Ray Rice has been released by the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced. Earlier today, TMZ released video from inside the Atlantic City casino elevator in which the running back knocked his then-fiancée unconscious. Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman reported that the video had caused Rice to lose the support of his teammates, who one of whom said they previously had been told by Rice that he acted in self-defense.
