It’s hard to fathom the Baltimore Ravens without Ray Lewis because there has never been a Ravens team without Ray Lewis.
ESPN Stats and Info dug up some interesting numbers on Lewis’ (future) Hall of Fame career that make it seem even more amazing. For starters, did you know that Lewis is the only active position player to enter the NFL in 1996 or before?
Tony Gonzalez, Ronde Barber and London Fletcher are that only active position players that have appeared in more games than Lewis (228).
Lewis is the only player in NFL history to tackle 40 sacks and 30 interceptions in a career and he is one of six players to win the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year award multiple times (2000 and 2003).
