With his size and only being 24 we may be able to offer a deal the Vikes can't match.

Depends if the CBA still has franchise tags he will be franchised by the Vikings if there is no tags in the new one then we will be able to go after him.

I suppose. I was just thinking an up-and-coming WR would like to play somewhere with an established QB to mature with or an up-and-coming QB with strong potential to develop with. Hasselbeck is done and does not have a future and Charlie is a big unknown and I think it would be a stretch to say he has strong potential. Do you really think if Sidney Rice made a list of the top 15 QBs he wants to play with in this league, that Hasselbeck or Charlie is going to be on that list? Most of the time it takes a lot of money to get a player to settle.

At the moment I think anything is possible to an extent. Until the CBA is worked out its all a guessing game, but I would love to bring Sidney Rice to the Pacific Northwest to play along BMW and Obi1manubi.

Klivlend
02-17-2011, 07:10 PM
Ya, but why would he go somewhere to wait and hope for a good QB when he could sign somewhere that already has a good QB? Don't get me wrong, I would love to see him in a Hawks uniform. I just can't imagine a realistic scenario with him playing in the 206. Hell, who know, Pete's recruiting skills are still probably pretty sharp.

furmat60
02-17-2011, 07:16 PM
Well, Douchemenzdah chose use over MIN. If anyone could land Rice, it's Pete. I really hope we do. Man, Rice, Gallery, and Asomugha would be thee greatest off season EVAR.

And the Vikes are going to get one this off season so whats your point? I think he will wait to see how Vikes QB situation shakes before deciding anything. However if he likes new QB even a little he will stay a Viking.

The Seahawks are primed for a huge offseason. But with our inexperience and young age at WR maybe we might go a little older. What the Hawks need is a good line and a top notch corner such as Nnamdi Asomugah, Champ Bailey, Charles Woodson, Antonio Cromartie, or possibly go older for a year until they get one by getting Ronde Barber.

furmat60
02-17-2011, 09:59 PM
Cromartie might be done with the Jets. I'd rather have Asomugha though. Woodson is definitely going to stay in Greenbay, and the Denver organization said that they want Champ Bailey to be a Bronco for life. I can't believe Ronde Barber still produces, that guy is amazing. I think our best shot is going to come at getting Asomugha, but it's going to cost us.

Cro has mad speed and skills but he is a F'n D bag. There is no way I would want to be team mates with that F head. Jets are going after asomugha with letting Cro walk.

If they let Cromartie walk we can grab him. I know he's a douchebag, but the guy is good. We need talent, and if we keep worrying about everyone's character, we're never going to have a good team. Sometimes you have to let the petty **** go and go after talent.

Yup...

I just put it in the Free Agency Thread!

LET'S GO GET HIM (As soon as there is a CBA)!

House
02-21-2011, 04:38 PM
On Monday, we received official confirmation of that which was expected since at least last week: the Minnesota Vikings placed the franchise tag on linebacker Chad Greenway, and not wide receiver Sidney Rice. While this opens the door for Greenway's representation to continue extension talks with the Vikes while protecting him from other teams, Rice's future is more muddled.

Until Feb. 23, the Vikes can place the transition tag on Rice, though there have been reports -- notably from Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network -- that they won't. [Editor's note: As Doug Farrar of Football Outsiders notes, they'd leave themselves open to some poison pill revenge from the Seattle Seahawks if they did]. The other option is a long-term extension, and according to Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, that might require a deal that puts him amongst the Top 5 players at his position. The Vikes have an exclusive negotiating window until March 4.

After March 4 -- and pending the resolution of the labor impasse -- is when the fun begins. Although Rice missed much of the 2010 season, he was one of the most dangerous receiving weapons in the league in 2009, and at 24-years-old, is sure to attract a considerable amount of interest in free agency. One speculative possibility -- pending Rice's health being up to par -- is the New England Patriots. Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe tweeted Monday that Rice could be a match for the Pats' offensive system, at a position of relative need.

Bill Barnwell of Football Outsiders, on the other hand, doesn't believe Rice would be worth as much to the Pats as his likely contract value.

Meanwhile, over on our AFC West blog, Bill Williamson makes the case that three of the teams in that division -- the San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders and especially the Kansas City Chiefs -- may show some interest in Rice once free agency begins.

As much as i have always disliked cro he is a player most teams would want, and i have always thought he says some really stupid things becuase his head coach does the same thing, maybe if he was under pete he would be different?

