The former football star told NBC 4 he is still hoping to play once more in the league, but his biggest priority these days are his young son and daughter.
‘It was the worst decision of my life, and I’m going to pay that consequence for the rest of my life,’ said Rice, 29, of his brutal attack on his wife.
‘I have two kids, who I now have to raise my son to grow up to be a man but I also have to protect my daughter from myself, a guy that could potentially be like me in my worst moments.’
Rice has a 4-year-old daughter Rayven and a newborn son.
