Strong Reason Why Chiefs star Rashee Rice ‘could avoid punishment until 2025 amid investigation into 119mph car crash’, and by 2025 the charges will be totally dropped

Super Bowl champion Rashee Rice could yet be free to play the 2024 season for the Kansas City Chiefs – despite being under investigation over a 119mph car crash in Dallas.


Rashee Rice facing Charges

That is according to an NFL insider who reports that the wide receiver could be waiting until next year to discover any punishment from the league.

It was previously claimed that the Chiefs expect Rice to be suspended for at least half of the upcoming campaign.

He is still expected to receive a multi-game suspension, according to ESPN, but it’s claimed the lengthy legal process could mean the NFL delays any decision until the end of the 2024 season.

Rashee Rice Charges

ESPN insisted that the Chiefs are still in the dark but the report cited the example of Alvin Kamara, who played a whole season while facing battery charges before being banned the following year.

The 24-year-old, who helped the Chiefs to a second successive Super Bowl win in February, is facing eight charges over the high-speed crash.

Rice, 24, surrendered to police after he and another driver of a speeding sports car allegedly caused a crash involving a half-dozen vehicles on a Dallas highway in March.

The Super Bowl winner is facing one count of aggravated assault, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and six counts of collision involving injury in relation to the wreck.

Rice was also under police investigation after he was accused of hitting a photographer at a nightclub in Dallas earlier this year.

The man at the center of allegations asked police to drop all charges and Rice participated in Chiefs OTAs back in May.

‘I’ve learned so much from (my offseason troubles),’ he said recently. All I can do is mature and continue to grow from that. This is a step in a better direction for me.

‘Accidents and stuff like that happen but all you can do is kind of move forward and walk around being the same person and try to be positive so that everybody could feel your love and your good energy.’

The Chiefs last month cut defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs after he was arrested on a charge of domestic violence and burglary.

The 27-year-old was also arrested earlier this year for animal cruelty. He was on a $1.3m deal to play for the Chiefs.

Buggs was arrested earlier in June after being accused of dragging the mother of his child down a set of steps and injuring her.
