Ray Rice Nearing Franchise Record In All-Purpose Yards

Posted Jun 23, 2013

The sixth-year running back is less than 1,000 yards away from Jamal Lewis’ record.

Ray Rice has been the best all-purpose back in the NFL for the past four years.

Now he’s nearing the distinction as the best all-purpose player in Ravens history.

The sixth-year running back has racked up 8,233 yards from scrimmage throughout his career, which ranks No. 2 in franchise history. Running back Jamal Lewis, a 2012 Ring of Honor inductee, currently holds the record with 9,166 yards from scrimmage.  

Rice needs just 933 yards to catch Lewis, which should happen about midway through this year if Rice is able to stay healthy. Rice has averaged 1,876.5 yards from scrimmage in each of the last four seasons.

While Rice is getting close to Lewis in total yards, he still has a ways to go in terms of rushing yards. Lewis leads the way with 7,801 career rushing yards compared to 5,520 for Rice.

Rice, a second-round draft pick out of Rutgers, has spent his entire career in Baltimore and he’s started to pile up the records. He’s the only Raven to rush for 1,000 yards in four straight seasons and his 15 touchdowns in 2011 are the most in franchise history.

A strong season in 2013 will have him sitting atop another category, and likely land him back in the Pro Bowl for the fourth time of his career.
