Ray Rice’s blockers helped him get a plane ticket to Hawaii.

watchNow the Ravens’ Pro Bowl running back helped them out with their swag.

This afternoon, fullback Vonta Leach tweeted a picture of the Brietling watch he got, along with a message saying “Nice gift for me and offensive lineman from @RayRice27 #dirtywork payoff.”

“Running backs, we get the glory,” Rice said after his big game in Cincinnati to close a regular season in which he led the NFL in total yards (2,068).

“Man, that bill is going to be expensive for what I have to get my offensive line. I have to get those guys something nice. They’ve set it up nice for me this year.”

Rice delivered on his promise. Center Matt Birk said he has never owned a watch. When asked what kind of watch it was, he jokingly said a Casio.

“It’s like no watch I’ve ever had before, it actually had hands on it,” Birk wise-cracked. “We should probably be buying him something. He probably makes us look better than we are, but it’s certainly, certainly appreciated.”
