Baltimore Ravens Offer To Let Fans Exchange Ray Rice Jerseys

You’ve probably already seen the recently released security camera footage of NFL running back Ray Rice punching out his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City hotel elevator. The footage resulted in Rice’s indefinite suspension from the league and his release from the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, and now the team is saying it will allow fans with Ray Rice jerseys to exchange them.

The team announced the plan on Twitter early Tuesday morning, saying they will be offering exchanges at the team store at M&T Stadium. The Ravens say they will provide more details about the exchange on the team website.

This is not without precedent. Shortly before the 2013 season, the New England Patriots announced a jersey exchange for fans who no longer felt right sporting Aaron Hernandez jerseys after the former player was arrested on murder charges.

Of course, this also led to some collectors paying wads of cash for Hernandez jerseys on eBay, including the one guy who spent $285 for one but didn’t want his wife to know.
