Baltimore Ravens (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/teams/ravens) running back Jamal Lewis (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/players/5034) was released Thursday morning from a Florida prison camp after completing a four-month sentence for using a cell phone to try to set up a cocaine deal.

Lewis left the prison in Pensacola, Fla., and was expected to head to a halfway house in Atlanta for a two-month term.

"I just spoke to Jamal, he was released early this morning," said Kevin Byrne, a team spokesman. "He seemed to be in a very good mood."

Byrne said an attorney for Lewis has asked federal prison officials to allow the player to attend the Ravens minicamp June 13-16.

"Medically, it would be good for him," Byrne said. "This is where he makes his living, but I don't know the court system. His lawyer is handling that."
