Sidney Rice | WR

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.

Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, according to a source, and likely will miss the remainder of the season.
Huddle Up: More tough injury news for the Seahawks as they saw their third-leading receiver go down Monday night. Rice will have his season cut short for the third time in four years, opening the door for more work for Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin and Percy Harvin, when he is activated to play.

Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice left in the second quarter of the Week 8 game against the Seattle Seahawks in the second quarter due to a left-knee injury. He was taken to the locker room and is doubtful to return.
Huddle Up: Rice, who failed to record a catch on 3 targets in the game, came up gimpy after a pass was thrown his way in the end zone. Rice is third on the squad with 15 receptions for 231 yards but is tied for the team lead with 3 TDs. An update as to the severity of the injury should be forthcoming.

Seattle Seahawks WRs Sidney Rice and Stephen Williams each took part in a full practice session Wednesday, Sept. 4.
Huddle Up: Rice is still nursing his Euro-treated knee, while Williams is working his way back from a head injury. The Seahawks expect to have both at their disposal this weekend.

Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice (knee) is expected to practice Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Huddle Up: Despite missing a combined 17 games in 2010 and '11, Rice played in all 16 last year with the Seahawks, who need more of the same with fellow wideout Percy Harvin already expected to be out most -- if not all -- of the season.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Sidney Rice (knee) will not play in the team's third preseason game Friday, Aug. 23 in Green Bay, but added that he is being held out as a precaution. Rice is expected to be ready for the start of the season.
Huddle Up: Rice, who played in all 16 games for the first time since 2009 with the Vikings, received treatment on his patellar tendon in Switzerland in late July and has been downgraded in rankings because of it and his preseason absence. However, he could prove to be a late-round steal.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Sidney Rice (knee) will participate in practice Sunday, Aug. 4.
Huddle Up: Rice was recently in Switzerland where he received some kind of secretive non-surgical procedure on his knee. It's good news that Rice will be returning to practice since Percy Harvin is out for the foreseeable future while recovering from hip surgery. However, expect Seattle to manage Rice's practice reps throughout training camp. Rice is a risky fantasy pick considering his injury history and the fact that the Seahawks rely so heavily on the run.

Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice returned from Switzerland after receiving treatment on his knee. He won't require surgery and should return early in the preseason.
Huddle Up: Rice projects to be the Seahawks' go-to receiver with Percy Harvin out--assuming Rice gets back on the field quickly himself.

Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice is in Switzerland for what head coach Pete Carroll says is a non-surgical procedure on his knee. "When he comes back, he'll go right back on the field," Carroll said Tuesday, July 30. "So he didn't get hurt."
Huddle Up: Rice is likely getting a treatment that's not cleared in the United States. Either that or he really likes chocolate and yodeling.

Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice (knee) is in Switzerland getting treatment on a knee, according to head coach Pete Carroll. The coach added that Rice won't need surgery and doesn't expect him to miss any preseason or regular season games.
Huddle Up: Even with Carroll's confidence, it's not the best of news, considering the uncertainty surrounding fellow wideout Percy Harvin. Rice did play in all 16 games last seeason after missing a combined 17 games over the previous 2 years.
