Last offseason, Ray Rice dedicated himself to the Ravens' offseason workout program and added 5-10 pounds of muscle to his frame.
The added weight and strength helped the second-year running back become one of the tougher backs in the league to bring down, and kept him in good shape throughout the Ravens' playoff run.
This year, Rice says he's comfortable with where he's at physically and doesn't feel a need to make any adjustments from where he was last year.
"I came in at a good, decent weight," Rice said. "I came in about 210, so I wanted to stay about 210. My weight fluctuates, sometimes after practice I'll be like 208, but 210 is about where I need to be and I'll be good."
The fact that Rice isn't making any changes to his physique this offseason doesn't mean that he isn't working hard.
The Rutgers product spent most of the offseason around team headquarters working out, and his effort and dedication has impressed the Ravens' coaching staff.
"You couldn't have a better offseason than what Ray Rice is having," head coach John Harbaugh said.
