Ray Rice Released By Ravens In Wake Of Video Showing Punch

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Suspends Ray Rice Indefinitely

The Ravens released running back Ray Rice from his contract Monday after a new, graphic video emerged of him punching his former fiancée, now wife, in a hotel elevator in Atlantic City in February. The video raises fresh questions about N.F.L. Commissioner Roger Goodell’s handling of the situation. In July, the N.F.L. suspended Rice for the first two games of this season.

Up to this point Baltimore had not disciplined Rice in any publicly. The team made the announcement on its Twitter account Monday afternoon.
