Sidney Rice was one of the biggest names on the free agent market last year. He was seen as a big-time risk because of injuries, but he still scored a huge deal from the Seahawks.
One year later, Rice’s rep as an injury prone player has not improved.
Tom Pelissero of espn1500.com reports that Rice underwent surgeries on both his shoulders after the season, not just the shoulder with a torn labrum.
Rice also struggled with a knee injury during the season and he finished the year on injured reserve with a concussion. He wound up only playing nine games during the season with 484 yards.
Paid $18.5 million guaranteed, Rice should be in Seattle to stay. He was a risky signing and thus far the Seahawks have to be concerned they won’t get a great return on their investment.
