The NFL world was shaken on Friday when it was announced that former Baltimore Ravens Runningback Ray Rice had won his appeal against his indefinite suspension from the NFL.
Rice instantly became available to be signed by any NFL team and there are now two questions surrounding the former Ravens star.
Rice was trending on Twitter across America within minutes of the announcement and his ruling has opened hope up for another currently suspended NFL star - Adrian Peterson.
Everyone is wondering two things about Rice:
- Will any team actually want to sign him?
- When could we see him back in the NFL?
Two big questions that no-one may know the answer to right now, but needless to say there are many teams who could use his services right now.
- Fired star wins court battle against the NFL
- True freshman runs over opponent in Adrian Peterson style TD score
- Seahawks and Eagles set to dominate in Week 13
Troubled teams such as the Oakland Raiders and New York Jets are without doubt the names that many will look at.
But could it be possible that a team a lot higher in the standings could have use for a player like Rice?
What're they getting?
Along with a lot of controversial press and an issue that could divide any locker room, there are a lot of benefits that would come with a team signing Ray Rice.
Rice has only ever played for the Ravens in the NFL and since his rookie year back in 2008, has amassed 80 starts in the league.
With 37 rushing touchdowns, six receiving touchdowns and over 6,000 career rushing yards, Rice could be an effective weapon for any offense.
The three time pro-bowler and former Super Bowl champion brings a wealth of experience with him and I view him as a good option for some teams who may just need a little extra as they look to improve their Super Bowl push.
