Ravens running back Ray Rice is playing under the final season of his rookie contract and is hopeful for a new deal. Rice is tied for fourth in the NFL with nine rushing touchdowns this season. He is fourth in total yards per game and seventh in rushing yards. He will have no shortage of suitors if he hits the open market, but the fourth-year back told the NFL Network on Wednesday that he "definitely" thinks he will remain in Baltimore after the 2011 season. "Our organization is a first-class organization," Rice said. "They've always did a good job of keeping their star players around and I think I'll be one of the guys that in the offseason -- or whenever it is. I figure if you take care of the game, the game will take care of you, and I'll be a Baltimore Raven next year."
