Ray Rice posts Facebook statement apologizing to Ravens fans

    Ray Rice arrives for an appeal hearing of his indefinite suspension from the NFL.

BALTIMORE >>Ex-Ravens player Ray Rice has posted a statement apologizing to fans for a “horrible mistake” and asking for forgiveness.

In a statement released Friday to The Baltimore Sun and posted on his Facebook page, Rice wrote that he was sorry for letting down the young fans who looked up to him.

He wrote: “There is no excuse for domestic violence, and I apologize for the horrible mistake I made.”

The statement comes nearly a year after Rice was charged in New Jersey with assaulting then-fiancee Janay Palmer. On Sept. 8, a video surfaced showing Rice punching Palmer in an elevator. Rice and Palmer have since married.

The Ravens released the running back after the video became public.

Rice said his statement was not a farewell.
