Ray Rice received $1.588 million from the Baltimore Ravens as part of the settlement in his wrongful termination grievance hearing in January, the Baltimore Sun reported Tuesday, citing sources.
As a result of the settlement, the Ravens will carry an additional $177,000 against the 2015 salary cap. The NFL had placed a $1.411 million cap charge against the Ravens’ 2014 cap when Rice filed his grievance. So, the additional $177,000 will carry over into 2015.
Rice was seeking $3.529 million, the amount he would have earned had he played the remaining 14 games of the regular season after being suspended for two games.
He was suspended indefinitely Sept. 8 for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
Rice was reinstated in December after a neutral arbitrator overturned his NFL suspension on appeal. Commissioner Roger Goodell had initially suspended Rice for two games before increasing the punishment to an indefinite ban after the video surfaced.
