    Ray Rice indicted for aggravated assault

    Ravens running back Ray Rice has been indicted on one count of aggravated assault in connection with an incident with his fiancee last month in Atlantic City.

    A press release from the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office says that Rice was indicted for “attempting to cause significant bodily injury, and/or purposely or knowing causing such injury, and/or recklessly causing such injury under extreme indifference to the value of human life.”

    When Rice was initially arrested, his attorney claimed Rice and his fiancee had only a “very minor physical altercation.” Rice’s fiancee was initially also arrested for allegedly assaulting Rice, but that charge has been dismissed.

    If Rice is convicted he faces three to five years in prison.
    Sorry I posted this on this forum, but if he misses the season, it does directly effect the Steelers.

    Ups the ante for Mr. Blount...the Ravens had already expressed interest in him; they will likely now be much more aggressive in trying to sign him.

    Now that the Pats have re-signed Wilfork, they will probably turn their attention to getting something done with Blount.

    It may take a little bit more than expected (money and/or contract length) to pry Blount away.

    I think BB would really like to have him back. He did a great job down the stretch for them.

    It would be interesting to see what he could do with a healthy Gronk in the line-up. (Of course, that would only last for a few games until Gronk gets hurt again. )

    Blount's 'role' could just as easily be filled by a mid-round draft pick. Larod Stephens-Howling is the forgotten man in this. He was signed last season to be the 3rd down guy & was doing well in pre-season. Sign him, Felix Jones & draft a guy. Problem solved.

    Chadman, I like your posts, and I usually agree; however, this is not one of the times!

    We need every draft pick possible to focus on Defense. LSH is still not 100% from injury, might not be the same ( speed and agility was his forte). Felix Jones was nothing special, Blount signing could give them a great 1-2 punch, like how the Ravens had with Rice and Pierce. And I wonder what does Felix Jones is price compared to Blount.

    I think this sounds more like the route the Steelers will take.
