Soon-to-be Hall of Fame linebacker and career Baltimore Raven, Ray Lewis, is set to retire from the NFL after this year’s playoffs. Win or lose, this will be the end of a storied career for the vocal and emotional leader of the franchise. After 17 years in the NFL, Lewis is ready to be a full time dad and walk away from the sport he has loved his entire life. Lewis has been sidelined since October with a torn biceps and the 13 time Pro Bowler will make his return this Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts in the opening game of the 2013 playoffs. Lewis said it’s time to watch and support his sons as they play. His son, Ray Lewis III, will begin his freshman season at the University of Miami, the alma mater of the NFL great, and Ray said he told his son that if he was given a full scholarship to play football that he would be there to watch and support. Lewis said, “God is calling,” and it’s time to hang it up and support his children after they have sacrificed the last 17 years of their life so he could chase his dream.
