Could Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis be coming to a defense near you?

On Wednesday, the former Ravens great retweeted a throwback clip of one of his late-career highlights. Asking fans, "Should I pull a Brady?"

Lewis' tweet got a ton of reaction from the NFL world on social media.

"[Derrick] Henry out there now bro gon head and enjoy golf," one user replied.

"YESSS PLS," cried a Ravens fan in all-caps.

"The defense getting cooked on Sundays and they got on here Sunday night and tweet about NFTs. They need your presence," another fan said.

"Dare you," tweeted Rashod Bateman.

"Imagine if the Ravens didn’t sign 'the next Ray Lewis' in Bobby Wagner, but instead, signed, literally Ray Lewis," laughed another user.

"ABSOLUTELY!!!"

"PLEASE," asked another Baltimore fan.

The 46-year-old retired from football back in 2012, recovering from a torn triceps to help lead the Ravens defensive unit to a Super Bowl victory in his final season.

Ray Lewis is widely regarded as one of the greatest middle linebackers and motivators in the history of the game. Making 12 Pro Bowls, seven first-team All-Pro teams, and winning two Super Bowls on his way to an all-decade selection.

A return to the NFL would obviously be unprecedented; as it's very different to play quarterback into your 40's as opposed to linebacker.
