Earlier today the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame semi-finalists were announced and as expected former Ravens linebacker, Ray Lewis is included on the ballot.

Lewis played all of his seventeen season with the Ravens and won two Super Bowl titles. Ray’s first title came in the 2000 season, his fifth professional season and Lewis’s second Lombardi trophy was won in his final season back in 2012.

 

Lewis finished his career a thirteen time Pro Bowler, seven time First Team All-Pro, and a two-time Super Bowl Champion, while also being named Super Bowl thirty-seven MVP. Lewis was also named NFL AP Defensive Player of the Year in 2000 and 2003. Ray was a part of both the Pro Football Hall of Fame 1st Team All-2000’s Team and the Pro Football Reference 1st Team All 2000’s Team.

Stats wise Lewis ended his career with 227 games started, in those games he collected thirty-one interceptions, 41.5 sacks, 1,562 tackles in the regular season. In the post-season Lewis played in twenty-one playoff games, going 14-7 in those games. According to Pro Football Reference Ray Lewis is third all-time in NFL Approximate Value Career Leaders which weighs the value a player had on his team throughout his career.

Ray is arguably the best linebacker to ever play the game of football. Come August Ray should be sporting that gold jacket and have a bust in Canton.
