This is a loaded question and with many variables in play. All crimes aside, his physical abilities alone could sway some teams from signing him as his 2013 numbers were mediocre at best. Assuming he still is a 1000+ yard rusher in the NFL, SHOULD he be given another shot?. The league is full of convicted felons. Has Rice's individual circumstances been that much different than others who still remain under contract with other teams? Personally, I feel he deserves another chance. He missed a season, was punished in criminal court, served or is serving his sentence and should be under contract. It's a sad social commentary that fans, league personal and owners are reluctant to sign him in my opinion, not based on his specific actions but that they were captured on video tape. Being able to attach his crime to first hand evidence seems to be the MAIN reason Rice remains out of the NFL. Sigh, what a double standard and disappointing reality.
