ESPN – Ray Lewis retired from playing in the NFL, but the former Ravens linebacker will still be suiting up during the football season. This time, however, Lewis will actually be wearing a suit and not a helmet. Lewis has officially joined ESPN as an NFL studio analyst, the network announced in a news release. He will appear on “Monday Night Countdown,” “Sunday Night Countdown” and “SportsCenter,” while also contributing to ESPN’s annual Super Bowl coverage.
It’s happening people. You knew it was possible, but this makes it official. Ray Lewis is joining Boomer and the boys every Sunday and Monday to talk football, God, and the best way to discard a white, 46 long suit. And I know, I know, we all saw this coming. There were rumors about this 2 seconds after he announced he was going to retire. But part of me thought he was gonna go the way of God and become a preacher. Trading in his Sundays on the gridiron for Sundays on the podium preaching the Good word. I mean, I thought Sundays were supposed to be a day of rest anyway? And if I’m not mistaken Ray Lewis is like the most religious guy on the planet. No one is closer to the Big guy upstairs than #52. So I guess Ray joining ESPN is pretty much a slap in the Face. Kinda messed up now, if you ask me.
