In the aftermath of a video released by TMZ earlier today which shows Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee, now-wife Janay Palmer in a hotel elevator, several players – current and former – spoke out against Rice and the short punishment he received.
“That man should be thrown out the the nfl and thrown into jail,” Broncos DT Terrance Knighton tweeted. “Shame on those deciding his punishment. Smh.”
“As players we must speak up,” Knighton also wrote. “Stand up for what’s right. I don’t give a damn who u are or how much money you make. No place for this.
Longtime linebacker Scott Fujita, a former vice president of the NFLPA’s executive committee, had equally harsh words.
“I’m glad no one this morning seems to care about yesterday’s games,” Fujita wrote. “This piece of [expletive] needs to be out of the league. Period.”
