Lewis will keep on talking now that his playing career is over.||||||| ESPN officially announced Wednesday that the two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year will be joining the network as a studio analyst. The 37-year-old Lewis revealed in January that he would retire after 17 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, and the fearsome linebacker went out with a Super Bowl title.
Posted Feb. 07, 2013
Lewis doesn't want to make the transition from player to coach - not yet anyway. Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Thursday that Lewis, who retired after the Super Bowl, "has not expressed an interest to coach."||||||| Harbaugh expects Lewis to do "many amazing and powerful things" in retirement following a 17-year run as Baltimore's middle linebacker. Lewis earned his second Super Bowl ring Sunday, helping the Ravens beat San Francisco 34-31. Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti says the team is considering installing a statue of Lewis around M&T Bank Stadium in the near future.

Smiling, even laughing, at questions about a report linking him to a company that purports to make performance-enhancers, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said Wednesday he "never, ever took" the stuff. Lewis described himself as "agitated," not angry, that the story has become part of the Super Bowl-week prelude to Baltimore's game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.||||||| He added that he's certain his teammates won't be distracted by the report in Sports Illustrated. The magazine said Lewis sought help from a company that says its deer-antler spray and pills contain a banned product connected to human growth hormone. The 37-year-old Lewis is the leading tackler in the NFL postseason.

Lewis returned to his middle linebacker position Sunday after a 10-week absence. Minutes before the opening kickoff, Lewis thrilled the sellout crowd during introductions by coming out of the tunnel and gyrating to the tune "Hot in Herre."||||||| The 37-year-old Lewis will end his 17-year NFL career after the Ravens complete a postseason that began with Sunday's first-round game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Posted Jan. 02, 2013
Lewis will end his brilliant 17-year NFL career after the Baltimore Ravens complete their 2013 playoff run, saying: "I talked to my team (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. While working to return from his injury, Lewis watched them play on the same high school football team, and he intends to watch Ray Lewis III perform as a freshman next year for his alma mater, the University of Miami.
