Ray Rice has been reinstated to the NFL. He was initially suspended indefinitely from the NFL for a domestic violence altercation that he had with his wife earlier this year that resulted in him being fired from the Baltimore Ravens and being fined. His initial punishment from the NFL was two games when a video surfaced of the incident that showed him dragging his then incapacitated fiancee’ Janay Rice out of a hotel elevator. Then a few months later, an extended video of the altercation appeared that shows him spitting and punching his wife. The latest video caused the NFL to change their ruling of his punishment from 2 games to the entire season as well as his team releasing him from his current contract. An outside arbitrator ruled that Ray Rice never lied about the incident prior to the video and since the NFL already punished him with a two game suspension, it was unlawful for the NFL to change their ruling on his punishment after one was already given. Mr. Rice is now able to sign with any NFL team. Click the link to check out the interview with Ray Rice and his family after being reinstated.
