Ravens were interested in ‘adding at least one running back’ before Ray Rice’s legal issues

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has gotten in a bit of trouble this offseason stemming from a domestic dispute at a casino in Atlantic City. A report out of the Baltimore Sun indicates that the team was looking to add a running back even before Rice got into legal trouble.

From the Baltimore Sun:

The Ravens planned on adding at least one running back before Rice’s legal issues began and once they did, they were prepared for the possibility that even when the situation gets resolved, Rice would likely be facing some sort of NFL suspension

The already down market for running backs is drying up though. They could decide to just try their hand in the draft unless they find Andre Brown, Justin Forsett or Michael Bush particularly appealing.
