SAY WHAT?

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis told me he lost weight this off-season by juicing—but wanted to be clear he was talking about the all-natural liquid variety, not PEDs. "Everything isn't tainted," Lewis said. "Life is O.K. Vegetables. Regular juicing." ... Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt wants to take advantage of cornerback/returner Patrick Peterson's playmaking abilities. "I'd say he's on par with [Chicago's] Devin Hester," Whisenhunt said. "He can make a game-changing play at any time. I'd love to have [him play more on offense]." ... CBS Radio host Doug Gottlieb told me his former employer ESPN wanted him to emphasize certain topics. "I was told specifically, You can't talk enough Tebow," Gottlieb said. "For whatever reason, people can't get enough of that story, and [ESPN] kind of stokes the fire." ... NFL Network's Rich Eisen recently interviewed Matt Ryan and told me the Falcons quarterback needs a new nickname. "He's outgrown Matty Ice," Eisen said. "That sounds like something a high school or college kid gets called. I asked him permission [to use] the Mattural."
