The modern day Jesus of the gridiron is happy he’s giving his fans a chance to see the chosen one before he rides off into the sunset.
“I’ve watched many people on how they retire, and when they retire,” Lewis said via profootballtalk.com..
“I had not just an obligation to myself, but I had an obligation to my teammates and I had an obligation to my city – that I did not want to end the season and then say, ‘I’m gone.’ I’ve invested too much time into Baltimore, into my teammates and into the organization to ever just walk out like that,”
“I believe that you should give everybody a fair chance to say their goodbyes. Playing that last game in Baltimore, announcing it the way I did, and knowing that it would be my last ride. Knowing that it would be my last time in M&T [Bank Stadium], it was one of the most amazing feelings ever. Just being able to appreciate that moment and not get to the end of the season – whenever the road stops – and say, ‘Oh, I’m done. I’m never coming back again.’
Can you believe this guy? He must have sprayed some deer antler spray up his nose into his brain by accident.
