Janay Rice Says NFL Urged Her to Apologize

Janay Rice Says Ravens Told Her To Apologize At That Press Conference

The first half of a two-part interview with Ray and Janay Rice aired on this morning's episode of the Today Show. Ray Rice wasn't present for this portion of the interview, and instead we saw Matt Lauer conduct a sit-down with Janay and her mother. The most revelatory part of the conversation was when Janay revealed that it was the Ravens who suggested she publicly apologize for the "role she played" in her own beating, and that the team gave her and Ray a "general script" of what to say at that disastrous press conference in May.
