Ray Rice CUT By Baltimore Ravens; NFL Suspends Him Indefinitely
The Baltimore Ravens have terminated Ray Rice’s contract.
A onetime star running back, Rice beat his now-wife Janay Palmer in a casino elevator back in February, and was subsequently suspended for only two games amid uproar that the punishment was too light.
On Monday, video of his attack on Palmer was leaked by TMZ (see below — warning: graphic).
Hours later, the team tweeted, “The #Ravens have terminated RB Ray Rice’s contract this afternoon.”
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell then announced that the league was suspending Rice indefinitely.
Seth Rogen called Rice a “piece of garbage” on Monday.
Watching the video, it’s hard to disagree.
The Ravens finally acted.
