Ex-Viking Sidney Rice to be released by Seahawks, per report

Posted by: Michael Rand under Vikings Updated: February 21, 2014 - 3:40 PM

 

Things didn't exactly work out as planned for Sidney Rice and the Seahawks. He signed a five year, $41 million free agent deal to leave the Vikings and join Seattle after the 2010 season. Three seasons, many injuries and just 97 regular-season catches later, the Seahawks are reportedly cutting him because of his high cap number compared to his production.

 

Per ESPN.com:

He missed the final eight games and the playoffs after suffering a torn ACL at St. Louis on Oct. 28.

Rice was slowed by injuries throughout his time with Seattle. His 2011 season was marred by concussion and shoulder problems that limited him to nine games.

He played in all 16 games in 2012 and had 50 catches for 748 yards and seven touchdowns. It was his most productive season since 2009, when he went to the Pro Bowl after finishing the season with 1,312 receiving yards and eight scores.

We'll always remember rice for that big 2009 season ... and for being one of the guys who submarined the 2010 season.
