Janay Rice's friends: She's anxious to get her life back

The Baltimore Ravens hit back at damning allegations, insisting there was no cover-up of the Ray Rice domestic assault case.

During a press conference Monday, team owner Steve Bisciotti said ESPN's damning report  - that the team knew about the video tape of Ray Rice knocking out his now-wife, just hours after the attack - is nothing but lies and an attempt to get Rice reinstated by those close to him.

But there was something else that caught CNN's Erin Burnett's attention. Bisciotti said it's a bad idea to instate a zero tolerance policy when it comes to domestic violence:

"You can bet there are some opportunistic people out there that are going to look at this zero tolerance place we're getting to, and they're going to say this is really easy to threaten and get some money because the minute I threaten he gets cut," Bisciotti said.

Is the Raven's owner forgetting who the victim is here?

CNN is learning more about the victim in that attack - Janay Rice - from those who know her best.
