Ray Lewis won’t be out of work for long once this football season ends.
According to a report from SI.com, Lewis is expected to sign a multi-year contract with sports network ESPN and will have “a significant role” on the station’s Monday Night Countdown program.
Lewis, who was drafted by the Ravens in their first draft after the franchise relocated from Cleveland, announced his impending retirement Wednesday following this year’s playoffs.
Lewis, a middle linebacker, has been the heart and soul of the franchise for 17 seasons, and helped lead the team to its only Super Bowl title in 2000.
The Ravens will take on the Indianapolis Colts, the franchise that broke the city’s heart when it moved in 1984, at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday.
