Ray Rice Says He’ll Donate His Entire Salary to Domestic Violence Charities if Signed
Ray Rice hasn't played in the NFL since the 2013 season, before he was caught on video assaulting his fiancée Janay Palmer in an elevator. Ray and Janay made up and got married. He apologized. He served his suspension. And now he wants another shot at the NFL.
All the scrutiny that I've got, it was deserved, because domestic violence is a horrible thing. 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. There's a lot of people affected by domestic violence, and every dollar helps. My heart is about finishing the right way and helping people along the way.
If a team does sign Rice, it would probably be for close to the league minimum, which is $885,000 for a seven-year veteran like him. It's unclear whether any teams have expressed interest at this point.
