Ray Lewis Net Worth: Ray Lewis is a retired American football linebacker who has a net worth of $45 million dollars and annual salary of $7 million. Ray Lewis was born May 15, 1975 in Bartow, Florida. Remarkably, Lewis spent his entire 17-year football career playing for the Baltimore Ravens of the NFL (National Football League). Ray Lewis began his football career after high school at the University of Miami. In 1996, Lewis was a first-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens. In 2000 and 2003 the league named Lewis its Defensive Player of the Year—just the sixth player in history to win the award multiple times. In addition, he earned 13 trips to the Pro Bowl during his career and was named to the NFL's All Decade (2000s) team. He was a part of the Ravens' team during its Super Bowl victory in 2000, and was named Defensive Player of the Year that same season. In 2013, Lewis was also a part of the Ravens' Super Bowl victory as well, after which he retired from professional football. He is arguably just as well known (and infamous) for his legal troubles in January of 2000 when a fight broke out between Lewis and his companions and another group of people, resulting in the stabbing deaths of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar. Lewis and two companions, Reginald Oakley and Joseph Sweeting, were questioned by Atlanta, Georgia police and 11 days later the three men were indicted on murder and aggravated-assault charges. The white suit Lewis was wearing the night of the killings was never found and District Attorney Paul Howard alleged the blood-stained suit was dumped in a garbage bin outside a fast food restaurant. Victim Jacinth Baker's blood was found inside Ray Lewis's limousine. Two weeks into the trial Lewis's attorneys, Don Samuel and Ed Garland, negotiated a plea agreement with the District Attorney within which the murder charges against Ray Lewis were dismissed in exchange for his testimony against Oakley and Sweeting and his guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice. Much controversy still surrounds Lewis, as the public has been vocal about its disgust toward the notion of revering a man many consider a "thug" who turned his friends in to save himself.
