OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - The Baltimore Ravens say Ray Lewis will retire after the playoffs.

The star linebacker told the team "This will be my last ride." He has been out since Oct. 14 with a triceps injury, but expects to play Sunday in the wild-card round against Indianapolis.

The 37-year-old Lewis says "It is time for me to create a new legacy" after 17 NFL seasons.

Lewis was the AP Defensive Player of the Year in 2000, when Baltimore won the Super Bowl title, and in 2003.
