Rice Rice’s attorney Peter Ginsberg told USA Today Sports Friday that he has won his appeal. He is eligible to sign play with a team if he is signed. He was suspended indefinitely in September after video footage was released by TMZ about a domestic violence incident that took place in February at an Atlantic City casino. During a two day trial which took place earlier this month, U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones oversaw two days of testimony. The NFL Players Association argued Rice was subjected double jeopardy based on the same set of facts and his due process rights under the collective bargaining agreement was violated. This meant that the indefinite suspension was added after the punishment was already given; which was a two-game suspension.
