Deer-Antler Spray Keeps Ray Lewis in Spotlight for Wrong Reasons

The spotlight seems to be fixed on Ray Lewis, who hasn’t been able to escape it since joining the Baltimore Ravens in their inaugural season almost two decades ago. He’s a surefire Hall of Fame linebacker, but no matter how many times he mentions his Christian faith, everyone remembers the accusation against him of murder 12 years ago and now he’s being accused of using an illegal substance that’s commonly known as deer-antler sprays. You literally can’t make this stuff up.

Lewis has denied the reports that he used the spray to expedite his recovery from a torn triceps injury early in the season. It was incredible how fast Lewis recovered from what was supposed to be a season-ending injury, but it didn’t really surprise anyone considering the incredible level of intensity at which Lewis does seemingly everything, especially on the football field. Of course, someone thought it was impossible, which is why these allegations were made.

How is Lewis linked to something this crazy? If he wasn’t considered arguably the greatest linebacker in NFL history, would he be? Probably not, but that’s the kind of stuff that goes with the territory of being a superstar. Like he said, this happened so long ago that it only makes sense for someone to speak up now that he’s in the Super Bowl. People ain’t got no sense.
