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.
