For 17 seasons Ray Lewis has been the anchor for the Baltimore Ravens as well as the leader for the entire team.
Year in and year out you had to worry about number 52 whenever you were matched up against the Ravens. And year in and year out he continued to prove that he was among the best linebackers in the league. Drafted 26th overall out of Miami in the 1996 draft by the Ravens, Lewis has played every game in his career in Baltimore.
The future Hall-of-Famer played his last game in front of the home fans at M&T Bank Stadium this past Sunday when his AFC North champion Ravens eliminated the Indianapolis Colts and their rookie sensation quarterback Andrew Luck from the playoffs.
