Not even Ray Rice’s well publicized domestic violence incident could keep the running back from getting interest from NFL teams.

According to TMZ, there is serious buzz around the league about Rice, with some teams expressing “serious interest” in signing him.

Rice’s agents have engaged with multiple teams, according to the report, and one agent — who does not represent Rice — told the outlet that at least one team will give Rice a shot.

“He will be back on the field very soon with some team,” the unnamed agent told TMZ. “I can guarantee that.”

Rice became the center of the NFL’s domestic violence issue after he punched out his then-fiance in an Atlantic City elevator. He originally received a two-game suspension for the assault. After TMZ released video of the violence, Rice was cut by the Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the league.
