Ray Lewis announces plan to retire after the playoffs
Ray Lewis announced Wednesday that he plans to retire at the end of the season, his 17th with the Baltimore Ravens. Lewis told his teammates that “this will be my last ride,” according to the team’s official Twitter feed.
Baltimore hosts Indianapolis on Sunday in the AFC wild-card round.
“I’ve ran my course. It’s time for me to go create a different legacy,” Lewis said, per Jeff Zriebec of the Baltimore Sun. “Wherever it ends it ends. But I didn’t come back to be eliminated in the first round.”
