Sidney Rice, 27, has announced his retirement from the NFL. Though his career was plagued with injuries, Rice still proved to be a valuable player during his time with the Seahawks.
In 2011, he caught 32 passes for 484 yards and two touchdowns, until concussions and a shoulder problem forced him on IR in the final seven games. In 2012, he started 16 games for the only time in his career and led the Seahawks with 50 receptions, 748 receiving yards and seven TD catches. Before going on IR last season, Rice caught 15 passes for 231 yards and three TDs.
Thanks for everything you’ve done and sacrificed for us Sid (especially in OT against the Bears). You will be missed!
