Ray Rice Suspended Without Pay For Two Games and Fined An Additional Game Check For Violating NFL Personal Conduct Policy

COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL notified Baltimore Ravens running back RAY RICE today that he will be suspended without pay for the first two 2014 regular season games and fined an additional game check for conduct detrimental to the NFL in violation of the league’s Personal Conduct Policy for his February arrest.

In May, Rice resolved the charges by entering into a pretrial intervention program. Under this program, he will not be prosecuted and is not required to serve jail time or pay any fine. After one year, the charges will be expunged and will not be part of Rice’s record.

Following this agreement, Goodell met with Rice and his wife.  Despite the court’s decision not to impose criminal punishment, the Commissioner determined, as he advised Rice, that the conduct was incompatible with NFL policies and warranted disciplinary action.

In a letter to Rice, Commissioner Goodell stated:

“As you acknowledged during our meeting, your conduct was unquestionably inconsistent with league polices and the standard of behavior required of everyone who is part of the NFL. The league is an entity that depends on integrity and in the confidence of the public and we simply cannot tolerate conduct that endangers others or reflects negatively on our game. This is particularly true with respect to domestic violence and other forms of violence against women.

“You will be expected to continue to take advantage of the counseling and other professional services you identified during our meeting. As you noted, this additional assistance has been of significant benefit to you and your wife, and it should remain a part of your practice as appropriate.

“I believe that you are sincere in your desire to learn from this matter and move forward toward a healthy relationship and successful career. I am now focused on your actions and expect you to demonstrate by those actions that you are prepared to fulfill those expectations.”

Rice’s suspension will begin on August 30. He will be eligible for reinstatement on Monday, September 12 following the Ravens’ game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rice may participate in all aspects of training camp and preseason games.

Rice may appeal this decision within three days.

NFL Training Camps Open This Week; Bills, Ravens and 49ers Rookies First in Today

Back to work!

NFL clubs will begin their on-field preparations for Kickoff 2014 this week, starting today with the Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers as their rookies report. Buffalo’s veterans will follow on Saturday, July 19, as the Bills become the first team to fully begin training camp. By Sunday, July 27, every NFL team will be in camp.

More and more, teams are training at their regular-season headquarters. This year, more than half the league (18 of 32, 56 percent) will be “staying home” for training camp. In 2000, only five of 31 (16 percent) teams stayed close to home.

The numbers may prove home-base popularity is a growing league-wide trend, but there are still teams employing the “old-time” philosophy of encamping away.

The Minnesota Vikings are one of the teams that “come together” away from home (Minnesota State University, Mankato in Mankato, Minnesota).

“It’s a beautiful setup, the facilities are outstanding,” says Minnesota head coach MIKE ZIMMER of the Vikings’ training camp site in Mankato. “We’re excited to get going in Mankato.”

The NFL training camp longevity king? The Green Bay Packers, who return on July 25 for their 57th consecutive summer at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin.

New Orleans will conduct portions of their training camp away from the Saints’ training facility in Metairie, Louisiana for the first time since 2009. The Saints will hold training camp this year at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

“By splitting training camp between New Orleans and The Greenbrier, we will have a great opportunity to further enhance our training camp in 2014,” says Saints head coach SEAN PAYTON. “We all understand the importance of training camp and ultimately, that’s to get the team ready for the regular season. As far as the time we will spend at The Greenbrier, it offers a tremendous opportunity to our team in a more moderate summer climate.”
