Carroll says Seahawks “maybe” have a chance to get back Bryant and Rice

The Seahawks are debuting their season highlights film in Seattle tonight, with coach Pete Carroll and a few players meeting the media before hand.

Carroll, asked about the decision last week to release Red Bryant and Sidney Rice, said there was a chance that either or both could return to the Seahawks.

“Maybe we have a chance to get them back,” he told reporters prior to the screening. “Maybe we don’t. We’ll have to wait and see.”

The two players were released on Friday as the Seahawks searched for ways to cut some salary as it looks for ways to clear out some space to make other moves, such as re-signing defensive end Michael Bennett.

The two are now officially free agents and will be able to sign with any team.

Each, though, will certainly sign for far less money then they would have gotten had they not been cut by the Seahawks — Rice was due to make $8.5 million in base salary in 2014 and Bryant $4.5, as well as a $3 million bonus if he was on the roster on March 14.

Carroll and players such as Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse attended the initial screening of the official NFL Films season highlights.
