Sidney Rice opting to return to Seattle


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) The Seahawks re-signed free-agent wide receiver Sidney Rice to a one-year deal Wednesday, after being cut earlier in the offseason.

Financial terms of the deal are not yet known, though it will surely pay him less than the $8.5 million he was initially set to make before he was cut. Rice is recovering from a torn ACL in October, but has been cleared to return to football activities. 


Panthers might not be able to afford Sidney Rice


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) The Panthers are not expected to show much interest in free agent receiver Sidney Rice, reports ESPN.

Rice, who was medically cleared for football activities following his ACL team in October, was rumored be attracting interest from Carolina, New Orleans, Seattle (his former team) and the Giants. So far the Giants and Panthers have reports saying they are not in the mix.

For the Panthers, Carolina has the least money to spend among the four teams interested. He could still end up with the Panthers, who have tremendous need at receiver, but it doesn't appear to be a logical fit.


Seahawks could bring back Sidney Rice


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) The Seahawks could be interested in bringing back free agent receiver Sidney Rice, reports the Everett Herald.

The Seahawks released Rice in a salary-cap move earlier this offseason. He is recovering from a torn ACL, but he was cleared for football activities Monday.

Other teams that could show interest in Rice include the Saints, Panthers and Giants, although ESPN reports the Giants aren't expected to make a serious run for his services. If Rice is available on a low-cost, short-term deal, he would make a ton of sense for Seattle, which lost Golden Tate as a free agent this offseason to the Lions.


Sidney Rice cleared for football activities


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/14/2014) Free agent receiver Sidney Rice has been cleared for football activities, ProFootballTalk.com reported Monday. Rice tore his ACL in late October last season but has rehabbed it since. 

A source tells ProFootballTalk.com that the Giants, Saints and Panthers have interest in Rice, as do the Seahawks. 


Sidney Rice running again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Free agent receiver Sidney Rice tweeted that he's "up and running" five months after his ACL surgery. Rice has drawn interest from the Jets and Saints, and still could re-sign with the Seahawks.

Seattle released Rice last month, saving $7.3 million against the cap.


Sidney Rice's market heating up?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) The Jets and Saints are interested in free agent receiver Sidney Rice, reports NFL Network. And the Seahawks, who cut Rice, would welcome his return, the report added.

Releasing Rice saved Seattle $7.3 million. As recently as 2012, Rice played in every game for the Seahawks, making 50 catches for 748 yards and seven touchdowns.


Seahawks interested in Sidney Rice reunion


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) Though he was waived to clear room on the salary cap just days ago, free agent wide receiver Sidney Rice's days with the Seahawks may not be done just yet.

According to NFL.com, the Seahawks are interested in re-signing Rice as a free agent, after releasing him to save $7.3 million in February. Rice is recovering from a torn ACL and expects to be ready for offseason workouts by April, regardless of which team he signs with.

Rice never quiet became the playmaker the Seahawks hoped for, as he finished the 2013 season with just 15 receptions for 231 yards and three touchdowns in eight games. 


Sidney Rice (knee) should be ready by April


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) Free agent receiver Sidney Rice should be ready to go for offseason workouts in April if he signs with a new team, reports USA Today. Rice, who was cut by the Seahawks in February, is coming off a torn ACL from last season.

The report suggests Rice will try and sign a one-year "prove it deal" to show he's still a viable playmaker, even coming off the knee injury. The report also says Rice, 27, can still add something to a team because of his size (6-foot-4, 202 pounds), speed and ability to go all over the field.


Seahawks might have a chance to re-sign Sidney Rice, Red Bryant


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the team might have a chance to re-sign receiver Sidney Rice and defensive end Red Bryant, who were released last week for a cap savings of $12.8 million.

“We’ll have to wait and see," Carroll told the Seattle Times.


Seahawks cut Sidney Rice, Red Bryant


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2014) The Seahawks released wide receiver Sidney Rice and defensive end Red Bryant on Friday in order to clear up some salary cap space.

The two moves will save the Seahawks $12.8 million ($7.3 million with Rice and $5.5 million with Bryant).

Rice suffered a torn ACL in 2013 and was limited to just eight games, catching 15 passes for 231 yards and three scores. Bryant, who turns 30 in April, had 31 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 15 games last season.

Sidney Rice expected to be released soon


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Set to make $8.5 million in 2014 and plagued by injuries for much of his career, receiver Sidney Rice is "virtually certain" to get released by the Seahawks, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

No official move has been made at this point but when the Seahawks do cut Rice they'll reportedly save $7.3 million against the salary cap, space they'll need to keep the core players of their Super Bowl team on the roster. 

Rice suffered a torn ACL in 2013 and was limited to just eight games, catching 15 passes for 231 yards and three scores. Over three years with the Seahawks he missed 15 games, scored 12 touchdowns and failed to record even 800 receiving yards in a single season. 


LaCanfora: Sidney Rice could be 'a goner'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice could either be released or asked to take a pay cut if he wants to return in 2014, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora.

Rice has a base salary of $8.5 million for next year. LaCanfora reports that considering his limited production and injury woes, Rice is "a goner." Or, LaCanfora says, he either takes a massive pay cut, but the Seahawks can save $7.3 million in cap space by releasing him.

Rice suffered a torn ACL in 2013 and was limited to just eight games.


