Report: Ravens Knew Of Video Immediately And Covered It Up
It’s claimed that the Baltimore Ravens knew of the incriminating Ray Rice video shortly after it happened, and covered it up.
More than 20 senior sources within the squad and the NFL told ESPN the Ravens’ director of security Darren Sanders spoke to a police officer about the attack moments after the incident in a casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Valentine’s Day.
He immediately recounted the information to the club’s executives.
But they opted to conceal the scandal and the true force of Rice’s assault did not emerge for another seven months – while the star running back was simply given a two-match ban.
In response, the Baltimore Ravens has hit out at the ESPN report, Outside The Lines, claiming it contained ‘numerous errors, inaccuracies, false assumptions and, perhaps, misunderstandings.’
‘The Ravens will address all of these next week in Baltimore after our trip to Cleveland for Sunday’s game against the Browns,’ the team said in a statement on Friday.
However, the report insists the claims have been corroborated by team officials, current and former league officials, NFL Players Association representatives and associates, and advisers and friends of Rice. [su_csky_ad]
