Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is clearly one of the few premiere backs in the NFL and the Ravens need to make sure they can lock him up with a long term contract.

Rice’s rookie deal has run out and he’ll hit the free agent market officially on March 13th.

The good news for the Ravens and their fans is that Rice sees himself as a Raven and wants to stick around in Baltimore.

“Obviously, I don’t feel like I’m going anywhere,” Rice said. “But it’s just one of those processes where you want to wait and see what happens and hopefully me and the Ravens come to a great long-term deal. That’s the goal. I see myself here. I’m a Raven.”
