Next: 32 Players With Most To Prove During The NFL Preseason

Training camps are well underway, and the first NFL preseason game is Sunday night. One predominant player that has yet to sign is running back Ray Rice. We all know the story of what happened to him, his suspension and fallout, and why the Baltimore Ravens released him last season.

Come 2015, Rice is looking for another chance to play with someone. Anyone.

At least one team has spoken up to say that it will not be looking to add the embattled running back, and that’s the Buffalo Bills.

The Bills certainly have quite the collection of running backs in the stable. They made the much talked about trade with the Philadelphia Eagles for LeSean McCoy, to whom they are paying a lot of money.

They still have veteran Fred Jackson to help back up McCoy, and even though he is injured right now, when healthy he’ll be more than capable of filling in when necessary. The Bills also have Bryce Brown and Boobie Dixon who each saw time in the backfield for the team last season. And then they also drafted Florida State running back Karlos Williams in the fifth round.

Even if Rice were to sign with Buffalo, because of the team’s depth, there’s no guarantee that he’d even see the field. It wouldn’t be the best situation for him to try to revive his career.

Rice will have to look somewhere other than western New York for employment. If he could play quarterback, something tells me the Bills may have been more interested.
