Ravens fans trade in their Rice jerseys at stadium
BALTIMORE (AP) — Thousands of fans have traded in their Ray Rice jerseys for those of other Baltimore Ravens at the team’s stadium store.
The team set up the two-day program after releasing Rice last week. He has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL for domestic violence.
An estimated 5,000 fans are expected to show up before the event ends Saturday.
One of those fans was Bryce Krasaukis, a freshman at Oakdale High School in Frederick. He obtained an Elvis Dumervil jersey for Rice’s.
Krasuakis said, “I didn’t want to have my Ray Rice jersey in my closet anymore.”
Jerseys to be traded had to be officially licensed by the NFL and manufactured by Nike or Reebok.
The exchange was limited to one per person.
