Sunday game will likely be his last
Veteran Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis is announcing he will retire after this season. The 37-year-old made the announcement at the team’s Owings Mills facility saying, quote, “It’s time for me to create a new legacy. ” Lewis was drafted by the Ravens in 1996 and the University of Miami product has played his entire career with Baltimore. He is also the last player remaining from the Ravens’ inaugural season. Lewis has gone to 13 Pro Bowls and was the Super Bowl 35 MVP against the New York Giants.
Lewis has been sidelined with a torn triceps since Week Six but said there is no reason not to be playing Sunday when the Ravens host the Indianapolis Colts in an AFC Wild Card playoff game. He is on the active roster. The game will likely to be Lewis’ last game at M&T Bank Stadium.
