New Orleans, LA-- Ravens safety Ed Reed had a warning for reporters Monday: Don't be so sure Ray Lewis will retire after Super Bowl XLVII.
That's the word from NFL.com's Chris Wesseling.
"Maybe he'll play 10 games next year," Reed said, according to Wesseling.
Lewis told his teammates before the playoffs, "This will be my last ride." And the 13-time Pro Bowl linebacker reportedly has a multi-year deal in place to join ESPN as a commentator next season.
Lewis, 37, suffered a torn triceps in mid-October that many considered a season-ending injury. He returned for the playoffs, however, and has made 44 tackles in three games. Whether he's been his old self is up for debate.
While Reed, 34, plans to play next season, Lewis has given no indication he might change his mind. Reed has played alongside Lewis for 11 seasons and might have been engaging in wishful thinking.
