Every week seems to bring a new NFL drama. This week it’s Tom Brady’s turn (again). But despite the focus on deflategate, there’s another scandal-plagued football player being discussed in ESPN circles: Ray Rice.
According to the sports network, a non-profit group that combats violence against women is calling for the former Ravens running back to get a second chance. “We have been around a lot of abusive men, but our experience with Ray has been tremendously positive,” said Tony Porter, co-founder of A Call To Men, a group that calls on men to end violence against women, and which has been working with Rice since last fall. “We feel strongly about him having the opportunity of having a second chance. He’s deserving of it.”
Whether there’s a team out there that would be willing to take on the media spotlight involved in having Rice on their team is another story.
