    Hundreds Line Up to Exchange Ray Rice Jerseys

    Hundreds of Baltimore Ravens fans lined the sidewalks of M&T Bank Stadium to exchange their Ray Rice jerseys.

    The Ravens are allowing fans to trade in their Ray Rice jerseys Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.

    The exchange was announced shortly after the NFL indefinitely suspended Rice after video showing the former running back punching his then-fiance was released.

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league asked for, but was not given, that video — and that "no one in the NFL, to my knowledge" had seen it — before it was posted online.

    Rice and Palmer were both charged with assault in the incident. Charges against Palmer were later dropped, and Rice was accepted into a pre-trial intervention program that let him avoid jail time and could allow the charges to be purged from his record. State lawmakers have since called for the New Jersey attorney general to review the case.

    According to WBAL, jerseys eligible for exchange must meet the following criteria:

    • Be officially licensed by the NFL
    • Be manufactured by Nike or Reebok
    • Have been purchased or available for purchase at the Ravens Team Store at M&T Bank Stadium or the Ravens Official Team Store online.
