Matt Lauer’s interview with Janay Rice aired yesterday on The Today Show and this morning we were able to see what Ray Rice had to say about that incident at a NJ hotel back in February. Lauer asked the former Ravens running back, what he thinks it will take for fans and another owner for him to get another chance on the field.

“They would have to be willing to, you know, look deeper into who I am and realize that me and my wife had one bad night, and I took full responsibility for it. And one thing about my punishment and everything going along with anything that happened is that I’ve accepted it. I went fully forward with it. I never complained, or I never did anything like that. I took full responsibility for everything that I did, and the only thing I can hope for and wish for is a second chance.”

Ray also addressed the fact that during that controversial press conference in which Janay apologized for her actions in during the Atlantic City fight, but heard nothing from Ray and that upset a lot of people, “Yes, I definitely understand that. The reason why that press conference was the way it was, was because we were still under legal situations. So there wasn’t much that could be said, but I’ll be honest, we were nervous, I was nervous, and that was the first time we were available to speak. And I made a horrendous mistake not apologizing to my wife.

We were given what to speak about. It wasn’t truly coming from us, if you can understand, but I made that clear in my last time I was able to speak that my wife is an angel. She can do no wrong. I take full responsibility for my actions.”
