Ray Lewis on PED accusation: ‘That’s the trick of the devil’
Ray Lewis almost always gives credit to God and Jesus for everything positive that happens in his life and his NFL career. His religious preaching has become particularly unbearable during the final stretch of his career — so much so that even “SNL” recently decided to rip on Lewis for his obsession with drama.
If all the good things that happen in the Ravens linebacker’s life are the work of God, than the obstacles must be the work of the devil. When asked about the report that surfaced on Tuesday about his involvement with a banned substance found in deer antler spray, Lewis blamed the devil for trying to knock him down.
“That’s the trick of the devil,” Lewis said according to Pro Football Talk. “The trick of the devil is to kill, steal and destroy. That’s what he comes to do. He comes to distract you from everything you’re trying to do.”
Lewis added that you have to trust God to build you up when the devil is trying to tear you down. At this point, I can honestly say I don’t even care if Lewis used a performance-enhancing substance to recover from his torn triceps. The only thing that matters to me is that he’s (hopefully) hanging it up in just four short days. I can’t take anymore crying or hyperboles.
