Release of Ray Rice report coming 'sooner rather than later'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Former FBI director Robert Mueller III is "being thorough" and "getting closer" to completing his investigation into the NFL's handling of the Ray Rice domestic violence incident, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mueller "has interviewed every female employee at the NFL office," the report said.

One league source predicted the report will be released "sooner rather than later," per Schefter. Giants owner John Mara and Steelers owner Art Rooney updated their colleagues during the owners' meeting in Dallas.

The NFL initially suspended Rice two games, then suspended him indefinitely following the release of a video showing Rice knocking out his then-fiancee in a casino elevator. A judge overturned the indefinite suspension and Rice is free to sign with any team.

Rice spent his first six years with the Ravens, producing four 1,000-yard rushing seasons.


Unsigned Ray Rice seeks 'second chance' from NFL team


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2014) Former Ravens running back Ray Rice told NBC's Matt Lauer he hopes another NFL team is willing to "look deeper into who I am and realize that me and my wife had one bad night, and I took full responsibility for it."

Rice gave the interview after a judge overturned his indefinite suspension from the league. He's free to sign with any team. Rice was caught on video knocking his then-fiancee unconscious in an Atlantic City hotel elevator in February.

"One thing about my punishment and everything going along with anything that happened is that I've accepted it," Rice said on the "Today' show. "I went fully forward with it. I never complained, or I never did anything like that. I took full responsibility for everything that I did, and the only thing I can hope for and wish for is a second chance."

Rice acknowledged he made a "horrendous mistake" by not apologizing to his wife, Janay, in the press conference following the incident.

"I was nervous, and that was the first time we were available to speak," he said. "And I made a horrendous mistake not apologizing to my wife.

"We were given what to speak about. It wasn't truly coming from us, if you can understand, but I made that clear in my last time I was able to speak that my wife is an angel. She can do no wrong. I take full responsibility for my actions."

Rice turns 28 in January. He produced four straight 1,000-yard rushing seasons before running for 660 yards and averaging a career-low 3.1 yards per carry in 2013.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

La Canfora: Ray Rice still looks like a feature back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Ravens running back Ray Rice "is in better shape than a year ago, he looks better shifting laterally, and seems to have more burst," reports CBS Sports Insider Jason La Canfora.

"I'm not saying that he's going to be exactly the guy he was, say, in his first three years in the league. But I expect he will be granted every opportunity to succeed in the regular season, when he returns from suspension, and I anticipate him getting the bulk of the carries and having a productive season as long as he's healthy," La Canfora added. "In Baltimore, it's become a bit of a cottage industry to write him off. I think the opposite."

La Canfora noted running back Bernard Pierce was a disaster in pass protection drills against the 49ers. He allowed that rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro could be a factor in short yardage and goal-line situations.
