Latest News

Recent News reports the running back-needy Lions will not be signing free agent Ray Rice.
Lions coach Jim Caldwell, WR Anquan Boldin, and DT Haloti Ngata all have a history with Rice, but Rice isn't on Detroit's radar despite the loss of Ameer Abdullah (foot surgery) to I.R. The Lions worked out free agent Joique Bell earlier this week. They also have onetime preseason star Zach Zenner on the roster. Sep 21 - 9:01 PM

Ex-NFL RB Ray Rice released an intense training video of himself working out in a Connecticut gym.

In the video, Rice wears an oxygen mask as he demonstrates his vertical explosion and agility with a trainer tossing tennis balls back and forth for Rice to retrieve. Rice has also pledged to donate his game checks if an NFL team gives him another chance. Some teams have flirted with the idea of looking at Rice and made those flirtations public, but the response wasn't positive, and Rice was never signed. He's been out of the league since the 2013 season.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports there's a "growing sense" free agent Ray Rice "might get a chance" to play this season.

It's been nearly three years since Rice's last carry, while he turns 30 in January. Unlike Greg Hardy, Rice has gone to great lengths to apologize, but it's still hard to believe anyone will be willing to take the plunge. Rice was already declining before his off-the-field life spiraled out of control. We are not expecting to see Rice in 2016, or any year for that matter.

Free agent Ray Rice says he'd donate his entire salary to domestic violence charities if signed for the 2016 season.

"All the scrutiny that I’ve got, it was deserved, because domestic violence is a horrible thing," Rice said. "Me donating my salary is something that’ll be from the heart for me. I only want to play football so I can end it the right way for my kids and for the people that really believed in me." Rice's comments come a week after he admitted his career is probably over. Now 29, Rice's last carry came in Dec. 2013.

Free agent Ray Rice admits he probably won't get another chance in the NFL.

"I’m training, but I’m more training for life," Rice said. "I think it’s safe to say that football. ... I don’t want to ever say I’m giving up, because that’s never going to be me. ... I'm happy. I’m in the best shape of my life, and I know if it doesn’t happen this year, it’s probably something I have to deal with. But you know what? It’s not the end of my life. I know that the window for playing is closing. But if my window closes, I’m going to make sure I open up a thousand more opportunities for kids, to give them an opportunity to pick up where I left off. ... But I don’t want it to end that way, it’s safe to say." Rice is 29 and hasn't been able to sniff a job in the league since his domestic violence video hit the internet.

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.

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.
Jan 19 - 9:48 PM

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.
Wed, Aug 19, 2015 11:44:00 AM

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.
Thu, Aug 13, 2015 07:58:00 PM

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.
Thu, Aug 13, 2015 02:07:00 PM

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.
