Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said Sunday that he plans to return to Baltimore next season.
"Is this my last time as a Raven? Absolutely not," Lewis said, according to ESPN.com. "Let me answer that question before somebody asks me. Absolutely not. It's just too much. Life offers too much. Every time you step on this field, it's a true blessing."
Lewis and the Ravens fell Sunday to the New England Patriots 23-20 with a berth to the Super Bowl on the line.
