Former Ravens linebacker Lewis joins ESPN
To the surprise of no one, former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis has joined ESPN.
Lewis, who retired after the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII in February, will appear on "Monday Night Countdown," "Sunday Night Countdown" and "SportsCenter," while also contributing to ESPN's annual Super Bowl coverage.
It had been rumored shortly after Lewis announced that this would be his final season that he would join ESPN.
"ESPN is such a big part of how fans watch and experience sports, especially the NFL, so I'm excited to join their team," Lewis said in a statement. "I'm ready to bring the same level of passion to this next phase of my life as I brought to the field during my years as a player. I can't wait to work with my new teammates, many of whom I've already known for years."
