NFL.com's Albert Breer cited two sources who were in the room in reporting that Lewis addressed his Ravens teammates Wednesday. The two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year and MVP of Super Bowl XXXV rose to his feet and spoke about playing for one other and the bond between teammates before announcing his plans to retire.
"Unreal. Very inspiring. There's no one like him, man," one observer texted Breer.
"Everything I've done is to make another run at the Lombardi," Lewis said Wednesday.
