Support, albeit from the media and former teammates, is building for Ray Rice.

Rice remains a free agent, while several other athletes with histories of domestic violence are continuing their careers. Adrian Peterson, Greg Hardy and Ray McDonald have all received second chances following similar incidents and Hope Solo is currently starring in the women's World Cup despite a history of domestic violence.

From former teammate Torrey Smith to ESPN writer Jane McManus, many people have voiced support for the former Rutgers star publicly or on social media. Let's take a look at some of the recent buzz on Rice's situation on Twitter.

The support for Rice is there. But, question marks still remain.

Do teams want to sign a 28-year-old running back who has been out of the league for a year? Do teams want to endure the media spotlight of signing a controversial figure like Rice?

Well, if not, Rice still appears to be doing his best to rebuild his reputation and image.
