Josina Anderson asked free agent RB Ray Rice for his thoughts on a possible opportunity with the Patriots after they lost Dion Lewis for the season, to which he replied: “Same as before. Would be grateful for opportunity anywhere.“
Anderson also asked him what type of shape he’s in: “Playing shape. I never stopped working out.”
Pro Football Talk notes that Patriots owner Robert Kraft said last year he’d be “shocked” if Rice ever plays in the NFL again, so it’s unlikely that New England would be serious option for him.
