Well, this is interesting. Two months after Ray Rice was cut by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely from the NFL for beating his then-fiancé in an elevator, the 27-year old football athlete has been given the right to “play immediately” if signed by a new team.
A statement by NFL spokesman Greg Aiello stated:
“Ray Rice is a free agent and has been eligible to be signed by an NFL team since he was released by the Ravens. Based on Judge Jones’ decision, he will be eligible to play upon signing a new contract.”
