One question that looms in the back of Ravens fan’s minds is when their franchise linebacker Ray Lewis will hang up the cleats and call it quits.  Lewis continues to play at a high level, even at 36 in his 16th NFL season, but sooner or later the future Hall of Famer will end his career.

The Ravens re-signed Lewis through 2015, but he hinted that he doesn’t plan on playing more than two seasons in an interview with the NFL Network.  Ray Lewis retirement news resurfaced this morning in an interview with in which he hinted that this season could be it under one circumstance.

“My son will be a junior this year, Lewis said.  “I only play this game for another ring. If we can win it this year, and I’m being brutally honest with you, if we win it this year, I’m gone to then spend as much time as I can with him.  I’m gone to be with my son. And I feel like now we have enough pieces in place to make a good run at the Super Bowl.”

While the certainly isn’t a clear cut answer, should the Ravens go all the way in 2011 it sounds as though that’s the end for Ray Lewis.

And what a fitting end it would be.
