Ravens LB Ray Lewis is a sure fire hall of famer whenever he finally retires, but at age 37 he's still going strong. This week both Michael Vick & Nnamdi Asomugha paid their respects to the 13 time pro bowler.

Nnamdi Asomugha on what Ray Lewis has meant to the game.

"It's meant a lot. The Ray Lewis name is synonymous with football. Everybody knows him. I'm sure there are kids in grade school that idolized him and are now on his team. It says a lot. He loves the game. I played with him like three or four times and I know his attitude. Even if it's an all-star game, his eyes are just [focused], you know, ‘I want to make all the plays, I want to do this, that.' That's his thing."

Michael Vick on what Lewis has accomplished.

"Ray Lewis has accomplished a lot, not only for himself but for the NFL. I think the way he's played the game, younger guys coming into the league have patterned themselves after him and strive off the way he plays and his intensity. He's been a great ambassador for the NFL. He's definitely a big brother to all of us and he's always been that way and I love him to death. But this week, you've got to face him."

Finally Andy Reid said of Lewis, "He's a Hall of Famer. If nobody else is putting him in, then I'm putting him in the Hall of Fame."
