Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice touched the ball more than 360 times in each of the past two seasons. According to running backs coach Wilbert Montgomery, that's not going to change any time soon.
"You don't buy a new car and put it in the driveway and just park it in the garage," Montgomery said Monday. "You buy it, you drive it. If you wear the wheels off, you go out and get another one. So, Ray carrying 300 times, I'm looking for the next Ray Rice after that.
"The game today, you can't save guys. You have to play them, and you ask them to give you whatever they have to give in return and ask for nothing in return."
That kind of talk might take some years off of Rice's career and cause those in keeper leagues to worry. But Rice is still very young at just 25 years old and so it's full speed ahead for one of the league's best players. He's an easy top-3 pick in drafts.
