Could Ray Lewis seriously try and come out of retirement?
The two-time Super Bowl champion and Hall of Famer said in an appearance on SHOWTIME’s “Inside the NFL” he spoke with Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti and told him he would come back to the league to play with Lamar Jackson.
“I told [Ravens Owner] Steve [Bisciotti] the other night in the box, ‘You know I still got two quarters in me. I can come play with LJ [Lamar Jackson],’” Lewis said. “If you all are holding the ball for seven minutes on a drive, and then nine minutes on a drive, I’m like ‘Man, I’ve never had that in my career.’”
“L.J., the next time I text you, you better text me back,” Lewis added. “Your texts are flooded, but when the general calls, I need you to answer.”
To that, Jackson laughed and said, “I got you,”
Lewis recently told TMZ Sports that Jackson has the “it” factor.
“Talking to Bisciotti at the time I was like, ‘You don’t know what you’ve got in Jackson, but I’ve watched that kid his entire career. He has the ‘it’ factor,’” Lewis said. “There’s a number of athletes that come around in a generation that have an ‘it’ factor. There aren’t too many people that you can say that about, [but] he’s one of those of people.”
Lamar has already been named Offensive Player of the Week three times this season, and his name has been thrown around for possible MVP considerations as well.
