Rice's teammates still support him.

His arrest for domestic violence against his then-fiancee last February is something Rice figures will haunt him long after NFL career has ended.

"It was the first time it ever happened,Adidas NHL Jerseys China," he said. "I've never had a problem with domestic abuse. This was a one-time incident."

"I still have kids out there wearing 27 jerseys, and I just want to tell them that please don't make the mistake I did," he said. "I always talk about one or two bad decisions and your dream can become a nightmare, and I was truly living a nightmare."
"I don't want to keep re-living the incident. I'm trying to move forward," he said. "What happened that night was a huge mistake, and that's what I'll keep it at. I don't condone any of my behavior. I take full responsibility for my actions. My wife can do no wrong."
"In some people's eyes, Ray can do no wrong. That's something I take pride in," he said. "I know a lot of people out there have lost respect, maybe not like me anymore. But that's my fault. I have to own that. That's my battle each day."
