Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has declared that he is “done with football”.
Rice was released by the Ravens in 2014 after a video surfaced of him punching his then girlfriend and now wife Janay Rice. Following his suspension and release, Rice was never signed by another NFL team.
Rice has empathy for another NFL running back that has found himself in a similar situation. Rice says he sees similarities between his situation and former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt.
In a nearly identical circumstance Hunt was seen on video abusing a woman in a Cleveland hotel. Once the video was made public in late November, Hunt was cut by the Chiefs an suspended by the NFL.
Despite the incident Ray and Janay Rice got married which Rice calls his “second chance” and is happy to be done with the NFL.
As to whether Hunt deserves a second chance to play in the NFL, Rice is withholding judgment saying he wants to know Hunt as a person first before making that call.
