Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is focused on returning to the NFL and is trying to say all the right things in his pursuit.
"We do live in a society where public opinion matters and I totally respect that, and domestic violence is real. It happens every 12 seconds. ... To the survivors of domestic violence, I understand how real it is," Rice told ESPN.
Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy were also suspended last season for domestic violence incidents. Both have largely veered away from media interviews since, but Rice's ESPN interview with Jemele Hill marks the second time he's addressed the media.
