A source tells ESPN's Ed Werder that the Cardinals have "no interest" in free agent RB Ray Rice.
The Cardinals appear set with Marion Grice, Stepfan Taylor, Michael Bush and Robert Hughes behind Andre Ellington (questionable, hip). Rice would be a really tough sell anyway as a PR nightmare with a declining skill set. We wouldn't expect anyone to give him a chance until 2015. Dec 2 - 9:37 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports four teams, including the Colts and Saints, have "looked into signing" free agent Ray Rice.

The other two teams weren't identified. The Colts have been mentioned as a possibility since Rice won his appeal Friday. However, the Saints are a new team, though we don't really see a fit. Running back is one of the deepest positions on New Orleans' squad, and Rice isn't worth the trouble. We'd guess Rice's odds of suiting up this season are far less than 50:50. He looked done in 2013.
Nov 30 - 8:03 AM

Free agent Ray Rice has won his appeal and will be reinstated to the NFL.

He's free to sign with any team. Unfortunately, finding a taker is an even bigger hurdle for Rice than winning his appeal, which was expected. A team interested in the declining 28-year-old (in January) would likely have to embrace a major public relations hit after Rice was suspended for socking his drunken then-fiancee in an elevator. Rice hasn't been effective on the field in quite some time. There's no guarantee he is still capable of helping a team.

A source tells ESPN's Ed Werder that the Colts have no interest in free agent Ray Rice even if Rice is reinstated.

A judge is tentatively expected to rule that the NFL must reinstate Rice within the next two weeks. At that point, he'll be free to sign with any team as a free agent. The Colts are certainly desperate for a back with Rice's skill set in the wake of Ahmad Bradshaw's injury, but they're not going to take the PR hit and we doubt any other team will either. Rice's best chance to get back on the field will be in 2015, a full year removed from the release of the heinous videotape that rocked the league.
Nov 18 - 9:40 AM

SI's Peter King says it's unlikely the NFL will be able to keep Ray Rice suspended.

In about two weeks, judge Barbara Jones is expected to rule that the NFL must reinstate Rice. He'll then be allowed to sign with any team as a free agent. However, King isn't hearing anything about interested teams and we'd be shocked if Rice found a taker. He was rapidly declining on the field and signing him would be a colossal PR hit.

Ray Rice's appeal of his indefinite suspension has been set for November 5-6.

CBS' Jason La Canfora reported Sunday that Rice is viewed as having an "exceedingly strong" case, and could be reinstated by mid-November. Rice maintains that he didn't lie about his domestic-violence arrest in his initial interview with commissioner Roger Goodell, and believes he shouldn't have been subject to more than a six-game ban. Rice should have resolution in little more than two weeks.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports suspended RB Ray Rice could be reinstated by mid-November.

"An appeal hearing date has been set, with a final decision expected to come in an expeditious manner thereafter, and all of that could be resolved by mid-November," writes La Canfora. Rice maintains he didn't lie in his initial hearing with Roger Goodell, arguing he should only be suspended a maximum of six games as a first-time offender. Many believe Rice has an "exceedingly strong" case, and he could be available to sign with a team within four weeks. La Canfora wonders if the Colts and Patriots may be interested clubs.

Sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter that free agent Ray Rice's appeal will argue the videotape from the elevator was edited.

Rice is trying to get his indefinite suspension overturned, but it likely doesn't matter anyway. No team is going to take the public relations hit that would come with picking him up. Regardless, Rice is arguing that the TMZ video was a cleaned-up, whittled down and condensed version of the events that took place in the Atlantic City casino elevator.

The NFLPA has officially filed an appeal on Ray Rice's indefinite suspension.

"The NFLPA appeal is based on supporting facts that reveal a lack of a fair and impartial process, including the role of the office of the Commissioner of the NFL. We have asked that a neutral and jointly selected arbitrator hear this case as the Commissioner and his staff will be essential witnesses in the proceeding and thus cannot serve as impartial arbitrators," reads the statement. It's just a formality at this point. Rice's hearing should be held within 10 days. Even if his suspension is reduced, Rice won't be playing in the NFL this season.
Sep 16 - 9:14 PM

Free agent RB Ray Rice will appeal his indefinite suspension Monday.

The NFLPA, along with an outside lawyer retained by Rice, will handle the appeal. It's a no-brainer for the player's union to get involved despite the stomach-turning nature of Rice's crime as They don't want to allow a precedent to get set. Regardless, Rice is almost certainly done in the NFL because his on-field decline isn't worth the off-field issues he now comes with.
Sep 14 - 9:02 PM

Appearing on CBS Evening News Tuesday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell left open the possibility of suspended RB Ray Rice eventually being reinstated.

"I don't rule that out, but we would have to be fully confident he is addressing this issue," Goodell said. Goodell also brushed off the idea that he should resign. "No, I'm used to the criticism, I'm used to that. Every day I have to earn my stripes." Still only 27, Rice should have some football left if/when he's reinstated, but his reputation has become so toxic that it's doubtful any team would want to take the plunge.
Sep 9 - 7:06 PM

The NFL has suspended Ray Rice indefinitely.

Commissioner Roger Goodell handed down the ban based on "new video evidence that became available today." In other words, the NFL is insisting that they never saw the elevator video until it went viral Monday morning. Rice's career was already on thin ice as it's unlikely any team would take the PR hit that comes with signing him, and now he'll have to apply for reinstatement even if a team does want him. The smart money is on Rice never playing another snap in the NFL.
Sep 8 - 2:51 PM

Ravens released RB Ray Rice.

The move comes hours after video surfaced of Rice's brutal February assault of his fiancée (and now wife). The Ravens had previously shown unconditional support for their longtime No. 1 back, but Yahoo's Dan Wetzel reports Rice's version of events "didn't match with the video." In other words, he lied to the team and commissioner Roger Goodell. It's still disconcerting that all parties involved knew Rice had knocked out his fiancée, but weren't sufficiently shocked until seeing the video. Considering the mounting outrage against the league's handling of domestic violence and Rice's declining on-field play, it's quite possible he's played his final NFL snap. The Ravens will roll with Justin Forsett, Bernard Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro going forward. Forsett appears poised to carry the mail against the Steelers on Thursday.

Yahoo! Sports' Dan Wetzel has been "texting with team officials around the NFL," and the belief around the league is that the Ravens will release Ray Rice.

We don't typically use Wetzel as a source, but his words are worth noting. Multiple team officials believe the Ravens simply "have to" release Rice after the video of him knocking out his then-fiancee in a hotel elevator in February came to light Monday. If the Ravens were to keep Rice rostered, pay him, and play him, they'd face severe backlash. Current and ex-NFL players have already taken to Twitter calling for Rice's head. There's a chance Rice may get cut and never play again.
Sep 8 - 12:13 PM

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says the NFL had not seen the video of Ray Rice knocking out his then-fiancee in a New Jersey elevator when it suspended Rice two games for domestic violence.

A new video was leaked Monday that showed Rice and then-fiancee (now wife) Janay Palmer in a New Jersey hotel casino elevator. Rice throws a left hook to Palmer's face, knocking her out cold before dragging her limp body out of the elevator. Multiple media outlets have suggested that the NFL could re-open the case against Rice. He's eligible to return to the team on Friday, following the Ravens' Week 2 game on Thursday night. Commissioner Roger Goodell could hand down further discipline. Rice is lucky he isn't in jail.
