The rain couldnt ruin the celebration for Jamal Lewis on Thursday night.
Lewis, the Ravens all-time leading rusher with 7,801 yards, was inducted into the Ring of Honor at halftime of a game against the Cleveland Browns under umbrellas because of a light drizzle.
Lewis was flanked by owner Steve Bisciotti, GM Ozzie Newsome, and fellow Ring members Peter Boulware and Jonathan Ogden, among others.
"It felt great to be out there in front of the fans and on the field once again without the pads on, of course," said Lewis, who led the offense en route to a Super Bowl victory for the 2000 season. "It never gets old. I still get the goose bumps and the airs, but the good part about it (is) I didnt have to go out and suit up and play for 60 minutes."
Lewis played for nine seasons he missed all of 2001 with a knee injury and spent the last three with the Browns.
His best statistical season was 2003, when he ran for 2,066 yards, third-best in NFL history, and 14 touchdowns. He averaged 129.1 yards per game that season.
"It was great playing in front of these fans," Lewis said. "It was always a live crowd, always stood behind us."
