Seahawks WR Sidney Rice Retires At 27

Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice decided to hang up his cleats today after attempting to recover from multiple knee procedures. Rice was signed to a 5 year $41 million dollar contract by Seahawks following his 2009 breakout season with the Vikings that saw him reel in 83 passes for 1312 yards and 8 TDs. Though he never lived up to the contract from a performance standpoint, Rice had some memorable catches during Seattle’s 2012 playoff run and was always a fixture of leadership in the locker room. He was cut this off season and resigned on a one year incentive laden deal for just above the veteran minimum. His departure opens the door for rookie Kevin Norwood and CFL superstar Chris Mathews to potentially both make the team.

    That just goes to show you, get paid while you can in the NFL because one minute you are a rising star and the next you aren’t even in the league. Good piece Adam!

    Sidney Rice owes a majority of that $41 million dollar contract to Brett Favre. No way he gets that contract if he had Tavaris Jackson throwing him the ball in 2009.

    He paved the way for injury prone Vikings WR everywhere to hit the jackpot in the Emerald City.
