Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice hasn't played a game in a Seahawks uniform since October and he might never play a game in one again. Seattle is expected to released the 27-year-old wide receiver, according to ESPN.com.

Although the Seahawks haven't officially announced the move, Rice sent out a tweet on Friday night signaling that the end is probably near.

Rice hasn't played for the Seahawks since Week 8, when he suffered a season-ending ACL injury against the Rams. When Rice went down on Oct. 28, he was the team's third leading receiver with 231 yards, trailing Doug Baldwin and Golden Tate, who had 372 and 439 yards at the time. Percy Harvin was still on the physically unable to perform list in Week 8 and had yet to play a game with the Seahawks.

Since signing in Seattle before the 2011 season, Rice has only made it through an entire regular season once in three years. Counting his career in Minnesota, Rice has only made it through a season unscathed two times in seven years.

By cutting Rice, the Seahawks will save $7.3 million against the 2014 salary cap. Rice originally signed with Seahawks after the lockout ended in July 2011, when he inked a five-year, $41 million deal.
