Free agent RB Ray Rice spoke to the Ravens' rookies on Wednesday.
"He delivered an important message that included his story, both the good and the bad," the team said in a statement. "He clearly had the attention of our rookies." It was Rice's first trip back to Baltimore since his release. Now 29, Rice hasn't notched a carry since the 2013 season. A second chance doesn't appear to be in the cards. May 26 - 6:53 PM

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan said he "doesn't foresee" the team signing free agent Ray Rice.

Now that it's the offseason, Rice's name will again be linked with any team looking for running back help. Maccagnan admits the Jets discussed Rice, but they never seriously have considered signing him. The Jets are in the market for running backs with Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, and Stevan Ridley free agents.

Free agent RB Ray Rice reiterated Tuesday that he hopes to return to the NFL in 2016.

Reportedly still "training his ass off," 29-year-old Rice is currently mentoring players at the pre-draft NFLPA Bowl, a sort of AAA version of the Senior Bowl. "Honestly, I’m never going to give up," said Rice, who has been out of the NFL since September of 2014. "You don’t want to give up something you started. You want to finish the right way." The NFLPA gig will give Rice more access to NFL personnel, perhaps allowing him to endear himself to them. Still, Rice would need an NFL owner to sign off on his club giving Rice a contract. After being caught on camera punching out his wife, that may be a tall order.

Free agent RB Ray Rice is still hopeful of playing in the NFL again.

"Fitness is my life," Rice said. "I'm doing what I've got to do to get another shot." Rice has not been seriously linked with any team since the Browns declined to deny interest in August. His playing days are likely finished.

Speaking Sunday, Browns coach Mike Pettine refused to rule out signing free agent Ray Rice.

With Duke Johnson in the concussion protocol, the Browns are short at running back. It's the second time Pettine has passed up the opportunity to say the team isn't interested in Rice. Although Rice is now 28 and coming off a year where he didn't play, he leads a barren running back "market." Rice's addition would further muddle a backfield where the pecking order has been anything but clear.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci reports there's "zero chance" the Bills sign free agent Ray Rice.

Well, that was quick. There was a report earlier this morning that the Bills were having "internal discussions" about adding Rice to their backfield. With good news coming from LeSean McCoy's (hamstring) MRI and Karlos Williams expected back before Week 1, the Bills have opted to sign Cierre Wood instead of Rice and his baggage. Rice, 28, will continue to wait.

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports the Bills have begun "internal discussions on whether to explore" signing free agent RB Ray Rice.

In other words, this thing is at the very preliminary stage and doesn't mean Rice will get his long-awaited second chance from Buffalo. However, Rice and coach Rex Ryan were together in Baltimore in the early part of Rice's career, and Ryan has never been shy about taking a chance. Buffalo is in dire need of running back help with all five of LeSean McCoy, Fred Jackson, Karlos Williams, Bryce Brown, and Anthony Dixon hurt.

Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said Thursday he believes free agent Ray Rice is deserving of another chance.

This would indeed suggest the Browns have legitimately discussed signing Rice. Of Rice, Haslam said "I'd like to see him get another shot," but added for now the Browns are "seeing what the team's young running backs can do first." Rice seems to be inching closer and closer to at least getting a tryout.

Texans owner Bob McNair made it clear the team has no interest in signing free agent RB Ray Rice.

"I don’t know that he’s as good as any of the four we’ve got," McNair said. "I haven’t seen anybody else trying to sign him. I think that’s a pretty good indication of where he stands." These are harsh words from McNair, but they serve as a reminder Rice's off-field concerns are not the sole reason he has yet to find a team. Rice averaged just 3.1 yards per carry in 2013 and has not played a snap since last year's preseason. There is no guarantee Rice will even be competent if he gets back on the field.

Browns coach Mike Pettine says the team has discussed signing free agent Ray Rice.

"We’ve talked about it, but I don’t think we’re there at this point," Pettine said. It's an indictment of Isaiah Crowell, Duke Johnson and Terrance West, though it could just be a motivational ploy from a coach looking to shake up a young running back corps. Signing Rice would endanger West's roster spot. The 2014 pariah seems to be inching toward a second chance.

Coach Bruce Arians reiterated the Cardinals aren't interested in free agent Ray Rice.

The Cardinals weren't interested in Rice last season when injuries hit, and they're not interested now. Although Arizona has one of the least-inspiring running-back situations, Arians seems comfortable with a combination of Andre Ellington, rookie David Johnson and potential big back Robert Hughes.

The Houston Chronicle reports free agent Ray Rice is "likely not an option" for the Texans.

Owner Bob McNair "isn't expected to approve a pursuit of Rice" after he spent the 2014 season away from football following a domestic-violence incident. McNair has never been fond of taking on players with perceived character issues. For Rice, it's well past time for him to get another look after meeting all of his legal obligations. There's reportedly been some interest from unnamed teams.
Wed, Aug 5, 2015 08:47:00 AM

Free agent Ray Rice says he contemplated suicide during his year away from the NFL.

"It hurt that bad," Rice said. "I want people to not forget about the incident, but I want people to see there's a human being on the other side. This is not a monster, a guy who's a repeat offender. I'm not the guy they stereotype me to be. I'm not excusing what I did." Rice has come off as genuinely contrite in recent interviews, but it's yet to earn him a workout. Arian Foster's injury in Houston may be his best shot at earning a second chance, but there's yet to be any indication he's in the Texans' plans.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the Cowboys have "no interest" in free agent Ray Rice.

The Cowboys have been speculatively connected to Rice and Chris Johnson, but ESPN's Todd Archer previously tweeted those links are being made by "everybody but the Cowboys." Per the Star-Telegram's Charean Williams, the Cowboys "haven't ruled out signing a vet back, but not for at least a couple weeks." They want to see how Joe Randle, Darren McFadden, and Lance Dunbar look early in camp.

The co-founders of an anti-domestic violence group say free agent Ray Rice deserves another chance.

The pendulum of public opinion is starting to swing back in Rice's favor. "We have been around a lot of abusive men, but our experience with Ray has been tremendously positive," said Tony Porter of A CALL TO MEN. "We feel strongly about him having the opportunity of having a second chance. He's deserving of it." The problem is Rice's on-field ceiling isn't high enough to offset the public relations headache. ESPN's Adam Schefter says multiple teams have privately discussed bringing in Rice.
