Ray Lewis' playing days may be over, but his image will very literally remain close to home.
Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said Thursday that the team will build a statue for the future first ballot Hall of Famer.
Bisciotti is unclear where the statue will be erected -- there's already one of Colts quarterback Johnny Unitas outside M&T Bank Stadium -- but confirmed it'll get done.
"I think he set himself apart in Baltimore sports history," Bisciotti said of Lewis, via ESPN.com, "and we will certainly look into it and I would not be surprised if there is one there in the next year or two."
Last Sunday's Super Bowl win marked the final game of Lewis' illustrious career in which he earned 13 Pro Bowl trips and seven All-Pro selections in 17 seasons.
Arguably the greatest linebacker to ever play the game, Lewis is obviously deserving of having his name etched in Baltimore lore, joining the likes of Unitas and Cal Ripken Jr.
