Former NFL defensive end Simeon Rice said earlier this year that he feels “like a super hero with no one to save.”
Rice finally has found himself a Lois Lane.
The New York Sentinels of the UFL have officially announced that Rice will launch his football comeback in the upstart league that begins its inaugural season in October.
Rice played for the Cardinals and the Buccanneers, helping Tampa to a Super Bowl win in 2002. (QBKilla might have had a little something to do with that title, too.) At the outset of training camp in 2007, the Bucs cut Rice, who bounced between the Broncos and Colts before falling out of the NFL.
The Sentinels announced 16 other players on Thursday. The only name that caught our eye was former NFL running back LaBrandon Toefield. And Glenn Holt.
Actually, Holt hasn’t signed with the UFL.
