Former Ravens running back Ray Rice is hopeful for a second chance

riceRay Rice has been heavily scrutinized because of his actions in a New Jersey hotel elevator almost a year ago. Rice has admitted to hitting his girlfriend at the time Janay, and has since apologized numerous times to the NFL and the 32 teams/owners.  Well today in an very solid interview with Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, Rice says he is optimistic he will get a second chance with a team.

“I’m optimistic that I’ll get a second chance,” Rice said. “I don’t think this boils down to whether I can play football or not. Obviously I know that. I just think there’s so much more that comes with it. I know the PR side of it will be tough. I understand that. I just know that if a team that really truly genuinely looks at me and understood that this guy made a horrible mistake then they can structure a plan for me.”

Said Rice: “I don’t like to be singled out, I like to be part of the team, if they can understand that I’ll do anything to help the situation and go out and give them the best football I got, I think I’ll get a second chance.”

It is only a matter of time before Rice gets another chance, the biggest question is what team will be the team that gives him the opportunity?
