Ray Rice Gets $40 Million From Ravens, According To Report

Ray Rice signed a five-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens just under Monday's 4 p.m. ET deadline. Rice would have had to play for $7.7 million before becoming an unrestricted free agent after next season if a deal didn't get done. Instead, he will earn $40 million over the length of the contract, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Rice remained optimistic throughout the offseason that a deal would get done. Ultimately he was proven right, even if negotiations came down to the wire. The fifth-year running back led the league with over 2,000 yards from scrimmage last season. He also earned his second career Pro Bowl selection.
