Playing middle linebacker his entire career, Lewis is considered one of the greatest ever to play the position. Lewis was selected to 13 Pro Bowls and named an Associated Press All-Pro 10 times. He is also thought to be the greatest Baltimore Ravens player of all time. He won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2000 and 2003, becoming the sixth player to win the award multiple times. Lewis was also the second linebacker to win the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Award and the first to win the award on the winning Super Bowl team Lewis pled guilty to obstruction of justice in connection with the stabbing deaths of two men in 2000.

After a triceps tear that sidelined him for most of the 2012–13 season, Lewis returned for the Ravens playoff run and a victory in Super Bowl XLVII.

On March 13, 2013, it was announced that Lewis would join ESPN as a contributor for their NFL coverage.
