Ozzie Newsome Says Ray Rice Still Big Part Of Ravens

Ray Rice, Luck


After being arrested in Atlantic City Friday night for an assault on his fiancé, Ray Rice has one less worry… his position with the Baltimore Ravens.

Today, Ravens GM, Ozzie Newsome, met with coach Jim Harbaugh and other team officials, and told the Baltimore Sun, Ray Rice is still in the Ravens 2014 plans.

“When I left my office 20 minutes ago, and John had probably been there 15 minutes before then, Ray Rice was still a big part of what we plan to do in 2014,” Newsome said.

“I don’t know the situation,” Newsome said. “I’ve only gotten what has been written. I have not had a chance to talk to Ray. I have had a chance to talk to [director of team security] Darren [Sanders]. I really don’t know that situation. With me, I get all the answers. Then that’s when we make decisions within this organization, once we get all the information we can get.”

Ray Rice and his fiancé have both reported no injuries and declined medical attention. Rice’s attorneys are calling the incident a “very minor physical altercation”.
