Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice has decided to retire, according to a league source. Rice has decided to retire due to a history of concussions.
Huddle Up: Not that he was slated to be a big part of the Seattle offense anyway, but now the Seahawks need to find someone else to throw a minimal number of times to. And a preposition is a terrible thing to end a sentence with.

Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice (knee) said he hopes to be able to do some things during the team's minicamp in June. Rice also wants to be a full participant when training camp begins.
Huddle Up: Rice will likely return to a reduced role in Seattle as long as Percy Harvin remains healthy, but if he is to have any value on fantasy draft day he'll need to be on the field during training camp--preferably before.

The Seattle Seahawks reportedly will re-sign WR Sidney Rice to an undisclosed 1-year deal.
Huddle Up: It appears as if Rice, who received interest from the Jets and Panthers, is sticking around for a 4th season in Seattle but keep in mind he's played in only 9 games or fewer in 3 of the past 4 seasons, including this past season when a knee injury limited him to 8 games and 15 catches.

The Carolina Panthers might show an interest in free-agent WR Sidney Rice (Seahawks), but only at the right price.
Huddle Up: The Panthers have already signed Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood this offseason, so why not throw another veteran wideout with something to prove into the mix as they completely rebuild their WR corps?

Free-agent WR Sidney Rice (knee) has been cleared to participate in football activities by Dr. James Andrews, according to a source. The Seattle Seahawks, New York Giants, New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers are believed to have some interest in Rice.
Huddle Up: Rice is among a handful of solid veteran wideouts still looking for a team this offseason. Now that he's healthy, he can start demonstrating his wares and land a club before offseason workouts ramp up.

Free-agent WR Sidney Rice (Seahawks) could be a value signing for the Carolina Panthers. He is still just 27 years old, and he is tall with great hands.
Huddle Up: Carolina fans are hoping for a big-name WR acquisition, but the team's draft position and salary-cap situation likely will lead to the team to focus on second-tier and third-tier value options such as Rice, who's had only 1 NFL season with more than 50 catches and 750 receiving yards.

The Seattle Seahawks officially released WR Sidney Rice and DE Red Bryant Friday, Feb. 28.
Huddle Up: Rice barely made a blip this season, missing much of the year with an injury. Bryant was a mainstay along the defensive line, though his role diminished somewhat this season. The move will save Seattle about $12 million in cap space.

The Seattle Seahawks likely will release WR Sidney Rice this offseason in order to create $7.3 million in salary cap space.
Huddle Up: With a (hopefully) healthy Percy Harvin and the emergence of Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate and Jermaine Kearse, the Seahawks simply don't have a need for Rice.

The Seattle Seahawks may consider releasing WR Sidney Rice this offseason unless he accepts a substantial pay cut. He is scheduled to make an $8.5 million base salary in 2014 and count $9.7 million against the salary cap.
Huddle Up: Seattle managed just fine with Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse, and in theory they'll have more games of Percy Harvin next season as well. That makes Rice an expensive luxury, one the Seahawks may opt not to bring back.
