Will Ray Lewis PED Accusation Affect Super Bowl Outcome? (VIDEO)

On Tuesday Sports Illustrated reported that Ray Lewis, who missed 10 games with a torn triceps, sought help from Sports with Alternatives to Steroids (SWATS), a company that makes the unorthodox deer-antler spray, which is supposed to be sprayed under the tongue to speed the recovery of the injury. Preparing for his final career game, Lewis laughed it off, saying the accusation is foolish.

When told that he seemed angry Lewis said, “I’m never angry. I’m too blessed to be stressed. You can use a different word. You can use the word agitated because I’m here to win the Super Bowl. I’m not here to entertain somebody that doesn’t affect that one way or another. The word agitated is probably better.”

“Our world is a very secret society. We try to protect our world as much as we can,” Lewis said. “When you let cowards come in and do things like that, to try to disturb something. I’ve said it before and I’ve said a million times, the reason why I’m smiling is because it’s so funny of a story.

“I’ve never, ever took what he says I was supposed to do. It’s just sad that someone can have this much attention on a stage this big where the dreams are really real. I don’t need it, my teammates don’t need it, the 49ers don’t need it. Nobody needs it because it just really shows you that people really plan things and try to attack people from the outside. It’s just very foolish. The guy has no credibility. He’s been sued four or five times over this same BS. I just truly believe he doesn’t have the privilege for me to speak about it ever again.”

Ravens coach John Harbaugh spoke with Lewis on Wednesday and said Ray “knows there is nothing to it. He understands it’s something he’s never been involved in. He’s told us in the past and now that he has never taken any of it.”

Lewis said the Ravens aren’t distracted due to the report.

“I’ve been in this game for 17-plus good years, and I have a heck of relationship and too much respect for the business and my body to ever violate like that. For me and my teammates, I promise you that we have a strong group of men that don’t bend too much and we keep pushing forward. So it’s not a distraction for us,” he said.
