Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis believes crime would increase if there is no NFL season.
"Do this research if we don't have a season -- watch how much evil, which we call crime, watch how much crime picks up if you take away our game," Lewis told ESPN.
Asked why he believes there would be a rise in crime if the NFL lockout erases the coming season, Lewis indicated that fans wouldn't have football as an alternative.
"There's nothing else to do," he told ESPN.
Lewis also addresses the labor situation and his potential role in it in the interview.
