Free-agent WR Sidney Rice gets medical clearance after ACL tear
Sidney Rice can start shopping himself around to NFL teams. The free agent wide receiver was medically cleared to resume football activities on Monday.
Any NFL team still looking for a wide receiver might want to give Sidney Rice a call because he's finally healthy. The former Seahawks receiver, who tore his ACL in October, tweeted on Monday that he's been medically cleared to resume football activities.
Rice was injured in a Week 8 win over the Rams. Before tearing his ACL, Rice was the Seahawks third leading receiver with 231 yards over the season's first seven weeks, trailing Doug Baldwin (372) and Golden Tate (439).
The Seahawks released Rice in February in a cost-cutting move that cleared up $7.3 million in 2014 cap space.
When Rice is healthy, he generally produces, but staying healthy has been a problem during his seven seasons in the NFL. Since his rookie year of 2007, Rice has only made it through an entire season twice (2009, 2012). In 2009 with the Vikings, Rice was voted to the Pro Bowl after tallying 1,312 receiving yards, the fourth-highest total in the NFL that year.
