Browns head coach Eric Mangini on Thursday spoke highly of the leadership of Ravens MLB Ray Lewis, still playing at a high level in his 15th NFL season.

“I like that term 'force-multiplier,' " said Mangini, a quality-control coach/offensive assistant on the Ravens' coaching staff who said he was in the draft room when Baltimore selected Lewis. "He just makes people around him better. He’s really good, he’s really good at what he does, and he forces, not in a negative way, but he makes people want to play better. He makes people want to push themselves because he is constantly pushing himself to be as good as he can be.

"When you have arguably your best player with that type of work ethic, it affects everybody. I think all the great ones have that quality, where there’s never a sense of complacency."

The Browns visit the Ravens on Sunday.
