BREAKING: Baltimore Ravens Terminate Contract with Ray Rice (NFL Acts)

The Baltimore Ravens have severed ties with running back Ray Rice today, after new video surfaced that shows him punching his then fiancee in an elevator.

The NFL had suspended Rice for two games, the first of which was Sunday’s loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

At the time the first domestic violence video surfaced, back in May, the Ravens struck a note that struck many as far off-key.

 

The Ravens have scheduled an announcement for later today. Word is that Rice is finished.

 

 

Terminating him now does raise more questions about the NFL’s lenient treatment of him in the first place. In the first video, it was clear that he had been hitting his fiancee.

 

Rice has married Janay, the woman he is seen punching in the video.

Update: The NFL has suspended Rice indefinitely, so no other NFL team can sign him.

Update: ESPN’s Adam Schefter goes weapons free, blasts the NFL for claiming that today is the first time the league has seen the new tape.
