On Saturday at the NFL Honors, the NFL will announce its 2018 Hall of Fame class. However, hours before the big event, several reports have suggested that amongst those being enshrined is former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

Lewis spent his entire 17-year career with the Ravens, leading the franchise to two Super Bowl victories, while being named the MVP of Super Bowl XXXV. Lewis’ career accomplishments include 13 Pro-Bowl selections, 10 All-Pro selections and two Defensive Player of the Year awards.

Lewis was the best player and leader of the 2000 Ravens team that many consider to be the greatest defense of all time.

Lewis’ selection to the Hall of Fame during his first year on the ballot comes as no surprise. In addition to the aforementioned accolades he accumulated throughout his storied career, Lewis is considered to be not only the greatest middle linebacker of all time, but arguably the greatest defensive player of all time.

The rest of the 2018 Hall of Fame class, reportedly, are Brian Dawkins, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, Brian Urlacher , Robert Brazile, Bobby Beathard and Jerry Kramer.
