Just when you thought that the NFL tale of Ray Rice was over, the troubled runningback has made a re-emergence.

Rice - who hasn't played in the league since being released by the Baltimore Ravens in 2014 has made a return to his former team.

Speaking from experience

Rice was indefinitely suspended from the NFL following the release of a video which saw him attacking his former fiancee - although his suspension was soon overturned.

Well Rice has finally made his return to the NFL and to the Ravens, but it is not as he will have hoped to have returned.

Rice has not returned as a player, but as a teacher as he delivered a speech to the Ravens' rookie class of 2016.

Rice delivered a life lesson to the new Ravens' players in which he even discussed the events that saw his NFL career come to an abrupt end.

"[Rice] delivered an important message that included his story, both the good and the bad ... He clearly had the attention of our rookies." - Ravens statement on Rice's lesson

Rice clearly has a lot of wisdom and advice that he can pass on to the Ravens' locker room about how important it is to be good both on and off the field.

It may be far too late for Rice and he may regret those events in 2014 for the rest of his life, but he certainly has done a lot in recent years to try and rebuild his name.

Despite being eligible for some time now, Rice hasn't been picked up by any team despite many teams having needed a runningback during his absence.

The former Ravens star has remained positive about his NFL future since his suspension and he has on many different occasions said that he believes he will play again.

A new year ahead

The Ravens have began their off-season workouts and they will surely be hoping for a better year in 2016 than they had in 2015.

The Ravens finished 5-11 last season after a long string of injuries saw their team dip n overall quality as the season progressed.

However with the surprise return of wide receiver Steve Smith and a promising draft class coming in, the Ravens could once again be set to challenge for the AFC North title - although it will be a very tall task.
