Sidney Rice contract details revealed

The contract details for Seattle receiver Sidney Rice have been revealed this morning.

According to multiple reports, the total value of Rice’s one-year contract is $1.4 million.

Rice has a $1 million base salary and a split salary of $500,000 in case of injury.

He also received a $150,000 signing bonus and has $250,000 in roster bonuses, equaling $15,625 for each week he is on the 46-man active roster.

Rice had been due to received $9.7 million in 2014 under the terms of the five-year deal he signed as a free agent prior to the 2011 season.

Seattle released Rice and defensive end Red Bryant in’ February to create salary cap space — cutting Rice cleared $7.3 million.

Bryant signed quickly with Jacksonville, but the Seahawks — and other NFL teams — waited on Rice to see his progress in rehabbing a knee injury suffered last Oct. 28 at St. Louis. He was cleared last week to begin cutting on the knee, a significant step.

Rice doesn’t turn 28 until Sept. 1, so if healthy he could still be a key part of the Seattle offense in 2014.
