FILE - In this May 1, 2014, file photo, Baltimore Ravens football player Ray Rice holds hands with his wife, Janay, as they arrive at the Atlantic County Criminal Courthouse in Mays Landing, N.J. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell initially suspended Rice for two games after he was charged with third-degree aggravated assault for hitting his then-fiancee in an elevator in Atlantic City. The couple married a month later. Rice was cut by the Ravens in September 2014 after a video emerged showing him knocking her unconscious and dragging her from the elevator. Goodell then suspended Rice indefinitely and the league implemented its new policy. Rice pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault and applied to a program for first-time offenders. A neutral arbitrator vacated Rice's suspension in November but the three-time Pro Bowl pick hasn't played in the league again. (AP Photo/Mel Evans, File)
