Ray Lewis to Return to the Ravens for a 16th Season

From Ravens Insider:

Ray Lewis made it clear Wednesday that he will continue to man the middle of the Ravens’ defense next season.

Earlier this month, The Baltimore Sun reported that there were “a lot of rumors swirling” about the Ravens offering the 35-year-old linebacker a financial package to retire.

“I heard that they gave me a front office job. Come on,” Lewis said on The Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday.

Lewis finished sixth in the NFL this season with 139 tackles. According to the Ravens, he missed only five snaps on defense.

A day after the Ravens’ playoff loss at Pittsburgh, Lewis scoffed at questions on whether he would consider retiring. He continued that stance on Wednesday, saying he would “absolutely” return.

“No ifs ands or buts about it,” Lewis said. “Unfinished business.”

This wasn’t very surprising. Lewis still is playing well enough considering his age and experience and he is still in very good shape with few lingering injuries. After that who knows.
