One of the big story lines of Sunday's Super Bowl XLVII is it will mark the final game of Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis' NFL career. But former Michigan receiver Amani Toomer isn't a fan of the spectacle.

"It's definitely all about him," Toomer, a former NFL player whose Giants lost to Lewis and the Ravens in Super Bowl XXXV, told USA Today. "Once a guy goes to the center of the field, goes into the victory formation on the last play of his last home game … I just don't think the Giants or any organization I've ever been a part of, even growing up, would allow somebody to single themselves out like that.

"If you single yourself out after you make a play, that's one thing. But to walk out on the field reminds me of the WWE, like The Rock coming out. You're becoming a caricature of yourself. It's exhausting. I don't know why somebody would want that."

Toomer, who now works for NBC Sports Radio, also brought up Lewis' past, which includes pleading guilty to obstruction of justice as part of a plea bargain in a double murder case in 2000.

"If you want to say you're Mr. Religious and all of that, have a clean record," Toomer told USA Today. "Don't say all of that stuff if you know there's stuff that might come back. Those are the things that, when I look at him, I just think hypocrisy."
