According to multiple media reports, Ray Rice is officially allowed to sign with whichever NFL team wants him now.
A short time ago, several NFL reporters, including NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, began reporting that Rice won his recent appeal of the indefinite suspension that the league gave to him back in September. The NFL had suspended Rice indefinitely, but Rice and his lawyers argued that the league couldn't do that since they had already suspended him for two games at the start of the 2014-15 NFL season. So now, it sounds like Rice has been reinstated back into the NFL, effective immediately:
Of course, this doesn't mean that Rice will be back on the football field anytime soon. He's no longer a member of the Ravens, so he'll have to find a new team to sign him if he wants to start playing again. And there's no guarantee that any team will be willing to take a chance on him. But as of right now, he's eligible to make his return on an NFL team. So stay tuned to see if it actually happens.
