Dion Lewis is one of the best running backs on the market, so it isn't a surprise multiple teams are interested in his services.

According to Pro Football Talk, Lewis has received interest from eight teams, including the Patriots. The other teams are the Dolphins, Jets, Giants, Titans, Texans, Colts, and 49ers.

With all these teams said to be interested, Lewis can work the market and try and cash in as much as he can. With so many teams showing interest, it would appear someone will give Lewis a big deal and therefore the Patriots will be out of the mix. Historically, the Patriots stay away from big contracts with running backs.

Lewis had his best season in 2017 playing in all 16 games, while totaling 180 carries for 896 yards and six touchdowns, while catching 32 passes out of the backfield for 214 yards.

The running back is 27 years old, so while he has battled injury, should have a few good years ahead of him.
