The ink hasn't even dried yet on his retirement papers—in fact, we'd be surprised if he even filled out his retirement papers yet—and the Baltimore Ravens are already talking about immortalizing Ray Lewis. Just a few days after the team won Super Bowl XLVII over the San Francisco 49ers, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti came out and revealed that the team is in the beginning stages of building a statue to honor Lewis for all that he's done for the franchise.

"I think he set himself apart in Baltimore sports history," he said yesterday, "and we will certainly look into it and I would not be surprised if there is one [outside of M&T Bank Stadium] in the next year or two."

There's no doubt that Lewis deserves a statue. But, damn! Can't the guy just enjoy his Super Bowl victory for, like, a week before he starts thinking about one?
