One of the most dominant defensive players in NFL history just might be warming up to the idea of a career in coaching.

Asked Friday about the possibility of transitioning to the sidelines, longtime Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis hinted that such a move could soon be on the table.

“I’ve been asked that a lot,” Lewis said prior to a practice at the Pro Bowl in Orlando, Fla., according to the team’s official website. “A few years out, a few years removed for me – I’m thinking about it a little bit.”

Lewis quickly found himself in the media world after ending his career with a second Super Bowl ring during the 2012 season, as he’s worked with both ESPN and FS1 in the years since.

Perhaps jumping into the mix as an AFC coach at this week’s Pro Bowl festivities again got the competitive juices flowing.

“I don’t know if I’ll go directly into it, but it’s something I’m definitely looking into,” Lewis said.

Lewis spent his entire 17-year career in Baltimore after being selected in the first round of the 1996 draft.

With 13 Pro Bowls, a pair of Defensive Player of the Year awards, and a Super Bowl MVP highlighting a long list of accolades, it’s only a matter of time before he’s inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
