Despite his reinstatement by the NFL, the number of potential suitors for RB Ray Rice dwindle, even among teams that have a need at his position.

Head coach Jim Caldwell of the the Detroit Lions, who have been struggling to stay healthy at the RB position since Reggie Bush suffered an injury early in the season, has told media outlets that the team has no interest in signing recently-reinstated RB Ray Rice.
“We haven’t considered that at this point,” Caldwell said, via the Detroit News. “I am not sure what will happen to him in this league. Certainly I believe in second chances. At some point I think he will get one. But when it’s going to happen, I don’t know.”
Caldwell has experience working with Rice, as he served as his Offensive Coordinator with the Baltimore Ravens from Superbowl XLVII to the end of the 2013 season before being hired by the Lions.
Rice averaged a career-low 3.1 yards/carry in 2013 and turns 28 next month, begging the question of whether Rice would even be effective for any team he signed with this late in the season.
