    Does anyone think Ray Rice could hold out?



    Just curious. I don't think he'd be that kind of a guy, but stranger things have happened.

    It's entirely possible for him to holdout, it's business. I would like to think that he wouldn't do that but it comes down to the strategy that his agent employs. All that being said, I personally don't think he'll hold out...

    I sure hope he doesnt, but it seems like most of the time in these situations they do. As they like to say "it's business"

    Re: Does anyone think Ray Rice could hold out?

    Even though it's ultimately Rice's decision, we have to understand that the people he has hired to advise him on these matters will likely suggest or rather insist that he goes that route. I would not be at all surprised to see him hold out. He plays one of the least durable positions in the NFL. He can't risk injury if he's going to get paid. Because you better believe if Rice comes in under the franchise tag and pops an ACL or something the Ravens will cut off all negotiations or try to low ball the hell out of him.

    Could he? Yes.

    Will he? Nope.

    Doesn't have that kind of vibe and he's been saying he's ok with the tag.

    I think you answered your own question the same way I would. It would be uncharacteristic for him, absolutely.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    Depends on what his agent is telling him

    It would be suprising but players listen to the agents

    I don't think he will go that route, #1, he knows it would hurt the team, and he loves his teamates. #2 He is too smart to play that game with Ozzie, because he won't win. #3 He already stated before he got the FT that he was ok with that and that he was gonna be at TC regardless.
    I think that pretty much assures us that he is gonna be a team player.

    I hope not, and I don't think it's in him to do it, but at the same time his agent seems like a real dick, so I can see it possibly happening. This is why it could be important to sign a FA RB who is proven, and could split carries with Allen should any of this happen.

    Does he seem like the type of guy to hold a hard stance to get AP money? Nope!

    Is he doing that? Yes!

    It's all up to his agent and the strategy he wants to go with. If he tells Rice to hold out, then you can wipe out Rice as the person. This is a business and he's going to put his money first, then the team second.

    Would it really be a big deal for him to hold out a few weeks? The Ravens need to find out who his backup is gonna be so it would probably be for the best!
