When it comes to sports tattoos, it doesn’t get more realistic looking than this. A guy named JD Baker shared a picture on Twitter of a Ray Lewis tattoo he got on his calf this week. Baker says he went to 15th Street Tattoo Studio in Edmond, Okla., for his work. As you can see, there is one shot of Lewis in pads, and another close-up of the former Baltimore Ravens linebacker’s face. At the bottom of the tattoo, it says “G.O.A.T.,” which is an acronym for “Greatest of All Time.” Baker says he is going to get a tattoo of Deion Sanders on his leg next, and that he plans to make his entire leg a sleeve of tattoos with an NFL legends theme. I wonder which players are going to make the cut. We have passed along a number of sports-related tattoos fans have gotten over the years. Some of them are pretty good, while others are pretty bad. This would definitely qualify as one of the good tattoos. It looks just like Lewis. Photo credit: Twitter/JD Baker H/T Darren Rovell Related posts: Fan h...

Ray 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.
The Baltimore Ravens released hard-hitting safety Bernard Pollard this morning, and many pundits wondered why?
As one unnamed league source said this about his release, “Three teams in how many years. Soon four. What does that tell you?”
Many figured Pollard was simply released for salary cap purposes.
That now may not be the case, as Pro Football Talk via Mike Silver of...
If Baltimore, Maryland had their self-made currency, on the back of each bill it would read at the top: ‘In Ozzie We Trust.’ If that was the case, Baltimoreans would be burning their money right now due to the Baltimore Ravens’ decision to release safety Bernard Pollard Wednesday morning after his physical, according to a source.
Pollard signed a three-year extension last...
For the past two days, it appeared that long time Ravens icon and future hall of famer Ed Reed was ready to join the mass exodus of free agents to leave Baltimore. But after receiving a contract offer from the Houston Texans after a lengthy visit, rumor has it that he is returning to Ozzie Newsome to see if his only employer at this level in his career will help him to retire as...

The Ravens let Bernard Pollard go on Wednesday.Fantasy Spin:The veteran safety, well known for his destruction of Patriots' superstars, led the team in tackles last season (98) despite missing three games because of cracked ribs. Joe Flacco's gigantic contract has given the Ravens' very limited financial flexibility so don't be surprised if the team cuts a few more...
No team has been ransacked and ravaged this free agency more than the defending Super Bowl Champion Ravens. They have lost nearly half of their team to retirement, free agency, releasing and trades and they are not just small names; players lost were major contributors to the Super Bowl run made by the Ravens this past season.
When you’re a winner in this league...
'Cause he's probably gonna be a Texan.
Ed Reed is definitely staying overnight for his Texans visit, told "It's looking serious," per a source.

I'm not that sad about it, the Patriots really haven't been in on Ed Reed all off-season. He's getting up there in age and I'm not sure how much he has...

The Ravens have signed another defensive end. This time it’s Marcus Spears, a former Cowboy first-round pick. According to reports, Spears and the Ravens agreed to terms on a two-year contract.
Spears was released by the Cowboys this offseason after starting six games last season.
Baltimore is focusing on strengthening their defensive front in free agency apparently.
One of the more high-profile NFL free agents this offseason is Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed and back on Thursday, he made a visit to the Houston Texans.
Reed and the Texans brass met for a period of time until they had to leave Reliant Stadium due to the start of concert by rapper Pitbull.
The fine folks over at NFL.com have the full details on that:

In the NBA, LeBron James received wide-ranging opinions when “The Decision” aired on ESPN and the King took his talents to South Beach. Could we see an NFL star use that same platform this year?

Ed Reed may be headed to Houston. The veteran safety was picked up by Houston Texans owner Bob McNair and other team officials prior to a meeting on Thursday.
Reed had been a large part of the Baltimore Reavens defense for a decade but with the team in salary cap trouble has become expendable.
The Texans would pair Reed with Daniel Manning who would operate as the teams strong safety...
