Ray Lewis Memories: Jameel McClain

June 20, 2018

As Ray Lewis prepares to take his place in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, teammates, coaches, opponents, family and members of the media reflect on the legacy of the legendary Ravens linebacker with their favorite memories and never-before-heard stories.

Jameel McClain
As told to Bo Smolka

Linebacker Jameel McClain signed with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2008 and spent six seasons with Baltimore before finishing his career with the New York Giants in 2014. He's now the Ravens' assistant director of player development.

Ray obviously gave us great advice on how to hold ourselves and how to carry ourselves as men in the community, how to treat people. 

I got married about two years ago, and he found out about it and Ray, being the great guy that he is, he sent me like three boxes of his cigars that had just come out, with a special note to me and my wife. 

Just something that showed who he was and how he's always been -- caring about people and thinking about people even when people think he's not thinking about them at all.
