Nike Drops Ray Rice, EA Sports Removes Him From Madden ’15
Yesterday, after video surfaced from the elevator incident earlier this year with his wife, the Ravens cut Ray Rice, which was followed by an indefinite ban from the NFL. Today, Rice has been dropped by Nike and EA Sports.
That means you won't be able to buy Ray Rice jerseys from the NFL Shop anymore, and you won't be able to play as Ray Rice in video games from now on. As far as the NFL, Nike and EA Sports are concerned, Ray Rice doesn't even exist anymore.
It's the latest news from a story that will continue to have tentacles from all angles — like the Ravens fans who have started a campaign urging people to donate $27 to aid shelters for victims of domestic violence.
