he currently is heading into the 2012 season with only one year left on his contract. While Lewis said that doesn't concern him necessarily, he also disclosed that Bengals' owner Mike Brown has approached him concerning extending his contract, something Lewis said they would discuss further this off season.
“He would like to get it extended. He’s told me that two or three times,” Lewis said. “We would like to continue moving forward and we haven’t had the opportunity to do it. Hopefully we’ll get it resolved.”
