Seattle Seahawks rumors: Sidney Rice re-signing with Seahawks this offseason?

Seattle Seahawks rumors have the team interested in bringing back receiver Sidney Rice. These Seahawks rumors about Rice surfaced on Thursday (March 13), a day after the team lost receiver Golden Tate to the Detroit Lions. According to a report from NFL analyst Ian Rapoport, despite releasing the veteran receiver to save cap space this season, the team is now interested in bringing him back.

Golden Tate To Detroit Lions

On the surface this story seems to make a lot of sense simply because the team has a lack of depth at the receiver position. Losing Tate was a big blow to the offense, so finding someone else that might be affordable in free agency is one route for the team to take. They will likely request that Rice takes a big pay cut to return to the team, but it may be exactly what he needs. A one-year deal where he proves that he is worth a long-term deal in the 2015 NFL offseason could be the perfect scenario for a guy that missed almost an entire year of football.

There had been other Seattle Seahawks rumors indicating that the team would be looking toward the 2014 NFL Draft to help add more receivers to the depth chart, so this might just be a quick fix until the front office and coaching staff can figure out what comes next. As it stands, the two top receivers on the current roster are going to be Doug Baldwin and Percy Harvin, but the lack of depth is something that nearly every football analyst has been talking about since before the team won the Super Bowl.
