Everyone deserves a second chance…right?
Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has won his appeal of his indefinite NFL suspension and has been reinstated to the NFL, ESPN reported.
U.S. Judge Barbara S. Jones, heard Rice’s appeal earlier this month, and concluded Rice did not lie or mislead the NFL, a source told ESPN investigative reporter, Don Van Natta Jr.
Rice is now qualified to sign with any NFL team.
Furthermore, Rice, was initially suspended for two games by the NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. However, the NFL made it indefinite on Sept 8 after a video of the running back hitting his wife — then fiancée — was released by TMZ, which violates the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
According to the Associated Press, Rice has also filed a separate wrongful termination lawsuit against the Ravens. In fact, he even helped them win the Super Bowl XLVII.
Rice, 27, rushed for 6,180 yards and 37 touchdowns in six seasons with Baltimore.
