This week The Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson reported that Rice was paid $1.588 million by the Ravens in a wrongful termination suit. Rice was scheduled to make $3.529 million in salary last season, the Sun said, but like most NFL contracts that was not guaranteed. According to the Sun Rice settled before an arbitration hearing with the Ravens.
Twitter reacted to the news and most were not too happy about it:
