Murder arrest still hangs, unfairly, over Lewis

FILE - This Sept. 10, 2012 file photo shows Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis wearing eye black showing the initials of former Ravens owner Art Modell before an NFL football game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Baltimore. Lewis will end his brilliant 17-year NFL career after the Ravens complete their 2013 playoff run. "I talked to my team today," Lewis said Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013. "I talked to them about life in general. And everything that starts has an end. For me, today, I told my team that this will be my last ride." (AP Photo/Nick Wass, FIle)

Perhaps the only way it will be forgotten is when Ray Lewis has long since retired from professional football, and then only if he continues to live a life above reproach.
