Obviously, nothing is more important to the NFL than the almighty dollar.

More than 24 hours after the NFL handed down a measly two game suspension for Ravens running back Ray Rice for beating his then-fiancé unconscious, the NFL Shop continues to sell woman-specific Ray Rice-related merchandise and apparel.

Available for purchase are jersey upon jersey (six types in total), along with player t-shirts, with Rice’s name and number on the back.

The jerseys sell for $94.95 and $144.95, depending on the style, while the player shirts run for between $31.95 and $59.95.

The shop sells one shirt in particular (in both pink and purple, of course) dubbed the ‘Draft Him Shimmer V-Neck T-Shirt,’ which boasts Rice’s #27 on both sides. For kicks, it’s even laced with rhinestones…all for the cool price of $59.95 (buyer beware).

Also available are various other trinkets, such as drawstring backpacks, scarfs, and lanyards — all donning Rice’s name and #27.

The Ravens running back allegedly struck his then-fiance during an altercation in February, knocking her unconscious. Soon after, video footage surfaced of Rice dragging her, unconscious and all, through the hotel following the alleged incident.

Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention, Rice ended up marrying the same woman in late March, less than two months after the  alleged incident.

All this comes on the heels of the NFL suspending Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon indefinitely (potentially for the entire 2014 season) for repeated use of marijuana, along with other players for similar offenses.
