Baltimore Ravens veteran linebacker Ray Lewis announced that this season will be his last in the NFL. Lewis is making a start this weekend in his final game in Baltimore against the Indianapolis Colts.

Lewis suffered a torn triceps injury earlier this season and has found his way back onto the field. Once he suffered the injury, many speculated that he might not play another football game in his career, given the nature of the injury and his age.

SI.com is reporting this morning that Lewis is very close to signing a contract with ESPN as a contributor next season. Richard Deitsch writes that Lewis will have a significant role on the network’s Monday Night Countdown pre-game show next season.

He will likely circulate around the various ESPN shows as well.

SI.com reports that ESPN has declined comment but the source speaking to SI suggests that the announcement will be made as soon as the Baltimore Ravens post-season is finished.

Lewis’ son, Ray Lewis III will play for the University of Miami Hurricanes in 2013, playing running back/defensive back.
