NFL places charge on Ravens salary cap for Ray Rice grievance

New, comments

Ray Rice grievance still has financial implications until suit is settled.

Ronald Martinez

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the NFL has placed a salary cap charge of $1,411,756 against the Ravens salary cap to reflect Ray Rice's pending grievance against the team.

Per his Facebook page, Schefter says:

"The charge was levied against Ravens earlier this month, and then the NFLPA updated its documents with the charge late last week. It's considered normal practice for the NFL to hold salary-cap space on a team until a grievance is resolved."

As expected once the entire Ray Rice debacle started in the first place, this situation will continue throughout the season and seemingly won't go away until the court makes it's decision during the upcoming trial. Rice is expected to have his grievance heard, along with testimonies from members of the Ravens front office and NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell.

Once the grievance is heard, proper salary cap charges will hit the Ravens depending on the ruling and Rice could be reinstated into the league following the trial. Depending on what the court rules, Rice may be eligible to sign with a team in just a little more than a week from now.