Sidney Rice recovering well from torn ACL


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/6/2014) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told the media Wednesday that receiver Sidney Rice is recovering nicely from a torn ACL suffered in late October. 

"He's had an unbelievable recovery from his surgery," Carroll said according to the Seattle Times. "Within weeks he was back up with almost total reflection and extension and it's just almost an unheard of type of recovery. It's so far ahead of schedule, so that's great for Sid. We'll see how that turns out, but right off the bat we've never seen anybody (recover) like that."

Rice is under contract for 2014 but he's due $8.5 million next season and carries a $9.7 salary cap number. The Seahawks would open up some money for other players by letting the injury prone receiver go. 


Keep an eye on the Seahawks receiving corps


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/4/2014) There could be a lot of change at receiver for the Seahawks this offseason.

Golden Tate, who led the team with 898 receiving yards and tied for the team lead with five touchdown catches, is scheduled to be a free agent. While the team might want to keep him, they'll be strapped at the position considering the $11 million they'll owe Percy Harvin for 2014. USA Today chronicled the Seahawks cap situation and noted the team has shown no sign of cutting Harvin after his injury-plagued season. 

Doug Baldwin is a restricted free agent who won't cost a lot of money -- for now. Assuming the Seahawks keep him on a one-year tender offer he'll be due for a new contract again next offseason. Baldwin had 778 yards and five touchdowns last year. 

One way to save some money is to let veteran receiver Sidney Rice loose. He's due $8.5 million next season and carries a $9.7 salary cap number. The Seahawks would open up some money for other players by letting the injury prone receiver go. 


Sidney Rice will finish season on IR


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) The Seahawks announced Wednesday they placed wide receiver Sidney Rice on season-ending injured reserve. Rice will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL Monday against the Rams.

Report: Sidney Rice has torn ACL


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2013) Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice tore his ACL in the Week 8 win in St. Louis and is out for the season, a source tells ProFootballTalk.com. Rice also was suffering from concussion-like symptoms following the game.

Rice has 15 catches for 231 yards and three touchdowns.


Sidney Rice has concussion-like symptoms


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2013) Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice not only suffered a knee injury in the Week 8 win in St. Louis, but he's got concussion-like symptoms, coach Pete Carroll said on 710 ESPN Radio. Rice ended the 2011 season on injured reserve after sustaining two concussions in three weeks, according to the Everett Herald.

Sidney Rice leaves with knee injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2013) Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice left the game against the Rams in the second quarter with a knee injury. Rice was targeted three times before the injury occurred, without making a catch.

Rice had a chance for a touchdown grab, but corner Janoris Jenkins knocked the ball out of Rice's hands before he could secure it.


Don't gamble on Sidney Rice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2013) Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice hauled in his third touchdown catch last week at Arizona, tying Zach Miller for the team lead. Don't bet on Rice to repeat that Week 8.

Rice has a paltry 15 catches and has drawn exactly four targets each of the past three games. With Russell Wilson spreading the ball around, Rice is a bad bet to deliver any given week.

Consider him a WR4 despite the nice matchup at St. Louis.


Sidney Rice hauls in third touchdown


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/18/2013) Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice turned his limited looks into a solid game Thursday, in a 34-22 win over the Cardinals in Week 7.

Rice had just four passes thrown his way in the game, but he hauled in three of them for 50 yards. His longest reception went for 30 yards and a first-quarter touchdown.

Rice now has 15 receptions for 231 yards and a team-high three touchdowns entering Week 8 against the Rams.  


Sidney Rice not a great Week 7 option


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/16/2013) Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice has just one week with more than three Fantasy points. His offense throws the third-fewest passes in the NFL. And his Week 7 opponent, the Cardinals, have allowed the fourth-fewest Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. 

On top of all that, Rice's Week 7 matchup is on Thursday, which has produced some of the uglier offensive performances so far this season. 

Rice may eventually regain some Fantasy value. But he should remain benched for this week's game against Arizona. 


Sidney Rice held to two catches


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice was limited to just 2 catches Week 6 against the Titans.

Rice was probable with a knee injury entering the game, so that may have contributed to his struggles. At the same time, the Titans defense held most of the team's receivers in check. Rice gained just 35 yards.

Rice will try to get back on track Week 7 against the Cardinals. 


Sidney Rice expected to play


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) Seahawks WR Sidney Rice is active Week 6 against the Titans.

Rice was listed as probable this week with a knee injury. He was not listed on the injury report Wednesday and Thursday, but did not practice Friday.


Sidney Rice should play against Titans


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2013) Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice is listed as probable against the Titans Week 6.

Rice did not practice Friday due to a knee injury, but it doesn't seem to be serious. He was able to practice, and was not listed on the injury report earlier in the week. 


Sidney Rice faces tough Week 6 task


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/9/2013) Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice is coming off a disappointing two-game slide, in which he's caught two passes for 19 yards (for one Fantasy point). This follows a Week 3 breakout, in which Rice caught two touchdowns and scored 19 Fantasy points. 

Week 6 brings the Titans, who have held opposing wide receivers to the second-lowest Fantasy point per game total this season. They've allowed two touchdowns over five games, and only DeAndre Hopkins has gone over 100 yards. 

Rice is on a massive downturn right now, and he's going up against a team that has been especially tough on wide receivers. Keep Rice on the waiver wire in your leagues; there are plenty of other wide receiver options available for Week 6.
