Seahawks Release Sidney Rice

90 posts in this topic

The guys was making $8m a year. Why would anyone throw the "if he's cheap" line out there?

 

Given that he was just released and has the "always injured" label attached to him, I would think he'd have to take a substantial paycut to stay around.

Considering Smitty is the only WR under contract I think it would be a decent gamble.

Seattle didn't need him with Baldwin and Kearse developing the way they did.  Why pay a guy 8 million a year when you've hit the jack pot and have two guys on rookie contracts playing lights out football?  Seattle did the right thing.  They put him on the shelf and they won with cheap guys so Seattle virtually loses nothing with Rice gone.   Seattle is very deep at WR...it's ridiculous.

His aunt sometimes cuts my hair at Great Clips.  I approve.

I doubt it will be as significant as you think. His name alone puts him at the top of available WRs now.

Wrong! Mcnutt & King are under contract

I could see him signing a cheap 1 year deal to come home to the Carolinas and prove his worth.  If he doesn't work out, just cut him in training camp.  I don't think he'll end up with another massive deal at this stage in his career, but if he puts up a big year somewhere on a 1 year deal, he might get one a year later.

I want him solely because we only had 2 former Gamecocks on the team this past year.

    • I also want to take this space of internet to announce that I'm still so fuging happy we got Monk. 
    • Not really a fan of MCW. Not even sure if he is better than Sessions tbh. I don't think Teague will want to be a backup much less take the MLE, but who knows- might not be a market for him. Livingston would be incredible but don't think we have the money and why would he leave Golden State unless they don't offer him anything.  Here's someone that's not a free agent, but I would not mind us taking a shot on: Dante Exum. With the Jazz trading up to get Donovan Mitchell Exum looks to be ousted as the PG of the future there. He's had his struggles but he's extremely talented and has never really had a great mentor like Kemba would be.  I'd give them Sessions (lol), Jeremy Lamb plus a couple second rounders. Would not give up any of our core: Batum, MKG, Cody, Kemba, Dwight, etc. Wonder if they would bite on that? It's crazy that second rounders really do become valuable. If we had an extra second we could have had Mason + Bacon likely.  Part of me wonders whether or not we will try to have Monk run some backup PG. That would be a mistake IMO. He needs to be running off screens all day.
    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
