Ray Rice would still like to play football and believes that he could help an NFL team.

"I can still play football," Rice told ESPN. "I'm never going to give up. You're never going to hear me say I gave up."

In addition to off-field concerns, Rice struggled when he last played with the Baltimore Ravens in 2013.

"The reason why I'm not playing football, you do the dots," Rice said. "It ain't because I'm a bad football player. That's just keeping it real. I'm never giving up and never giving in."
