Ray Rice Video Was Sent to NFL in April, AP Source Confirms

The shocking video that shows Ray Rice beating his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in a hotel elevator was reportedly sent to the NFL back in April, a source has confirmed to the Associated Press.

A law enforcement official played a 12-second voice mail for the AP which was sent on April 9 from an NFL office phone number. In the message, a female employee of the NFL confirms the video was received and says, “You’re right. It’s terrible.”

The NFL has repeatedly said that the organization never received the video after trying to obtain it earlier this year.

“We assumed that there was a video. We asked for video. But we were never granted that opportunity,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said.

Ray was initially suspended for two games following the incident in February, but after the video surfaced this week, he was cut from the Baltimore Ravens roster and suspended indefinitely by the NFL.

    I’m sorry but enough of this video already ready. Janay is a victim and we need to stop victimizing this woman by keeping this video posted on TMZ and rebroadcasting it in every new segment. We know what happened in the elevator now, what is the purpose of having the video posted online and in every news segment.

    Happy for her.
    She wanted more kids forever.
    She took the time to find love again.

    This man needs to get counseling by a professional, and he needs to get an education. Same goes Janay…
