Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice has re-signed with the team, a league source confirmed to The Seattle Times on Wednesday.

Rice posted the news on his Twitter account, saying: “Aaayyyyooo 12s. SEA you in a few.. IM COMIN’ HOME!”

Rice had been released by the Seahawks in February. as the team attempted to created more salary-cap room for the 2014 season. Rice had been scheduled to make $9.7 million for the 2014 season, and releasing him saved $7.3 million off the cap.

Terms of the new deal were not available, but it’s believed to be at a much lower salary.

Rice earlier this week had tweeted that he had been cleared to begin cutting in workouts, a significant milestone in his recovery from a torn ACL suffered on Oct. 28 at a game in St. Louis. The 2013 season was Rice’s third in Seattle after signing with the Seahawks before the 2011 season. Rice, who will be 28 next season, should be available for the start of the 2014 season if his rehabilitation continues as scheduled.

Rice visited the New York Jets this week, according to ESPN.
