(UPI) – Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice believes he has changed his ways since the domestic violence incident that cost him his NFL career.

Rice said Tuesday in an ESPN interview that he has undergone counseling and is continuing to speak against domestic violence since video surfaced last year showing him knocking out this then-fiancee Janay Palmer with a punch in an Atlantic City casino elevator.

“I’m not afraid to say right now I’m a rehabilitated man,” Rice said. “Some people will probably never forgive my actions, but I think … over time I want to be able to rewrite the script.”

Rice said he contemplated suicide in the months afterward.

“I actually felt what it felt like for people to feel like it wasn’t worth living. I felt like that at one point,” he said. “I know what it felt like to not want to live anymore.”
