Mathis: 'No opinion' on Rice's suspension

By Mike Wells

ANDERSON, Ind. -- Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice player was suspended two games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy following an offseason arrest for domestic violence. Indianapolis Colts linebacker Robert Mathis was suspended four games for violating the league’s ban on performance-enhancing substances.

While there was plenty of outrage coming over the punishment handed down to Rice on Thursday, Mathis, who said he took the banned substance to help get his wife pregnant, isn't commenting on the issue.

Mathis posted a message on that Twitter that says "I have no opinion on any else's situation." The message was followed by an Instagram picture of Mathis and his newborn daughter.

 

Mathis has every right to be upset over the fact he was punished worse than Rice, but to his credit, the Colts’ linebacker is taking the high road and focusing on the positive that has come with the suspension.
