Following shocking video of running back Ray Rice beating his wife, and his subsequent termination by the Baltimore Ravens, EA Sports has rightfully decided to cut him from their virtual Madden 15 roster. EA's decision, however, is just the latest news of its kind, as virtually all of Rice's sponsors distance themselves from the Ravens pariah. For instance, Nike has also stopped all endorsement deals with Rice, and his team is allowing fans to exchange Rice jerseys at team stores. With Rice currently serving an indefinite suspension, it's unlikely EA Sports or other brands will be bringing Rice back into the fold any time soon. Rice will be officially out of the game this Friday.
