Shamed former Baltimore Ravens star running-back Ray Rice is currently in discussions with lawyers as he attempts to challenge the NFL’s decision to ban him indefinitely.

Ray Rice was released by the Ravens and suspended by the NFL after a video of his domestic assault on his then fiancé, now wife, Janay Rice was published by TMZ last week.

But Rice and his wife Janay are hell bent on finding a way for the running-back to return to the NFL as early as next season, according to reports.

It is understood that there are no shortage of attorneys who feel that Rice has more than a good chance of overturning the NFL’s decision. While it’s very unlikely that Rice would return this season, CBS Sports reported that Rice is about to go on the offensive against the NFL.

“The source said a player like Donte' Stallworth, involved in vehicular manslaughter cases the result of DUI, have been reinstated in a similar timeframe, and would be a precedent any potential Rice legal team would focus on,” CBS Sports reported.

“Furthermore, the lawyers would argue that this video has been in existence since the night of the incident itself, that it was seen and documented by various law enforcement officials who described Rice punching his wife and knocking her unconscious in the police report, and that two of Rice's direct bosses -- coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome -- have said that Rice gave them a thorough and graphic account of what he did to his wife.”
