The Baltimore Ravens terminated Ray Rice’s contract early Monday afternoon after a video was found of him hitting his wife. Rice had one more game where he couldn’t play due to his suspension, but that’s no longer needed as his termination takes effect immediately.
Baltimore backed Rice the entire time after the incident until the video arose today. The video showed clear evidence of Ray Rice punching his wife in the face. The NFL has also suspended Rice indefinitely.
I personally like the move by the Ravens here, not that I didn’t like Rice, but this just shows that as an organization they aren’t going to tolerate that sort of behavior which gives Baltimore a better image.
