Lewis plans to retire

 

Ray Lewis will end his brilliant 17-year NFL career after the Baltimore Ravens complete their 2013 playoff run. Lewis has been sidelined since Oct. 14 with a torn right triceps. The 13-time Pro Bowl middle linebacker intends to return Sunday to face the Indianapolis Colts in what will almost certainly be his final home game. “I talked to my team today,” Lewis said Wednesday. “I talked to them about life in general. And everything that starts has an end. For me, today, I told my team that this will be my last ride.” Lewis will walk away from the game because he wants to spend more time with his two sons. Lewis was the AP Defensive Player of the Year in 2000, when Baltimore won the Super Bowl title, and in 2003. – Associated Press
