Ravens Terminate Contract Of Rice, NFL Suspends Him Indefinitely

San Francisco 49ers v Baltimore Ravens

Shortly after Ray Rice was rleased by the Ravens, the NFL announced he was suspended indefinitely.

The Ravens supported Rice as an organization in the immediate aftermath of the elevator incident back in March, but the release of this video changed their stance. The NFL said Monday that they had not seen the video during their investigation.

“We requested from law enforcement any and all information about the incident, including the video from inside the elevator. That video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today,” the league said in a statement released to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

Since Rice’s suspension, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced sweeping changes to the personal conduct policy concerning domestic violence cases. Violations regarding assault, battery, domestic violence or sexual assault that involve physical force “will be subject to a suspension without pay of six games for a first offense.” A second offense will result in banishment from the NFL for at least one year.

Goodell expressed regret about the league’s handling of Rice’s suspension in a letter to NFL owners on August 28th.
