Ray Lewis addressed his teammates Wednesday and said "this will be my last ride."
"I've ran my course. It's time for me to go create a different legacy," Lewis said as the Ravens prepare to host the Colts in a Wild Card game Sunday. If he doesn't reconsider his retirement this offseason, Lewis will go down as arguably the greatest middle linebacker in the history of the NFL. During his 17 NFL seasons, he was a first-team All-Pro seven times, a 13-time Pro Bowler and a two-time AP Defensive Player of the Year. He was also the MVP of Super Bowl XXXV when the Ravens beat the Giants. Lewis, who turns 38 in May, is expected to return from his triceps tear to play Sunday.
