The best part about deadlines is that it's usually the "get things done" time, when we really see the guts of one's courage. Case in point. There wasn't a high school assignment that I ever finished the day before the deadline. Am I right? Two days out? Nah. I have a day left. Or a $100 million contract for Drew Brees and the multi-year deal that Bears running back Matt Forte has wanted since last year.

In the latest example of living dangerously against deadlines, according to Peter King of Sports Illustrated, who broke the story, the Baltimore Ravens and running back Ray Rice have agreed to a multi-year contract. Aaron Wilson tweets that it's a five-year deal worth $40 million with $25 million guaranteed. Per Wilson's sources, the first-year of the deal is worth $17 million alone.

During eight career games against the Bengals, Ray Rice has only recorded only two 100-yard rushing performances -- and both of those were during the 2011 season. However since Rice transcends beyond the running game, it would be a disservice to ignore his contributions against Cincinnati in the pass game, generating 100 yards or more from scrimmage in five games, averaging 119.5 yards per game and 5.6 yards per touch (reception and rushing attempt).
