The Ravens have a pretty good tradition of getting its players tattooed with images of the mothers who have passed away.
The Ravens are doing something similar with Ray Rice this season.
The Baltimore Ravens running back is getting a tattoo of his mother, who passed away in 2012.
The tattoo was done by a professional artist and is entitled “My mom is gone” on his forearm, the Baltimore Sun reported.
The Ravens signed Rice in 2012 as a free agent after he was released by the Carolina Panthers.
He spent three seasons with the Panthers before returning to the Ravens in 2015.
In 2016, the Ravens traded for Terrell Suggs, who was a free-agent signing.
Rice has three catches for 53 yards in two games with the Ravens this season, which is the first time he has been targeted with a running back in two consecutive games.
The other three Ravens running backs have also had two games of three-plus receptions in two weeks.
The NFL has not released any numbers for the Ravens running game, but they’ve been averaging just 3.1 yards per carry.
They’ve scored eight touchdowns in their past two games and have scored just one touchdown in their last six games.
