Retired Philadelphia Police Capt. Ray Lewis, who gained national attention with his defiant, in-uniform protest and subsequent arrest at Occupy Wall Street, made his first appearance with Occupy Philly on Monday afternoon. Lewis, 60, had been chastised in letters from Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey and the Fraternal Order of Police after he was arrested in Manhattan's Zuccotti Park on Nov. 17, wearing his old uniform. Again donning his uniform Monday on Independence Mall, Lewis asserted his right to free speech, calling his choice of clothing a "visual symbol" of the 24 years he devoted to police work.

Ray Lewis, the retired Philadelphia police captain who became a hero to the Occupy Wall Street movement, will not face legal consequences for wearing his old uniform at protests, a Police Department spokesman said Monday. "He will not be arrested," said Lt. Raymond Evers, spokesman for Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey. "He's exercising his First Amendment rights, and we're fine with that," Evers said. That position is in stark contrast to a letter Ramsey signed in November demanding that Lewis "immediately cease and desist" from wearing his old uniform in public.

If Jeremiah Trotter can't get paid the way Ray Lewis is, maybe he can be coached the way Lewis was. The former Eagles middle linebacker met yesterday with Washington defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis, the man who coached Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens' defense. Marvin Lewis, no relation to the linebacker, is the Redskins' new coordinator. Trotter, 25, who became an unrestricted free agent when the Eagles removed the franchise tag from him two weeks ago, also has a visit set up with the Packers.

The burden of proving Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and two friends guilty of murdering two men appeared to become more difficult yesterday when the state's first witness testified that all the assailants fled in the opposite direction of Lewis' limousine. Melissa Keeler said she watched from her bedroom window and called 911 as Richard Lollar and Jacinth Baker were savagely beaten in the early morning of Jan. 31 following the Super Bowl in Atlanta. But she could not identify any of the half-dozen or so attackers.

Jeff Reed kicked a 37-yard field goal with 1 minute, 36 seconds left last night to lift the Pittsburgh Steelers over the depleted Baltimore Ravens, 20-19. Pittsburgh (5-2) snapped a two-game home losing streak and stayed within a half-game of AFC North leader Cincinnati. The Ravens (2-5), two-touchdown underdogs, took a 19-17 lead after a botched play - a failed punt attempt - by the Steelers. Rookie Greg Warren's snap to Chris Gardocki deflected off blocking back Sean Morey and resulted in an incomplete pass by Gardocki.

With no sworn enemy on the Pittsburgh Steelers, the next opponent, Eagles star receiver Terrell Owens went back to an old feud yesterday. In what have become weekly dramas involving Owens and clashes with other players and coaches, Owens kept alive the war of words with linebacker Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens, whom the Eagles beat, 15-10, on Sunday. Owens was criticized for mocking Lewis' celebration dance Sunday after Owens scored a touchdown, a nominee for this week's NFL play of the week.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. - Ray Lewis spent 17 seasons instilling fear in his opponents while serving as an inspirational leader for the Baltimore Ravens. Now he's poised and eager to become a full-time dad. Lewis announced Wednesday he will end his brilliant NFL career after the Ravens complete their 2013 playoff run. Lewis has been sidelined since Oct. 14 with a torn right triceps. The 13-time Pro Bowl middle linebacker intends to return Sunday to face the Indianapolis Colts in what will almost certainly be his final home game.

Baltimore Ravens coach Brian Billick didn't back off an inch yesterday after giving throngs of reporters a piece of his mind on Monday about their handling of linebacker Ray Lewis. "I'm not going to lay down passively and let you kick me when I think you're wrong, you're inaccurate or you have an agenda which affects my team," Billick said. "I'm going to speak my mind. " The Ravens' coach explained that even though he believes in being open and interactive with the media and, in fact, generally enjoys the discourse, his lecture Monday was prompted by TV pieces and stories by the print media that highlighted the opinions of the relatives of Richard Lollar and Jacinth Baker, two men who were killed after Super Bowl XXXIV at an Atlanta nightclub when a melee broke out between a group they were in and Lewis' entourage.

Writer Winner Score Bob Brookover Eagles 20-6 The Eagles will show up without Brian Westbrook, which still puts them in better shape than the Ravens, who will arrive without an offense. Bob Ford Eagles 13-3 If the NFL is so smart, why aren't the Eagles and Ravens in the same conference and the same division? Add in the Redskins and this could have become a great geographical rivalry. Bill Lyon Eagles 19-13 Both teams are injury-depleted and will rely on replacements.

LaVar Arrington criticized the Washington Redskins for failing to support him during his recent knee injury, an injury that forced him to have another surgery last week. "It's like nothing in terms of the support from them, it's like nothing," Arrington told reporters at Redskins Park yesterday. "It's like, just let me disappear and die. " Arrington, walking on crutches, revealed that he had a second surgery last Wednesday on the same knee that forced him to miss 11 games last season.
