Report: Seahawks to release Rice

The Seattle Seahawks plan to release veteran wide receiver Sidney Rice, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The move was expected. Rice, 27, played in just eight games this past season before suffering a season-ending knee injury. He finished with 15 receptions for 231 yards and three touchdowns.

Rice is due $17.5 million in base salary over the next two seasons, ESPN reported.

Rice spent his first four NFL seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. He signed a five-year $41 million deal with Seattle as a free agent in 2011.
