Ray Rice is speaking out about his life two years after his NFL career was cut short due to a video that showed him punching his now-wife Janay in the face at an Atlantic City hotel.
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.’

He also said that he wanted his story to be told and the details of his past shared in hopes that it could help others.
Another big focus in Rice’s life these days is self-improvement.
‘I have to make a decision every day that I’m going to be better than I was on tape,’ explained Rice, who now lives in Connecticut.
