With Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis announcing his retirement after the playoffs, players around the league have been reflecting on his career, and Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall offered his take to Stephen Whyno of the Washington Times.
“Guys were like, you could argue Fletch has had a better career,” he said.
“Might not have had all the hype and things like that, but if I’m starting a team, I love Ray Lewis to death, but if I’m starting a team, I’m taking 59 every day of the week.”
“Ray’s made it sexy to be a middle linebacker in this National Football League; In a league that’s so offensive-driven, it’s hard to kind of get that buzz. It took Fletch 12 years to actually get to a Pro Bowl even those his numbers kind of justified he should’ve been there already.”
In other London Fletcher news, he was named NFC Defensive Player of the Month yesterday, despite dealing with a lingering left ankle injury ('let's see Ray Lewis do that' is what Hall is probably thinking)...
“I don’t think if you knew he had an ankle injury, nobody would know if it wasn’t reported on the injury report,” Hall said. “That’s just the kind of competitor he is, man. He kind of battles through in practice every day and somehow in the game he looks a hundred percent fresh.”
