More teams reported interested in Rice

While the Seahawks cut Sidney Rice a few weeks ago to clear up salary cap space, it’s been confirmed that the team all along has not shut the door on his possible return.

That was true even before Golden Tate was signed away by Detroit, though the departure of Tate would seem to increase Seattle’s need to make some additions at receiver, be it through free agency or the draft.

Reports today, though, indicate that the Seahawks might have some competition for Rice, as the Jets and the Saints are also thought interested in signing him.

The Seahawks cut Rice because he was due to make $8.5 million in 2014. He won’t sign for that much with either the Seahawks or a new team.

As noted in our blog post on this last week, he is also recovering from an ACL injury suffered Oct. 28 against the Rams, but is said to be ahead of schedule in his rehab.
