The Caw: Ray Rice Thanks Blockers With Big Gifts

Posted Dec 29, 2012

Joe Flacco also spoiled the offensive linemen with Bose speaker systems.


Tis the season to be linemen, fa la la la la, la la la la.

The Ravens offensive blockers got hooked up this holiday season by their quarterback and running back.

Last week, all of the team’s offensive linemen and fullback Vonta Leach were greeted by Bose speaker systems in their lockers, gifts from Joe Flacco.

This week, Leach tweeted about a gift he got from Ray Rice, who was just named to his third Pro Bowl. Last year, Rice got the linemen Brietling watches. This year, everybody got a 46-inch, flat screen TV. Rice called it a “small token of appreciation.”

Rice spent some time trying to think of the perfect gift.

“I know everybody has a TV, but I had to get them something called a Smart TV,” he said. “They could have the internet and all that stuff. I try to keep up with technology.”

The gift of giving paid off for Joe last week. He was hardly touched by the New York Giants. Is Rice hoping the gifts will pay dividends for him too with some sweet run blocking?

Nah, Rice said he already ordered the TVs before he topped 1,000 rushing yards and was named to the Pro Bowl. The fact that the awards came this week just made it sweeter.

“I’m sitting here getting all these accolades. Those guys, they don’t live by accolades. They live by putting their hand in the dirt and going to work,” Rice said.

“There’s no price you can put on how much you appreciate the dirty work for you.”
