With Ray Rice being a free agent and available at this time, will anyone jump on grabbing the former star running back of the Baltimore Ravens. We know that the Ravens will most likely not be in the bidding, but there are a couple of teams that might be playoff bound that could use the additional push from the backfield.
ESPN sources report that four teams are interested in Ray Rice, although only two teams have agreed to have their names publicly named. The Indianapolis Colts are one team. With their running back situation in question, Rice could be a fit with the Colts. New Orleans is also another possible landing spot for the once Raven. The Saints do have a banged up backfield and are trying to win the NFC South as well.
Rice is coming off of a not so stellar year and has not played football since the beginning of this year in training camp. The right team will have to emerge if Rice is going to sign a contract by the end of the year, which is still a possibility.
As far as the other 2 teams not mentioned, could the Buffalo Bills be one of them? It is a possibility and with Fred Jackson just coming off injury and C.J. Spiller still injured and not being able to be available until the 16th week and no guarantee that he will be back, Buffalo might be in the market for another back to help secure their backfield just for injuries at this point. Bryce Brown, Boobie Dixon and Fred Jackson are able to move the ball on the ground, but with inconsistencies with Brown, and Jackson’s health just getting back to 100%, the Bills may just take a look at Rice.
