NFL.com has confirmed that linebacker Ray Lewis has re-signed with the Baltimore Ravens. A press conference to officially announce the signing has yet to be disclosed by the team.
It was announced last week that the Ravens had agreed in principle to a multiyear contract with Lewis, who has spent all 13 of his NFL seasons in Baltimore. NFL Network’s Adam Schefter reported the contract is worth $22 million over three years.
“From beginning to end as a Raven … Wow! To be with the same team with the same fans for an entire career, that doesn’t happen in the NFL,” Lewis said in a statement released by the team last week. “The bottom line for me is that God always finishes first, and I prayed over this. Over the last six days, I took a backseat and waited to see what would happen. This is part of God’s plan, and I couldn’t be happier. For me to be here in an area that has become so important to me and my family, that’s special, very special.
