Ray Lewis' last hurrah with the Ravens opened with a packed news conference on Jan. 2, was punctuated by his last dance in front of fans at M&T Bank Stadium four days later, and has led to a number of rallying cries citing his "last ride" comment. Matt Birk has witnessed it all, and the Ravens center said he doesn't expect that kind of farewell when he decides to retire. "A guy like Ray Lewis, you send him off properly — press conferences, all that stuff," Birk said after Friday's practice. "Guys like me, I just disappear, and then you're sitting around one day wondering, 'Hey, whatever happened to that guy whose locker used to be over here?' That's how it goes."
