Ray Rice: Not Giving Up NFL Dream ... Despite Mentor Role

Exclusive Details

Just because he's giving life advice to NFL rookies doesn't mean Ray Rice has given up on his NFL dream -- with multiple sources close to the RB telling us he's still hoping to play this season. 

Over the past few days, 29-year-old Rice returned to the Baltimore Ravens to advise the rookies about the importance of being a good person. He also spoke with the football team at Western Michigan.  

Many people saw the moves as an indication he was finally ready to let his NFL dream go -- instead, exploring a career as a life coach or motivational speaker. 

But we're told that's just not the case.  

Our sources tell us Rice has been training like crazy -- keeping his body in NFL shape in case a team decides to kick the tires.  

As one person put it -- "his primary focus is on himself, his family and educating others but he would still like to finish what he started."
