Ray Lewis was among many who paid tribute to former teammate Tony Siragusa on Wednesday.

Siragusa and Lewis were teammates on the title-winning 2000 Baltimore Ravens team, and Lewis paid tribute in a statement released Wednesday. Referring to Siragusa as “like a brother,” Lewis called his former teammate the “ultimate competitor” and encouraged everyone to “hug your loved ones for Goose.”

Siragusa, a longtime defensive lineman with the Colts and Ravens, died at the age of 55 on Wednesday. His sudden death clearly came as a shock to his former teammates.

Siragusa and Lewis spent five seasons together on the Ravens. Lewis was a second-year pro when Siragua, by then a veteran, joined the organization in 1997.
