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.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday suspended running back Ray Rice indefinitely after a new video surfaced that shows the player punching his future wife in an elevator in February, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said on Twitter. The incident had originally led Goodell to suspend the New Rochelle native for the first two games of the regular season.
