, , ,

Eventually all good things must come to an end, and according to NFL.com, the long and storied career of one of the greatest to ever grace the field will come to a close following this season’s playoffs.

Baltimore Ravens LB Ray Lewis has announced that these playoffs will be his “last ride.”

From his iconic pre-game entrance to his devastating hits on the field, Lewis has left a lasting impact on the National Football League.

The 6-foot-1, 250 pound superstar was drafted as the No. 26-overall pick in the 1996 draft, and has suited up for the purple and black in all 17 seasons in the NFL.

Lewis has been selected to a mind-boggling 13 Pro Bowls and selected to the AP All-Pro First Team seven times during his career.

Following are quotes regarding Lewis’ retirement from his teammates (via NFL.com)

“Unreal. Very inspiring. There’s no one like him, man,” one observer texted Breer.

“I can’t picture Baltimore without him,” said running back Ray Rice.

From Terrell Suggs: “It’s amazing and it’s sad all at the same time.”

It’ll be hard to imagine the Ravens, and the entire NFL for that matter, without Lewis’ leadership. The culmination to an unbelievable career starts this Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET when the Ravens take on the Indianapolis Colts in the first round of the playoffs.
