More bad news for former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, who was involved in a domestic dispute with his then-fiancee (now wife) Janay back in February.

According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, Nike has decided to terminate its endorsement contract with Rice. He wore Nike during all of his 6 seasons in Baltimore.

This is just the latest domino to fall for Rice, who was released by the Ravens and indefinitely suspended by the NFL yesterday after a security video of the incident was released by TMZ.

Rice joins Lance Armstrong, Justin Gatlin and Michael Vick on the list of athletes who have had their contracts terminated by Nike for off-field conduct. Vick was later re-signed.
