Sidney Rice


i'm curious what you all think of Sidney Rice, who is reportedly interested in testing FA in the coming year. he's only 25, 6'4", and is capable of being both a deep thread and an over-the-middle guy. he's probably one of my favorite young receivers. he got a bit of flak over his injury last year, but there's no reason that he can't bounce back. he is a pretty high-character guy who runs several charities in the offseason, and arose out of a pretty bad situation in his youth to become a really fantastic player.

with santonio holmes and braylon edwards headlining a young, talented market with lots of big names, rice would still be expensive but likely not obnoxious to bring in for a long-term deal. to me, pairing him with stevie johnson gives us two big, tall receivers with long careers ahead of them.

i realize some people are going to say that WR isn't a position of need, but i'd dispute that. we've got johnson, parrish, and loads of UDFAs. nelson and jones had great years last year for their draft position, but it's undeniable that Rice would add a huge offensive element to Gailey's already pass-happy offense. i also realize that Rice will likely command 5 million a year or more...and i'm OK with that. i think he's a really unique combination of size, speed, and talent. and you all remember that leaping, spinning catch in our game against the Vikings this year on his first game back from injury.

what do you all think?
