Baltimore Raven Ray Lewis Will Retire at End of Season

Updated: Wednesday, January 2 2013, 05:21 PM EST

This Sunday will be Ray Lewis' final game at M&T Bank Stadium. During a press conference this afternoon the Ravens linebacker announced that he will be retiring after this season. 

Lewis just returned to the field after suffering a triceps injury.  He says while he was recovering he spent time in Florida watching two of his sons play football.  He says his desire to be with his family more played a large part in his decision.


Lewis' retirement comes as a surprise to his teammates.  He told them this morning just minutes before addressing the media. 

The Ravens linebacker was drafted by the Ravens in 1996, where he played his entire career for the team.

He has been selected to 13 Pro Bowls and named an Associated-Press All-Pro ten times.  He won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2000 and 2003; he was the 6th player to win the award multiple times. 

He was also the second linebacker to win the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Award, and the first linebacker to win the award on the winning Super Bowl team.

The Baltimore Ravens take on the Indianapolis Colts on January 6th at 1pm in Baltimore. That will be Lewis' final game at M&T Bank Stadium.
