Nike also severed its endorsement ties with Ray Rice. The company confirmed via email Tuesday that Rice is no longer among the athletes it is working with.
Also on Tuesday, the Ravens announced fans could exchange their Rice jerseys at team stores.
As CBSSports.com notes, before the video emerged, Rice was one of the most popular athletes in Baltimore so it stands to reason there are lots of Ravens fans with Rice jerseys out there.
The Patriots offered a similar exchange for Aaron Hernandez jerseys after the former star tight end was arrested, charged with murder and released by New England all on the same day.
After the video showing Rice assault his future wife made its way around the Internet, the Ravens cut Rice and the league suspended him indefinitely. Rice was originally suspended for two games and coaches and others had praised his behavior since the arrest in February.
