That's the way it should be.
It wouldn't have looked right to see him in another uniform. Did Johnny Unitas look good in a Chargers uniform? That's what Lewis would have been in another uniform.
Now he will retire playing only for the Ravens, which is the way it should be. Too many times players we identify with a team end up somewhere else.
That's not right. Now Lewis will be revered in Baltimore the rest of his life.
It's Johnny U, Cal Ripken and Ray Lewis.
That's worth a ton more than money. Plus, Lewis got a nice deal from the Ravens, three years for $20 million.
I like it that he's staying put. He should as well.
Ray Lewis not wearing purple wouldn't have been right. Lewis isn't the same player he was a few years back, and I don't think he'd be the same player somewhere else. The Ravens are perfect for him. He had to know that. When he didn't ger the play on the free-agent market he expected, he had to go back.
Ravens fans have to be thrilled.
Ray-Ray is staying where he belongs.
