More than a year after Ray Rice punched and knocked out his now-wife, Janay Rice, in an Atlantic City, N James Carpenter Jersey .J., casino elevator on Valentine's Day, the former Ravens running back divulged his troubling experience to the Baltimore Sun,speakingpublicly for just the second time since being released by Baltimore.The big picture of it all, being the person that I am, I really felt horrible, Rice said in his hour-long interview. You almost want to punish yourself. I know I'm never going to win the battle of public opinion. Honestly, I almost felt like at one point that it wasn't worth living. I see why people commit suicide.Just hours after a video of the a sault was released by TMZ last September, Rice was suspended indefinitely by NFL commi sioner Roger Goodell and cut by the Ravens. He initially received a two-game suspension, causing a storm of criticism. Josh McCown Jersey It hurt that bad, Rice said. I was low, real low. It hurt that bad because you worked your whole life to do all the right things and then you're the world's most hated person. It was really tough. My daughter, oh Lord, I grew up without a father, there's no way I could check out on my own family.Despite everything, Rice insists that he doesn't holdagrudgeagainstGoodell orthe Ravens and hopesfor another chance.Its tough, I realize thats a battle Im going to have to face for the rest of my life, Rice said. Time does heal everything, but I dont think people are going to forget this. I want people Austin Seferian-Jenkins Jersey to not forget about the incident, but I want people to see theres a human being on the other side. This is not a monster, a guy whos a repeat offender. Im not the guy they stereotype me to be. Im not excusing what I did.Im optimistic that Ill get a second chance. I dont think this boils down to whether I can play football or not. Obviously I know that. I just think theres so much more that comes with it. I know the PR side of it will be tough. I understand that.Rice, 27, became a free agent after being reinstated to the NFL in November, though he hasn' Bilal Powell Jersey t visited or worked out with any NFL teams.
