  • Tampa Bay releases Rice.

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/7064530?MSNHPHMA

    As training camps begin, a surprise name has suddenly been added to the open market.

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday released Pro Bowl defensive end Simeon Rice, FOXSports.com has learned. In a meeting between Rice and Tampa management, the team asked the 12th-year player out of Illinois to take a pay cut. When Rice refused, the team released him.

    The timing is odd, to say the least, as Rice showed up and checked in to Bucs training camp before being called in to the meeting.

    The Bucs left open the option for Rice to return, though that does not seem likely at this point.

    Rice began his career in Arizona, before moving to Tampa Bay prior to the 2001 season. Rice has recorded double-digit tackles in eight of his 11 pro seasons, including every year from 2001-05. The 32-year-old Rice has also consistently been among the league leaders in forced fumbles.

    The No. 3 overall pick in the 1996 draft, Rice was a two-time Pro Bowler for the Bucs, making the team in 2003 and 2004.

          Well since Gruden occasionally raids our players, why not?

          But I have a feeling he goes to... ... full circle... Arizona.

            I don't think so. Not enough mula in the checkbook for him.

                  i wonder what he'd play like here. if we signed him, we'd have one hell of a rotation going.
                  Orange Crush Fantasy League sign ups. All the cool kids are doing it.


                  Rivers has probably now the fastest release in the NFL that Favre is retired. - riversOWNSdonks
                  Rivers has the potential to be better than Brady or any QB ever - riversOWNSdonks

                    He can go play anywhere he wants, why would he choose the Lions or the Raiders. Seems to me like the broncos would be a good fit. Rice would be great for our youngsters. If pick him up we could just cut or trade Lang. A late round pick would be fine.

                      Because Rod Marinelli was his D-line coach in Tampa... (Detroit Head Coach)

                        That would be nice to see him back playing with Lynch.I bet Lynch is speaking on him now

                          Rice may not be able to pass a physical!

                          But it would be pretty sweet if Denver could bring him in to see if he has anything left.

                          We're hearing Langs name coming up more often as a player on the bubble, aren't we?

                          Wasn't he asked to take a paycut and refused? I don't want to start a rumor, it's that for some reason I have that in my head....

                              I bet Shanny remember that too.If Rice comes over Lang wont be the only DE cut.They will start falling like dominoes
