Domestic violence is an ever present problem in the NFL and those who have been unfortunate enough to be involved in a case are never far from the headlines.

One such player is Dallas Cowboys' defensive line-man Greg Hardy who was suspended the first four games of the 2015 season due to the issue.

Time to listen?

Since Hardy returned to the league, he has been involved in arguments with coaches and numerous outbursts which have left the team somewhat embarrassed.

There are those who feel that Hardy doesn't deserve a place in the NFL after he has shown very little remorse for his actions.

Perhaps it is time for Hardy to take a little advice, but who should he really listen to on this subject?

Well has been given some advice by a man with a history of domestic violence and who is still paying for his past indiscretions. 

Former Baltimore Ravens runningback Ray Rice is still out of the NFL after he was banned following the release of footage that showed him striking his former fiancée in an elevator.

Rice has been talking about Hardy's situation on WFAN's "Boomer and Cartoon show" and what he believes is...

"You have to be sincere in your actions ... Show it on and off the field. Take that uniform and use it for what it’s worth." Rice's advice to Hardy

Rice, who still lives in the Baltimore area has used his time away from the NFL try and help the local community and has become quite a rehabilitated character ... even if NFL teams don't think so.

Rice also had one final piece of advice for Hardy.

"One thing I would encourage Greg [to do] is to take a deeper look into what the severity of domestic violence is."

Any way back for Ray?

Rice is still harbouring dreams of an NFL return but it is looking less and less likely with each team that pass on him for other free agents.

The Cowboys have been a rumoured landing spot for Rice all year but have taken other options every time.

Will Rice ever get a second chance? Only time will tell, but for right now, he seems determined to continue to rebuild his image.
