NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced The Baltimore Ravens have terminated Ray Rice's contract on Monday afternoon. He has indefinitely suspended based on video probation of a domestic violence incident in which he was involved punching his then-fiancée, actual wife, Janay Palmer, during an altercation at an Atlantic City hotel in February.

The video was made public on Monday by TMZ.com. Rice, 27,  might not get a chance anywhere else in the NFL either. In the last months Ravens had firmly supported Rice who was charged with third-degree aggravated assault charge. They previosly suspended Rice just for two games. In their statement, Monday, The Ravens said: "That video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today."Rice  helped Baltimore to a Super Bowl title in the 2012. Rice had three years remaining on the five-year contract he signed with the Ravens in July 2012 on a $4 million base salary. The  league wants to impose discipline. The NFL introduced in August new, standardized penalties for domestic violence. Since August 28 two other NFL player have been arrested on domestic violence charges.
