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.

Buck - Do you personally know Ray? Being the educated person you are, you know you can't say he is a 'good guy'. We don't really know him.

Evets - "Mr. Lewis supports his children both financially and emotionally" - I do the same with my children and like Chris Rock says, "That's what you're supposed to do!"

John Doe, It's all of the great entertainment that makes thousands smile and enjoy the game a bit more that makes him a good guy in my opinion...I am not educated and I don't know him personally...I also don't know of one human being that is without flaw.. He's probably a nicer guy than you either way you view him personally..

How about "gladiators?" What if he told players to refer to themselves as gladiators?

There are some nit picking bitches in this world. Take your negativity and put it where the sun don't shine.
