Raymell Mourice Rice (born January 22, 1987) is a former American football running back who played his entire professional career with the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for Rutgers and was drafted by the Ravens in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He is the Ravens' second all-time leading rusher behind Jamal Lewis, and is also second in rushing attempts and touchdowns, and third in combined touchdowns. He was a member of the 2012 Ravens team that won Super Bowl XLVII over the San Francisco 49ers.

In March 2014, Rice was arrested and subsequently indicted for an incident in which he assaulted his fiancée. Rice's contract was terminated by the Ravens in September 2014. He was subsequently suspended indefinitely by the league, but was later reinstated after he successfully appealed the decision in federal courts. However, Rice has not played professional football since his final season with the Ravens in 2013.
