UNREAL: Ray Rice Wins Suspension Appeal and Can Immediately Sign With Any NFL Team

Published on November 28, 2014

Good luck finding someone who will sign you.

Former Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice has won the appeal of his indefinite suspension and can return to the field immediately in a decision that has sparked outrage across the world.

In an email to AP on Friday afternoon, National Football League Players Association spokesman, George Atallah, said: ‘I can only confirm the suspension has been vacated, effective immediately.’

Under the vacation, approved by former U.S. District Judge Barbara Jones, Rice is now eligible to sign with any NFL team – and can do so as soon as he receives an offer.

It comes two months after the footballer was suspended from the league indefinitely after he was filmed punching his wife, Janay Palmer, with his left fist in an elevator at an Atlantic City casino.

Within minutes of Judge Jones’s decision being publicly released, people across America, Britain and elsewhere had taken to social media to express their disgust at the verdict.

Hillary Nadler wrote: ‘It is unbelievable that Ray Rice is able to play again. I hope no one signs him,’ while Marty Coultas said: ‘Who’s gonna sign Ray Rice? No one. Not happening.’
