Report: Seahawks WR Sidney Rice Is Retiring From The NFL



Pro Football Talk, citing a league source, reports that Seahawks WR Sidney Rice is retiring from the NFL due to his history with concussions.

Rice not only has dealt with concussions during his NFL career, but has also suffered injuries to both shoulders and unfortunately suffered a torn ACL last October.

ESPN’s Terry Blount mentioned that Rice could have been the “odd man out” at the receiver position entering camp, so there was no guarantee that he would have made the team’s final 53-man roster coming out of the preseason.

Rice, 27, was a cap casualty several months ago, but later re-signed with Seattle to a one-year contract worth $1.4 million.

Over the course of his seven-year NFL career, Rice caught 243 passes for 3,592 yards receiving and 30 touchdowns. He’s missed a total of 25 games over the last four years.
