It was evident that Ray Lewis would be one of the quickest entries into the Ravens' Ring of Honor.

Regarded as the NFL's greatest middle linebacker to ever play, Lewis played all 17 seasons with the Ravens, helped them win two Super Bowls and was the face of the franchise for the majority of the time.

The second-ever draft choice for the Ravens in 1996, Lewis was named to the Pro Bowl 13 times throughout his career. He recorded 2,643 career tackles, easily a franchise best. He's also had seven career 20-tackle games.

Lewis won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award twice throughout his career, once in 2000 and another time in 2003. He was named the Super Bowl XXXV MVP. There isn't an accolade Lewis doesn't have after ending one of the great runs a player could have in the NFL.

He'll be inducted into the RIng of Honor during a ceremony at halftime.

In the comments section below, share your favorite memory of Lewis, whether it's something as simple as the squirrel dance before each game or as detailed as a particular play in a game.
