Janay Rice says NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell wasn’t being honest when he said Ray Rice was “ambiguous” about hitting her in a casino elevator.
“I know for a fact … that Ray told the honest truth that he’s been telling from February,” Janay Rice told NBC’s “Today” show in an interview that will be broadcast Monday. A second segment will be shown Tuesday.
Janay Rice also did an essay, posted to ESPN.com where she details what led up to the fight and why she doesn’t think characterizations of her as a victim are accurate.
As for Goodell, she said: “I can’t say he’s telling the truth.”
An arbitrator Friday threw out Ray Rice’s indefinite suspension, making the former Baltimore Ravens running back a free agent. Former U.S. District Judge Barbara Jones called Goodell’s decision in September to change Rice’s original suspension from two games to indefinite “arbitrary” and an “abuse of discretion.”
The Rices met with Goodell in June. He then issued a two-game suspension but increased it to indefinite after an in-elevator video of Rice striking his then-fiancee in February was made public. The Ravens released Rice that day.
