Report: Lewis Heading to ESPN

The longtime Baltimore Raven is expected to join the network’s Monday Night Countdown program.

Ray Lewis won’t be out of work for long once this football season ends.

According to a report from SI.com, Lewis is expected to sign a multi-year contract with sports network ESPN and will have “a significant role” on the station’s Monday Night Countdown program.

Lewis, who was drafted by the Ravens in their first draft after the franchise relocated from Cleveland, announced his impending retirement Wednesday following this year’s playoffs.

Lewis, a middle linebacker, has been the heart and soul of the franchise for 17 seasons, and helped lead the team to its only Super Bowl title in 2000.

The Ravens will take on the Indianapolis Colts, the franchise that broke the city’s heart when it moved in 1984, at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday.

Lewis, is a great NFL professional football linebacker player for the Baltimore Ravens. At least as an announcer on ESPN, we wont have to see him dance any more. He can now tell his buddies , play football and leave the dancing to the professionals at the dance studios. your there on the football field is to play football not dancing.

I disagree, come on when something in your life happens don't you like to celebrate. Thay goes along with sports and makes the games more enjoyable for myself. You never know Ray Just might fool you and be another Emmit. Lighten up people and let the celebrating began. GO RAVENS!

I hope its not going to be a sermon everytime he opens his mouth. Good football player but keep all that preaching b/s to yourself. Go Colts. I cant believe I just said that. I just threw up a little in my mouth.

As a person who knew this greatest quarterback that ever lived personally and spent many hours with him know that he came to the ball park only to play football. He was not a rah rah guy who was seeking all the publicity but was also known to be a great humanitarian who signed autographs until every one left. Oh God what a person. If he today saw football players dancing . he probably would say, hey guys your football players not dancers. Weell I could go on for days , weeks and years talking about this great football player but I will end by saying, Johnny C. Unitas, I miss you very much and so do your millions of fans. Johnny C. Unitas was not known for this but he was also the best horse shoe player I have ever seen.
