08:50 PM ET 01.02 | The biggest news of the NFL week leading up to the first weekend of the postseason, is news that Baltimore Ravens legend and future Hall of Famer Ray Lewis will retire after the end of the Ravens season. While the sports community is in a spiral of looking back on what a career Lewis has had, one former teammate and friend isn't buying the talk. Deion Sanders appeared on NFL Network this morning to dish on how he felt about the news, and he said straight up that it's not true - at least he's not buying it. There's still a lot of time before an official announcement will be made, and let's not forget Randy Moss took a year off and returned this year to the 49ers. But no matter what Ray Lewis does, like everything he's ever done, it won't please everyone.

One hears rumors of a cluster of cells bouncing around inside his noggin like a Pong game that cannot be shut down.

Deion... The Belmonts are looking for you; they want to reform and go on the road..."Here's my story..it's sad but true.."

Moss's situation was different. If Ray Lewis says he's retiring, he's retiring.

January 3, 2013  05:55 PM ET

If being a LB doesn't include tackling then yes by all means don't retire 52.

Retiring? Maybe Deion thought Ray Lewis said "reloading". Seriously though, Ray Lewis, putting aside the legal issues from a decade ago, is one amazing talent.

Lewis isn't stupid, he knows his play has slipped lately, even before the most recent injury. Moss took plays off BEFORE he retired, so coming back to the NFL and only half-assing it for a couple more seasons is pretty much normal for him. Lewis never half-**** anything in his life, except maybe the obstruction of justice he got in trouble for back in Atlanta. I think he knew he was done after this playoff round - judging from how fast ESPN seems to have hired him, I think the day after the doctor told him "torn triceps" (or biceps, pec, whatever muscle it was), he was already talking to ESPN about next year.

For someone who's as much a showman as Deion, he's really lousy as a sports commentator.

I wouldn't put it past Ray to be using this as a ploy to help motivate and inspire his teammates for the postseason. It's the sort of thing he'd do (and I mean that in a good way).

No, he's fine as a commentator.

Not so good as an ANALYST, but fine as a commentator. Quite, good actually.

"But no matter what Ray Lewis does, like everything he's ever done, it won't please everyone."
Like that dude that got stabbed back in 2000.

Deion Sanders is the same type of thug and pile of slime and excrement as Ray Lewis. The difference is that Sanders hasn't murdered anyone ... yet.

January 4, 2013  12:57 PM ET

"But no matter what Ray Lewis does, like everything he's ever done, it won't please everyone."

Um ... who was "pleased" when he committed murder? I mean, other than Lewis, who got a good lawyer and got away with murder?
