Ray Rice is known as one of football’s good guys. He is philanthropically active off the field and seems like a genuinely nice dude.

Despite that, the Ravens’ running back may be in a bit of hot water after Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor insisted that Rice spit on him during their game this past Sunday.

Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor picked up a 15-yard penalty in Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens for slapping running back Ray Rice in the helmet. Taylor wouldn’t say what led him to hit Rice but hinted that Rice spit him on. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Monday he didn’t see any evidence that Rice spit on Taylor but Taylor is firm in his belief that Rice followed the example of former Baltimore Orioles player Roberto Alomar.

A league source tells PFT’s Mike Florio that Taylor insists that Rice did spit on him and that there is video evidence to prove it that will be sent to the league office for review.

Can’t wait for that video!
