Quote:
Per a league source, receiver Sidney Rice has decided to retire from football. The source says that the 27-year-old Rice’s decision arises from his history of concussions.


My guess would also be he wasn't feeling all too confident about his chances to make the roster potential as well. The idea of a healthy Sidney was nice, but he needs to what's best for his health

That's too bad - I wonder if we'll bring in another WR to compete in camp.

I hope this opens the door for Chris Matthews to get the #6 spot.

Good luck to Rice - I have respect for anyone who has the wherewithal to hang it up early in favour of health. He's accomplished some things in his career and he has a ring - no sense in putting your future at risk if you aren't able to.

I think it all but assures Ricardo Lockette gets that #6 spot personally. Is Matthews PS eligible?

yes he is, I don't get Lockette personally. He shouldn't be losted as a WR - he's a ST player like Slater from the Pats.

And Slater is listed as a WR on the Pats roster.
