Sidney Rice: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Rice, who indicated earlier this week that he has been cleared to begin cutting again as his recovery from an ACL injury continues, visited the Jets on Wednesday, the Seattle Times reports.

Rice -- who suffered an ACL injury back on Oct. 28 -- indicated Monday that he has been cleared to begin cutting, the Seattle Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

It's another significant step in the unsigned wideout's recovery from his knee injury, with the report suggesting that the Saints, Giants, Packers and Rice's 2013 team, the Seahawks, are all thought to have interest in his services.
Rice (knee) is thought to be on the Jets' and Saints' free-agent radar, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Rice (knee) is on pace to be healthy enough to participate in the OTAs of the team that signs him, USA Today reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Rice was a cap casualty for the Seahawks, and is readying himself to test the free agent waters on what will likely be a short term deal. The 27-year-old caught 15 passes for 231 yards and three touchdowns in 2013, before his season was cut short due to an ACL injury. Wherever he ends up signing, that team will be able to take comfort in the fact that Rice will be able to build a rapport with their quarterback during the offseason.
Rice (knee) was officially released by the Seahawks on Friday, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

This had been in the works for a while, as Rice's ACL injury and $7-plus million cap number for 2014 was a combination too risky for the Seahawks to take on. Now 27, Rice has appeared in nine or fewer games in three of his last four seasons, so he'll likely have to settle for a one-year deal from another club.
Rice (knee) will be released by the Seahawks, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The move should come as no surprise to Rice or Seahawks fans, as granting Rice his release will save the team roughly $7 million in 2014 cap room. Rice will return from a torn ACL suffered last October, and this question mark makes him too risky for his price tag. He'll likely catch on with another team, but he'll be looking at a short-term contract rather than anything resembling the five-year, $41 million deal he signed with Seattle back in 2011.
Rice, who missed the last 11 games including the playoffs with a torn ACL, likely will be cut by the Seahawks to clear salary-cap space, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The report is less news than obvious speculation dressed up as news, citing a vague "person familiar with the Seahawks' thinking" as the source. In fact, it would be a shock if the Seahawks did not cut Rice, who is set to make $9.7 million in 2014. Letting him go would free $7.3 million in cap savings. It's possible Rice could renegotiate his deal to stay in the Seattle, especially if the Seahawks don't re-sign Golden Tate, who is an unrestricted free agent. Rice suffered the injury Oct. 28 against the Rams and, according to coach Pete Carroll, is progressing well in his rehab. While Rice is a gifted receiver, he has durability concerns, playing a full season only once in the last four years.

2013

2012

After a hip injury limited Rice to just six games in 2010, a shoulder injury and two concussions last year cut short his season after nine. He wound up having offseason surgery on both shoulders, though he is expected to be completely healthy for the start of training camp. The Seahawks have big possession-target Mike Williams (assuming he makes it back from a broken left ankle) and a small, quick slot type in Doug Baldwin. But at 6-4, 203, and with good quickness for his height, Rice is the player with the size and athleticism to operate down field and in the red zone. The Seahawks acquired tight end Kellen Winslow this offseason, but they virtually ignored the position in the passing game for the second year in a row last season, so Winslow probably won't take much, if anything, away from Rice. With newly signed Matt Flynn the favorite to win the quarterback, the Seahawks could evolve into more of a downfield passing team this season, something that could benefit Rice.

2011

After a 2009 breakout, Rice suffered a hip injury in the NFC Playoffs that lingered 10 weeks into last season. When Rice returned, he showed flashes of his old form (he had a 105-yard, two-TD game against the Bills in Week 13) but missed another game with a concussion. Rice's per-play numbers (in a 43-target sample) dropped off the table (6.7 YPT), though his robust 16.5 catch average shows it was a problem getting the ball (40 percent catch rate) rather than being productive with it. Considering the sample size and that Rice was playing mostly with the likes of Joe Webb and Tarvaris Jackson, we can largely write that issue off. Instead of re-upping with the Vikings, Rice agreed to a monster five-year, $41 million contract with the Seahawks, which guaranteed him $18.5 million. Interestingly, the Seahawks were also the team that landed Tavaris Jackson, which means Rice is already familiar with his starting quarterback, despite the new team. But regardless of who his quarterback is, Rice is a 6-4, 203-pound deep threat with good quickness for his height and the ability to function in the red zone.

2010

With Bernard Berrian installed as the deep threat, Percy Harvin drafted in the first round and Adrian Peterson set to return as the offensive centerpiece, Rice was expected to play a bit part in the Vikings attack. But thatís because no one counted on Brett Favre playing at a Pro Bowl level and making Rice his favorite target. Rice was more than up to the task, leading all 100-target receivers with 10.8 yards per target. His 69-percent catch rate was third best, behind possession specialists Wes Welker and Hines Ward. But Riceís was compiled while averaging 15.8 yards per catch. Rice isnít a true burner, but at 6-4, 203, he moves well for someone his height and is able to beat smaller defensive backs down field ó his seven catches of 40 yards or more tied him with Randy Moss and Steve Smith for fifth in the league. The Vikings looked to Rice a fair amount from in close (22 red-zone looks, 10 from inside the 10), but he had to share work in that area of the field with tight end Visanthe Shiancoe (also 10 targets from inside the 10). The good news is that Favre was third in the NFL with 41 inside-the-10 attempts. The bad news is Favre might not return for 2010, and in that case, the Vikings might once again be Adrian Petersonís team. The bottom line ó Rice turned the corner in his third season to establish himself as a legitimate No. 1 target. But unless Favre returns, itís hard to see Rice having quite the same chemistry or efficiency with the other quarterbacks currently on the roster.

2009

After spraining his PCL in 2008, Rice hopes to rebound from 15 catches, 141 yards in 13 games in '08. Rice currently is listed as the second right side wide receiver behind Bobby Wade. He will compete with rookie Percy Harvin for the slot receiver position. Rice is always a red zone threat, but do not expect big numbers from him in 2009 with the addition of Percy Harvin and the Vikings run based offense.

2008

Were Rice on a team more capable of passing and less committed to the run, he'd have more upside in his second season. As it stands, the Vikings have to throw the ball sometimes, and we expect both Rice and newly signed Bernard Berrian to split most of the wideout targets. At 6-3, 208 (after adding eight pounds of muscle in the offseason), and with good speed, excellent leaping ability and reliable hands, Rice is ideally suited to catching jump balls in the end zone, and should the Vikings find nine men in the box on Adrian Peterson near the goal line, they could get Rice some looks from in close (Berrian only saw 18 red-zone targets in two years combined as a starter in Chicago).

2007

We wanted to pick one Vikings receiver, and we couldnít pull the trigger on possession journeymen Bobby Wade or Billy McMullen. Troy Williamsonís looked lost during his first two seasons, and we donít buy that his work with vision specialists this offseason is going to fix the problem. That leaves the rookie, Rice, a second-round draft pick, who will compete with the aforementioned mediocrities for looks. Second-year quarterback Tarvaris Jackson isnít going to be mistaken for Carson Palmer, but Minnesotaís going to rack up 2,400 passing yards at minimum, and theyíve got to go to someone. Rice has decent speed, stands 6-3 and can leap. Heís got excellent hands and excels in the red zone.
