I don’t buy it. Not even a little bit.
I just don’t buy the idea the Cleveland Browns are even remotely considering going after Ray Rice. The same Ray Rice who’s become an NFL outcast thanks to his notorious domestic violence incident last year and the nightmarish mishandling that followed. The same Ray Rice who, despite being reinstated to the league last November, hasn’t heard a single peep from any team interested in signing him.
The whole thought process just seems ludicrous, like something the Browns wouldn’t even give a moment’s worth of contemplation to. Which makes coach Mike Pettine’s comments from today even more confusing when he was asked about potentially signing Rice.
