Deer antler spray.

Yes, it’s the most random of substances, but in the case of Ray Lewis and the Ravens, it’s reared its head in New Orleans, as the retiring linebacker was asked about the breaking story about Lewis asking about using Deer Antler spray to try and recover faster.

According to a Sports Illustrated report, Lewis used deer antler spray that contains IGF-1, which is banned by the NFL, Kareem Copeland of NFL.com reports.

Lewis gave a quick reply at the Super Bowl Media Day on Tuesday that ended in a “next question.”

“Two years ago that was the same report,” Lewis said. “I wouldn’t give that report or him any of my press. He’s not worthy of that.”

The substance was supposedly provided by S.W.A.T. owner Mitch Ross. S.W.A.T. (Sports with Alternatives to Steroids) is a sports science company with imaginative means of performance enhancement.
