Ray Rice says that an NFL team "would have to be willing to look deeper into who I am and realize that me and my wife had one bad night."

The former Ravens running back told NBC's "Today" show Tuesday "the only thing I can hope for and wish for is a second chance."

An arbitrator threw out Rice's indefinite suspension last Friday, making him a free agent. But no franchise may be willing to sign the three-time Pro Bowl pick after seeing the in-elevator video of Rice striking his-then fiancee.

Rice says: "I took full responsibility for everything that I did."
