FameRank: 8

"Raymell Mourice "Ray" Rice" is a professional American football running back who is currently a free agent. He played college football for Rutgers Scarlet Knights football/Rutgers University and was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He is ranked as the Ravens' second all-time leading rusher behind Jamal Lewis (7,801) with 6,180 yards, and is also second in rushing attempts (1,430) and rushing touchdowns (37), and third in combined touchdowns(43).

Rice was arrested and subsequently indicted for third-degree aggravated assault on March 27, 2014, relating to an incident where he punched his then-fiancée (now wife) in the face. The blow knocked her unconscious. The incident became a prominent controversy after TMZ released a video of the encounter, which led to an NFL policy change regarding how it handles domestic violence cases. Rice's contract was terminated by the Ravens on September 8, 2014, following the release of an additional video of the incident. Rice appealed his indefinite suspension by the NFL in Federal Court, and won. As of December 1, 2014, Rice is a free agent who is eligible to play in the NFL with any team willing to sign him.

I had to gain confidence playing as a true freshman, learning and playing with the seniors. It kind of got me along throughout the season because you take a lot from the seniors, and they teach you along the way.

This game was fun, obviously. But I did see them as another opponent today.

Just stay consistent. That's my goal. And not going backward. I think you get looked upon even more when you're very consistent. I think looking back on last year it's something you can cherish and that's something special.

He's my mentor. He's what I want to be in my future here at Rutgers. Going through ups and downs just him being the all around player that's what I want to be like. He's got a legacy that he's already built and he's still here being a great, tough, hard-nosed player.

I'm mad - I feel it for the seniors. This feeling, you don't want to feel like this anymore.

When you're playing as a true freshman, you just got to play the next play if you make a mistake. You just have to keep going and play through adversity.
