Ray Rice's Ex-Team Makes 2nd Gift to an Anti-Violence Group

The Baltimore Ravens have donated $400,000 to a Maryland organization that works to combat relationship violence, the National Football League team's second gift to such a group since controversy erupted last summer over its handling of the Ray Rice case, The Baltimore Sun reports. The new contribution benefits the One Love Foundation established by the family of Yeardley Love, a Cockeysville, Md., woman who was killed in 2010 by her ex-boyfriend.

In August, a month after the NFL suspended Mr. Rice for two weeks for assaulting his then-fiancee, the Ravens donated $600,000 to the House of Ruth, which operates shelters and advocates for victims of domestic violence. The team, which was initially criticized for not taking organizational action against the star running back, cut Mr. Rice in September after video surfaced of the player punching and knocking out Janay Palmer, now his wife.
