There will be a bust waiting for you in Canton in five years.

Congrats on a super career.

Completely agree, BG... One of the great players of any era - not just ours.

Completely agree, defiantly a bust waiting for Lewis in Canton, I've enjoyed watching him play, and I wish him good luck with life after his football career.

January 2, 2013  02:05 PM ET

Ray has had a long and productive career.

January 2, 2013  03:12 PM ET

I also think Rays timing was clever, could inspire the Ravens to play well to give Ray a big sendoff.

January 2, 2013  03:22 PM ET

Can't imagine the Ravens without Ray Lewis. Great career.

Yeah - like Pittsburgh and Bettis. Not sure they can pull it off though.

Chuck Strong vs Ray Ray Retirement which team has more inspirational edge should be an epic showdown.

January 2, 2013  03:45 PM ET

exactly G! My money is on Chuck strong and Andrew Luck, the best rookie QB in the league!

January 2, 2013  05:49 PM ET

Welp,

The Ravens will be coming in pumped.Let's see what they can do with it.

LOL..........yea right after I heard the announcement I thought it was clever timing, one thing Ray has always done is motivate and this may be his biggest motivational moment of them all.

According to several news reports Ray is close to signing a deal to be on the ESPN Monday night countdown crew, I think it's legit but I've been wrong before.
