During his playing days with the Baltimore Ravens, the legendary Ray Lewis was one of the top linebackers and overall defensive players in the league. And now, it looks like he’s going to be giving back to his former team in an incredibly unique way by working with current star linebacker Roquan Smith.

During this weekend’s broadcast of the Pro Bowl games, Ray Lewis revealed that he plans to spend the offseason helping Roquan Smith get better and watching film with the current Ravens star.

“Roquan, if he takes his game and takes just one more step up, I just think he can be freaking phenomenal,” Lewis said during the Pro Bowl, according to Pro Football Talk. “Now when I’m watching him I’m saying, How can I help him get better? That’s why I think this offseason we’re really going to sit down and go through film, so I can teach him those little things.”

It’s certainly a big move that should help Smith take another step toward super star status, and the NFL world had plenty to say about it on Twitter.

Smith has already emerged as one of the top linebackers in the NFL and just signed a massive new deal with the Ravens that makes him the highest-paid linebacker in the league’s history.

With Lewis helping him this offseason, it sounds like he’s only going to get better.
