Ray Rice “Looks Great!”

OWINGS MILLS — Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice had two primary goals coming into the offseason: Lose weight and also get healthy after dealing with a strained hip flexor for most of last season.

Rice has been dealing with the aftermath of his February arrest. However, while waiting for the legal process to unfold, Rice continues to work toward back bouncing back from by far the worst statistical season of his six-year NFL career.

Rice spent the early part of the offseason working out five days per week with a personal trainer while also working out 2-3 days per week at Ravens team headquarters. Now, he’s among the players in attendance for Baltimore’s voluntary offseason workouts, which began Monday.

Rice’s trainer, Kyle Jakobe, said earlier this offseason that Rice has lost around 15 pounds after weighing around 225 in January, and Ravens strength and conditioning coach Bob Rogucki said Tuesday that Rice “looks great.”

“I’ve spoken to Ray,” Rogucki said. “He’s doing some things differently as far as his diet and so forth, and he told me has a handle on it, so he looks good. Whatever he did from the end of the season until now, he’s in a good position right now.”

3 Raves on “Ray Rice “Looks Great!”

    I might be in the minority here, but I really hope he has a career season. Nothing like a Pro Bowl performance to re-energize the fan base and shore up support. As expected, a lot of fans soured on Rice after what happened in Atlantic City and support wasn’t crazy high before either due to a sub par season. I really hope he can put last season and the Atlantic City mishap in the rear view mirror and make this upcoming season the season that he proves he still deserves to be the #1 RB for the Ravens.

    Also, I hope he continues his philanthropy and maybe even does more. I know he’s always been a guy to give back but it wouldn’t hurt to double down.

    • Steve on said:

      I think he will continue his charity work, but would not be surprised if he did it less publicly. As a Ravens fan, I’m anxious to get a resolution to his legal situation and see where he stands. If he can get a deal and avoid jailtime, I’m curious to see what type of suspension he gets from the league. It’s a real shame, on a football and non-football level.
