Ravens terminate contract of Ray Rice-- Mon Sep 8 2:30 pm --
NFL suspends him indefinitely after TMZ releases casino video
The Baltimore Ravens terminated RB Ray Rice's contract on Monday, hours after TMZ released a video showing him punching his then-fiancee in the face in an Atlantic City hotel elevator in February.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Prior to Monday morning, the public had only had access to part of the casino video in which Rice was dragging his then-fiancee out of the elevator after the February incident. The new video really left the Ravens with no choice but to release the three-time Pro Bowler. From a football perspective, Baltimore will move forward with some combination of Bernard Pierce (benched in Week 1), Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro.
