Wes Welker’s Wife Rips Ray Lewis For Past Murder Charges Following AFC Championship

There have been a lot of shots fired back and forth between players from the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens following their heated AFC Championship game. Now, it isn’t just the players who are getting involved in the trash-talk, but the wives as well.

Taking a note from Gisele Bundchen, who ripped Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker just a season ago, Welker’s wife wanted to remind us all about Ray Lewis’ trouble past, which included being indicted on murder charges. Lewis has been the focal point of the media because of this being his final season in the NFL, but Welker’s wife, Anna, wanted to focus on something different.

Proud of my husband and the Pats,” Anna wrote on Facebook, per Big Lead Sports. “By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’ Wikipedia page. 6 kids. 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a Hall of Fame player! A true role model!”

This won’t be the last time that we hear about Ray Lewis’ murder trial in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl and it shouldn’t be either.

Lewis is no doubt an incredible football player, but for us to idolize him and praise him for his career on the field while ignoring the past murder charges is doing the lost lives of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar an injustice.

    And to Anna I say: Shut the F up. The courts have already taken care of this. I know you’re not at all concerned about the lives of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar but that your husband lost in a football game.
    The only thing you’re known for is marrying a football player and winning miss Hooters International in 2005. In other words you’re all washed up and angry about it.

    Just to set the record straight, Ray Lewis had no responsibility at all for the two deaths. How do I know? I was the lead defense attorney for one of the persons who was found not guilty by the jury. Ray did not pay anyone off and in fact testified for the prosecution.

      Um, yeah. I’ll believe a defense attorney. Lots of murders go unsolved, not because we don’t know who’s guilty, but because there’s not enough evidence to convict. That doesn’t make someone “innocent,” despite what the legal profession says.

          With all due respect, Mr. Sadow, the statements of defense attorneys and criminals do not, in my opinion, constitute “the truth.” “The truth” is that two people were murdered, and no one has been held accountable. That’s criminal in itself.

      Most defense attorneys are dirtier than the criminals the represent…

    There are thousands of professional athletes who have committed crimes. People just want to focus on those past events when the athletes do well. Wonder how much trash talk there would be if it were the Steelers, another team with some great role models. People shouldn’t pull out old sh*t just cause their team didnt win, your opinion isnt gonna do anything but make u sound like a spiteful douche.

    • YaGottaLuvTheSun

      “There are thousands of professional athletes who have committed crimes.” Not only is that a laughable statement, but a very small percentage who HAVE committed crimes have committed murder, and even fewer have gotten away with it. I’m sure you’re not related to the murdered — so who cares, right? As long as said athlete dances, and preens on the sidelines and pretends to cry (while laughing inside that he got away with murder). You’re opinion isn’t going to do anything but make you sound like a heartless, mindless, ignorant moron.
