Sidney Rice has played in 16 games just twice in his seven-year career.

The oft-injured Rice has missed 25 games over the last four seasons and is now coming off his most serious ailment yet -- a torn ACL. Despite being just 27 years old, his body is beaten down. Rice was re-signed by the Seahawks Wednesday to be part of the group that replaces Golden Tate, not the whole answer. Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse will get plenty of snaps in Seattle's run-heavy scheme.

Seahawks re-signed WR Sidney Rice to a one-year contract.

Rice announced his return on his Twitter account. He flirted with the Jets on Wednesday, but that might have been a play to get the Seahawks to step up their efforts. Rice has mostly been a disappointment with the Seahawks the past three seasons and was released by the team in February, but he possesses a strong pair of reliable hands and can play on the outside. After losing Golden Tate to the Lions, the Seahawks were in the market for a a receiver.

Free agent Sidney Rice is visiting the Jets.

After locking up Chris Johnson earlier Wednesday, the Jets are now turning their attention to Rice. Rice was just cleared for football activities earlier this week, five months after tearing his ACL. He and GM John Idzik know each other from their days together in Seattle. Rice would be a passable No. 2 receiver opposite Eric Decker with Jeremy Kerley manning the slot. Rice should be cheap.

ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton considers free agent Sidney Rice a "long shot" to sign in Carolina.

Rice would be a good fit with the Panthers and shouldn't be expensive, but Carolina has next to no money to spend and doesn't have a lot of ways to create more cap space. The Seahawks have over $15 million in cap room and would be our guess for Rice's landing spot on an incentive-based, one-year deal.

ESPN New York doesn't expect the Giants to make a serious run at free agent Sidney Rice.

Rice was linked to the Giants, along with the Panthers, Seahawks, and Saints, by Profootballtalk on Monday. The G-Men could get involved if Rice's market is colder than expected, but they're not looking to dish out much cash. The Giants could use a No. 2/3 receiver type, but they're not in dire need of one with Rueben Randle and Jerrel Jernigan ready to take the next step behind Victor Cruz.
Apr 15 - 10:18 AM

The Everett Herald reports the Seahawks would be interested in re-signing free agent Sidney Rice on a low-cost, short-term deal.

Rice shouldn't be commanding any significant money coming off a torn ACL and multiple injury-riddled seasons. After losing Golden Tate and not addressing receiver in free agency, bringing Rice back would make plenty of sense. Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse could be in line for expanded roles, however.
Apr 15 - 9:46 AM

The Charlotte Observer expects the Panthers to show interest in free agent Sidney Rice but at the "right price."

Rice (torn ACL) was cleared for football activities on Monday and will now look to catch on with a team prior to the draft. He shouldn't be commanding anything more than a short-term deal with little guaranteed money due to injury concerns and average numbers. Rice would be a huge upgrade in Carolina, however.
Apr 14 - 7:54 PM

A league source tells Profootballtalk.com free agent Sidney Rice (ACL surgery) has been cleared for football activities.

He got cleared by Dr. James Andrews. PFT's Mike Florio reports the Seahawks, Giants, Saints, and Panthers all have "interest of some degree" in Rice, who has been incredibly injury prone in recent seasons but is still only 27 years old. He played college football at South Carolina and would be an excellent fit with the Panthers. Long-armed Rice has always possessed a large catch radius, which would complement Cam Newton's somewhat erratic ball placement.
Apr 14 - 2:39 PM

Seahawks S Jeron Johnson has agreed to restructure his contract.

Johnson was slapped with a second-round tender as a restricted free agent last month. He quickly signed the deal and would have been set up to earn a $2.187 million salary. Johnson's new deal can earn him "up to" $2 million on a one-year pact. He doesn't play much defense but is a special teams stalwart.

Statistical analysis shows that running back production historically drops off by 15 percent at age 28, 25 percent at age 29, and nearly 40 percent by the time running backs hit age 30.

The "peak" age for running backs is considered 27. A more extensive article on the topic is accessible at the link below, but it's certainly information for fantasy footballers to file away. Marshawn Lynch in Seattle turns 28 later this month and is coming off his finest two NFL seasons. Including playoffs, Lynch has 1,002 carries over his last three years, an average of 334 per season.

Seahawks LB Malcolm Smith does not have a defined role heading into this season.

Don't get fooled by Smith's fluky Super Bowl MVP award. He was a fill-in for most of last season, subbing for Bruce Irvin during a PED suspension and then for Bobby Wagner/K.J. Wright during injuries. Smith's best path to playing time is in packages that feature Irvin as a defensive end, thus getting four linebackers on the field.

Seahawks signed head coach Pete Carroll to a three-year extension through 2017.

Carroll has posted a 71-57 career record as a head coach, dating back to stints with the Jets and Patriots, and his record the past two seasons in Seattle is 24-8 with a Super Bowl 48 trophy. Carroll's style of play has arguably revolutionized today's NFL, as in a "copy-cat league" many teams have begun playing press coverage on defense while running the ball first on offense. Carroll also plays a major role in personnel decisions, along with GM John Schneider. In Pat Daugherty's head-coaching rankings column, Carroll came in second to only Bill Belichick. Daugherty's article can be accessed at the link below.
Apr 4 - 1:33 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks will announce a contract extension for coach Pete Carroll at a Friday press conference.

Carroll was going into the final season of his original five-year, $35 million deal he signed in 2010. It's a well-earned extension for the 62-year-old Carroll, who is one of only three coaches in football history to win both a Super Bowl and NCAA title. The Seahawks are 38-26 under Carroll's guidance, winning at least one playoff game in three of the past four seasons.

Seahawks signed LS Jorgen Hus to a three-year contract.

Famous a for YouTube trick-shot video, Hus is just a camp body. Clint Gresham has been the Seahawks' long snapper since 2010, and is signed for 2014.
Apr 3 - 1:21 PM

ESPN's John Clayton says it's still possible the Seahawks will re-sign free agent WR Sidney Rice.

Teams are taking their time with Rice as he comes off an October ACL tear. He'd at least be a fit on paper in Seattle as an outside receiver capable of helping to fill Golden Tate's shoes. The Jets and Saints have also been linked to the oft-injured 27-year-old.
