Ray Lewis to retire

Although it has been widely speculated for some time that this would be the final season of Ray Lewis’ career, today he made it official announcing that he will not return to active competition next season.

Lewis still at least one more game in him, as he will return to the Baltimore Ravens’ lineup after a triceps injury took him out for the entire regular season. The Ravens are entering the playoff as the number 4 seed in the AFC, and even if they win (thus extending the career of Lewis) this weekend, this is likely to be the linebacker’s final game in front of the Baltimore crowd.
