OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will make his first public statement since being released from jail on murder charges in a news conference Thursday.

Attorney Jana Harris says Lewis will speak at 3 p.m. at the Ravens' training complex in Owings Mills.

It's unclear whether anyone from the Ravens or members of Lewis' legal team will speak at that time.

Lewis is free on $1 million bond after spending 15 days in jail in Atlanta.

On Tuesday, a smiling Lewis left jail on $1 million bond Tuesday, slipped into a car and rode away with his lawyers, mother and fiancee.

"Thank God to be out!" said the Baltimore Ravens' linebacker, who was wearing a brown football jersey with the word "Supreme" on the back.

Lewis is free for the first time since Jan. 31, when he was charged with murdering two men after a Super Bowl party earlier that day.

He was scheduled to return home to Baltimore on Wednesday.
