The suspension is less than most expected and probably comes as a relief to the Ravens organization. Baltimore will also get some salary cap relief per RSR’s capologist Brian McFarland.
As mentioned previously, Ray Rice loses $235,294 per game suspended. Ravens will receive Cap credit in that amount as of week 1 of season.
