Tuesday’s Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network features an interview of Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.  Among other things, Ray is asked to share with football fans something they should know about former Ravens defensive coordinator and current Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, who is fighting a treatable form of leukemia.

“That he’s a man of men,” Lewis said.  “He’s a man that people want to aspire to be like.  That when you grow up as a man, that when you’re around Chuck you realize that, you know what, if life offers nothing else it offered me the opportunity to be around a man.  A true man.”

Ray’s full response appears below.  His full interview appears in roughly two hours, on the show that airs starting at 5:00 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

And if you’d like to share some thoughts with Coach Pagano, you can send them to P.O. Box 535000, Indianapolis, IN 46253.

    Ray Lewis brings me to tears like twice per year. It happened when he was on the NFLN set talking about Torrey Smith and it almost happened as I read this. I hope he plays forever.

    Best wishes to the Pagano family.

    If a warrior like Ray Lewis calls You a “man of men ”
    then that is all that needs to be said to convince me.

    That’s quite the statement, coming from a man who many people would say the same thing about.
