He has announced his retirement at the end of the season. He was likely waiting until the Ravens made it to the playoffs so he could go out on a high note. There's a chance that if the Ravens missed the playoffs, Ray may have given it another year. So if you combine that with the fact that he's on the field, his career isn't over yet.