I know its not last years statistics....but profootball focus rated Cromartie just out of the top 10 in tackling inefficiency rating for the 2009 season. (The higher you are the worse it is)

(Number of Missed Tackles/[Number of Missed Tackles + Number of Solo Tackles]) x 100 = TIR

Cromartie's TIR was a 16.22 (so he may indeed be a bad tackler and/or scared of contact), interestingly, Asomugha's was even worse (4th worst actually) at 20.51.

Also of interest, OJ Atogwe was 9th best among safeties, sporting a 5.08 TIR and only missing 3 tackles in 59 solo attempts.

Cromartie is a top 10 corner. No doubt about it.

02-28-2011, 10:46 PM
We can still dream, and if I were running the Seattle Seahawks or St. Louis Rams, the 24-year-old Rice would rank high on my list of targets. But first I'd want team doctors to fully assess the hip injury that required surgery and affected Rice last season. Without that injury, the Vikings presumably would have re-signed Rice by now or considered naming him their franchise player, a designation they used for linebacker Chad Greenway.
Rice caught 83 passes for 1,312 yards and eight touchdowns during the 2009 season. He was looking like the NFL's next great wideout until the hip injury struck during the NFC title game. Rice played only six games in 2010, catching 17 passes for 280 yards and two scores.

Seattle and St. Louis make the most sense among NFC West suitors because, unlike Arizona and San Francisco, neither team has invested heavily in the receiver position. The Seahawks also have ties to Rice now that former Vikings offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell has taken the same job in Seattle.

STL is getting a #1 regardless of whether it's Rice, Julio, Green, or Baldwin. The difference is that I doubt the Hawks would move up to take one of those guys if they missed out on Rice with so many other needs. It's been clear that Carroll wants an elite talent at WR though so I expect them to be chasing Rice hard.

we deffinatly have a shot at him as does St. louis unfortunatly with a young prospect at corner and being a little farther along in the rebuild process than us im not sure on there cap room though, I think we have just as good of a chance to land him though and we need to ecause nomater who is at QB next year for us he will make them so much better along with BMW wheather its matt or charlie or a rookie it would help to have someone like rice to through the ball up to but another thing to remember is when Burlson was leaveing minisota he was supposed to be great and he was kinda a bust so you never know how rice will really turn out at least thats my take

I think Julio Jones upped his stock and could go to the Redskins which is good and A.J Green to either the Bengals or Carolina (Although Carolina has good recievers they will need to replace Steve Smith.)

Matt Jones had a cocaine issue. He looks like he finally is got his past behind him. He was with the Bengals last season.

We could draft a WR late of even look at the undrafteds. Michael Floyd has great size (6'3" 220lbs), hands and is a good route runner.

That year Rice had a QB not Jackson and injured Favre and he wasn't injured I also said Almost Shen Almost if he can return to form I don't see why he couldn't get close to Fitz numbers same size both grab the ball out the Air, Rice is a Level below Fitz aleast the year we were able to see
But he could get a lot better he is still yet to reach full potential and is young Rice and BMW is a nice combo of Speed and Size


I hope we get Kolb I think we are the team to get him Vik's will get a QB in the draft IMO and reports say Us and the viks are the teams interested IMO I'm just glad the Hassle is gone I never liked him IDK Why I think he's a better teacher then Franchise QB I think he has a future as a QB coach Kolb would be Perfect in a WC Offense short accurate passes and able to scramble and with are 3Headed Monster at HB all we need is a better WR Core, IMO I see Kolb like Drew Brees in SD

For the record I remembered the Matt part but could not remember the Jones part.

Rice can't come close to Fitz. Maybe in yards but not in TD's. Fitz without a decent QB and while forcing double teams put up damn near as good as Rice did with a healthy Favre and ton of other weapons that kept him from being focused on.

For the record I remembered the Matt part but could not remember the Jones part.

You call this healthy?

It was one of his best years, but um, he was not completely healthy.

On second thought that hip is a problem, I forgot it was his hip in 09 maybe we should stay away from rice, his hip might be a problem! What other FA WR are there? I know steve smith(Giants)! I think we should try for a WR in the draft or Trade for one

Rice: He has had ample time to recover from the injury. Should've had the surgery as soon as '09 season ended.

Edwards: Off the field issues, a DIVA and suspect hands. No thanks

Smith: He's a Possession WR. We already have one in BMW. Coming off of shoulder/knee injuries worries me too.

Sims-Walker: I like the guy. He can spread the field. Some character/work ethic issues, but I'd take a look at him.
