Broncos Happy to Have Welker Back

Broncos Happy to Have Welker Back

Dustin Bradford/Getty Images(ENGLEWOOD, Colo.) — The Broncos are happy to have Wes Welker back on the field after the new NFL drug policy deal was announced on Wednesday.

Welker was re-instated just in time for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks after the NFL’s new policy on performance enhancing drugs was passed.

Welker was originally suspended for four games and was not eligible to return until Oct. 6.

“It feels great, it feels great,” Welker said. ” … You really realize how much you miss it.”

Welker continued, “It seemed like every other day, I was kind of going back and forth about whether I was coming back or not.”

Quarterback Peyton Manning is among the players welcoming back Welker on the field. “Good to have Wes back,” he said. “Guys were excited when he walked in the offensive meeting this morning…I know he’s been excited to get back out here.”

Richard Sherman: I Was Not Exposed

Richard Sherman: I Was Not Exposed

Steve Dykes/Getty Images(RENTON, Wash.) — Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman still is confident in his abilities after Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen said Sherman was a “normal guy and not a shutdown corner” after their win over Seattle on Sunday.

“You know, when a guy wants his name in the paper, he’s gotta say something crazy,” Sherman said about Allen on Wednesday. “It’s humorous. I guess he wants something to tell his grandkids: ‘Remember the day I caught a couple of balls on Richard Sherman? No touchdowns, but I caught a few.’”

Sherman and the Seahawks are preparing for a Super Bowl rematch against the Broncos on Sunday.

Sherman added that he is still a shutdown cornerback although he isn’t perfect all the time. “I played pretty well,” he continued. “But it’s really funny that two little Chargers say I was exposed. One had 50 yards, and one had 60. It makes you laugh.”

Sherman was referencing Allen, who had five receptions for 55 yards, and Eddie Royal, who had seven receptions for 69 yards, respectively.

The Seahawks signed Sherman to a record four-year deal during the offseason.

Seahawks Wide Receiver Sidney Rice Retiring at Age 27

Seahawks Wide Receiver Sidney Rice Retiring at Age 27

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — After seven seasons in the NFL, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice has decided to retire from the sport of football at the age of 27.

ESPN is reporting that Rice is walking away from the game because of a history or concussions.

“After careful consideration and seven wonderful years playing in the National Football League, including the last three for the Seattle Seahawks, I have decided to retire from playing in the National Football League,” Rice said in the statement. “I have enjoyed my experiences with all of my coaches, teammates and passionate Seahawks fans.”

Rice was a second-round draft pick out of South Carolina in 2007 by the Minnesota Vikings. His best season came in 2009 when he caught 83 passes for 1,312 yards with eight touchdowns.

Injuries have kept him off the field for much of the time since that season. He played a full season in 2012, but he’s missed 25 games from 2010-20-13.

Rice had re-signed with the Seahawks for $1 million during the offseason.

Pete Carroll Takes a Shot at the 49ers

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is still committed to the run game in 2014.

Coming off their Super Bowl run, the Seahawks have put their win over the Broncos in February in the past and are focusing on one practice and one week at a time headed into September.

“We want to run the football whenever we want to,” Carroll said on Wednesday the team’s annual Town Hall meeting with fans, according to the Seattle Times.  “We are an absolutely committed running football team.”

The Seahawks will square off against the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving in a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship game and Carroll was asked about their head coach, Jim Harbaugh.

“[He's] a great coach and we love beating him,” Carroll said.

The 62-year-old coach signed a contract extension in April that will keep him with the Seahawks through the 2016 season.
