Predicting the Ray Rice Contract

Predicting the Ray Rice Contract

One of the most explosive players in the NFL the past few seasons has been the one-man wrecking show that is Ray Rice, running back for the Baltimore Ravens. Like Bears running back Matt Forte, Rice has been franchise tagged by his respective team and in response is seeking a long-term contract. Without diving into the numbers yet, on paper Rice and Forte have similar resumes: Both backs are the clear-cut #1 option in their offense. Both backs start behind quarterbacks with talent, but who haven't reached their elite potential. And both backs are multi-tooled, in that they mean as much to the passing game as they do to the running game. 

The Spotrac team recently analyzed a contract prediction for Forte that brought forth interestingly low numbers. That being said, the Chicago Tribune is reporting that Rice is currently seeking a contract near $10 million per year.
