Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has support from the higher ups in the NFL as he attempts to make his return to the league in the continued wake of his arrest for domestic violence on Feb. 15, 2014, reports Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com.
Rice has not even received an invitation to work out with an NFL team, but VP of football operations Troy Vincent would express confidence in him if a team reached out to the league’s front office.
According to La Canfora, the league has been impressed with how Rice has handled himself since the incident. He has been mentoring at-risk children and promoting education on domestic violence issues.
NFL coaches and executives contacted over the last few months have said that they would bring in Rice for a workout, according La Canfora, but nothing serious has taken place yet.
Rice is hoping to find an opportunity to play on a minimum contract.
