Ray Lewis, Baltimore Ravens linebacker, set to retire after NFL playoffs - NY Daily News: "On the first play of Super Bowl XXXV, Kerry Collins stared across the line of scrimmage and into the eyes of Ray Lewis. For all practical purposes, the game was over at that point.
Lewis’ certain Hall of Fame career would be defined by the Ravens’ 34-7 rout that night. Lewis was a player who could not only dominate by the power of his physical abilities but by the force of his will.
After 17 seasons, that career will end, perhaps as early as this weekend. The middle linebacker announced Wednesday that he will retire when the season is over, with the Ravens opening the playoffs in what could be his last home game against the Colts on Sunday. Lewis is expected to make his return after tearing his triceps Oct. 24."
