Norwood is most likely a lock to make this team now.


I think he always ways although we thought the same thing about Chris Harper too.

I think Rice was battling with Ricardo Lockette for the final WR spot on the roster.

That's how you win football games. Brutalize the opposing defense.

On topic. I always severely over rated Sidney "monster Rice. He absolutely killed San Diego on 3rd downs.

I thought for sure he would go on to be a regular in the pro bowl after his 09 campaign, had great size, leaping ability, and made those wow catches all season.

Hope it works out - otherwise I'm going to be pretty peeved we didn't take Jordan Matthews (if we stayed at 40).

Good luck to Rice in the future - I posted in the Seahawks forum that I have the utmost respect for anyone who chooses health over playing one more year.

Good for him to walk away while he still can.

I'll always remember him for that unbelievable 2009 season. He was such a stud.

Thankfully, he was able to make his money and win a championship while calling it quits early.
I've had my man crushes on Minnesota WR's throughout the recent years and it started with Rice. Guy was a monster when everything fell right for him in 09. Sad to see it end this way for him.

Disappointing but not surprised to see his career end this way. Injuries bugged him all the time.

Don't blame him at 27 for choosing his health over realistically playing a couple more injury plagued years.

Harvin basically missed all of last season. Rice missed 8 and a 1/2 games. Worked out well still I'd say. Lynch isn't getting 300. I'd say around 250. Michael is a stud who will cut into his carries quite a bit. Which is a great thing. Seattle still has Baldwin and Kearse who are reliable receivers and P Rich and Norwood who look to make an impact as rookies. Not worried about Seattles WR situation even if Harvin was to get hurt.

The Seahawks receiving core is now full of frequently injured and extremely inexperienced WRs. Hopefully the o-line plays much better this season.

Good for him that he can walk away from the game on his terms. Hopefully he was smart with his money and can live comfortably with his family the rest of their lives. He was such a great WR when he played in Minnesota.

Its too bad he couldn't stay on the field, but atleast he gets to go out with a ring. He likely would have been fighting for the #6 WR spot on the roster.

I'm glad he left with a ring. Dude deserved a ring.

I agree too. He probably was fighting for that 6th WR spot. I'm hoping Kevin Norwood can step up and be that big bodied WR that Seattle needs.


On a side note Rice will probably do great outside of football. He already owns 5 Wingstop franchises around the Seattle area.


Jermaine Kearse is nice as a big body.

Rice was a very talented player, the 2009 season clearly demonstrated this. Rice just couldnt stay healthy and the Vikes are fortunate they did not give him a big contract.

Rice is doing the smart thing, he just didnt seem cut out to play football between all of his injuries over his career. Rice did get one big pay day, so things arent too bad for him since he is only 27.

One of those guys that had 1 elite level year and just never was healthy afterwards. At least he got his money and then a ring, many guys arent so lucky

It hasn't really gotten worse though only key part we lost was Tate.

Yeah, that wide receiver corps really carried them all the way to the Super Bowl last year... Rolling Eyes
