Ray Lewis to present Brady on NFLN
By Mike Reiss
NFL Network's "Top 100 Players" series wraps up Sunday night, with the top 10 revealed over two hours (starting at 8 p.m. ET). Quarterback Tom Brady will fall somewhere in the top group, and the team revealed an interesting twist tonight -- Brady will be presented by veteran Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.
Brady will be the fifth Patriot to be on the show, with the rankings a result of player votes.
Linebacker Jerod Mayo was 62nd. He was presented by Patriots coach Bill Belichick.
Receiver Wes Welker was 50th. Bills coach Chan Gailey did the honors.
Offensive lineman Logan Mankins was 39th. Belichick presented him.
Defensive lineman Vince Wilfork was 35th. Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, a fellow University of Miami alum, did the honors.
