Baltimore Ravens Offer Fan Option To Exchange Ray Rice Jerseys
BALTIMORE, MD – SEPTEMBER 19: Baltimore Ravens fans stand in line to exchange the jersey of former running back Ray Rice #27 of the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on September 19, 2014 in Baltimore, Maryland. Following a video that surfaced of Ray Rice knocking his then fiancee Janay Rice unconscious in an New Jersey Casino elevator, the Baltimore Ravens cut Rice and the NFL suspended him indefinitely. The Baltimore Ravens offered fans an option for a free exchange of their Ray Rice uniforms for another Ravens player.

Friday and Saturday (Sept. 19-20), Baltimore Ravens fans stood for hours in a line that wrapped around the MT&T Bank Stadium to trade in their once cherished Ray Rice jersey. The Baltimore Ravens organization held this two day event, and nearly 8,000 people showed up to exchange their Rice jersey for a Joe Flacco, Terrell Suggs, or Torrey Smith jersey. The Ravens ran out of jerseys, not anticipating the great amount of people that came for the exchange. As a result, team officials had to give out over 2,000 vouchers to fans. It is estimated that this has cost the Ravens $250,000.
