It has been a decade since linebacker Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens won a Super Bowl. It was the first and only championship of Lewis’ career.
Lewis, who’ll soon be 35 and starting his 15th NFL season, desperately wants another one.
“I only play for one thing,” Lewis told Mike Duffy of BaltimoreRavens.com. “I want another ring bad. I want another championship.”
The arrival of receivers Anquan Boldin and Donte’ Stallworth and the return of Derrick Mason has encouraged Lewis.
“I really want a ring with the guys that I have in-house right now. We have a close-knit group, and that’s what builds championships,” Lewis said.
The Ravens have gotten close the past two years, making it to the AFC title game and the division round in the first two seasons of coach John Harbaugh’s tenure. In a still-tough AFC, it’s anyone’s guess whether they can nail down another NFL title.
