Ray Rice’s NFL Career Likely Over, CFL Not An Option


Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports that former Ravens RB Ray Rice‘s NFL career is likely over now that he’s been released.

According to Glazer, the overall outrage appears to be too much for any team to offer him another opportunity at an NFL career.

Meanwhile, CFL commissioner Mark Cohon has already ruled out the idea of Rice playing in Canada after he released a statement on Monday.

Cohon said that the CFL will honor the NFL’s suspension, despite the fact that he’s no longer under contract with an NFL team.

The Canadian Press reports that the CFL head office has already distributed an email to their teams, which says that they will not be allowed to sign Rice to a contract.

Josh Gordon tried to play in the CFL following his year-long suspension, but the fact that he’s under contract with the Browns prevent him from playing in Canada. The CFL has allowed suspended players like former Colts WR LaVon Brazill to play in the league, however, his suspension did not come from a domestic abuse situation.

All things considered, this news really isn’t all that surprising to see football opportunities drying up for the former Pro Bowl running back.
