He's likely a cap cut by the Seahawks due to an enormous cap number.
He has struggled with injuries, but in his one fill season as a starter with Brett Favre, he lit it up (and the Ravens in the process). He dropped off in Seattle due to them not being a heavy pass team. Couple that with injuries and he may not come too expensive. He'd be an awesome complimentary piece and might stop the need for a receiver so early. What do you all think?

I wouldn't mind the Ravens giving him  a shot if he's signed but he's definitely a risk because of his durability issues.

I don't want him. Waste of a roster spot and waste of a season on someone that will not be the least bit effective for us. Rather have Maclin if we are taking a chance on someone with durability issues. Miles Austin wouldn't be a big risk either. Rice had one good season with Favre and nothing after that really.

Bringing him in on a prove it type deal where we can cut him in the preseason if he is not doing anything would be a good move imo. I always thought he had a lot of potential. Sadly, injuries have majorly derailed him from living up to even half of that. But just bringing him in as a camp body would definitely not hurt in the least.

I would prefer Jeremy Maclin or Danario Alexander over Sidney Rice. All three are similar and were out the 2013 season with an injury. I think we could get either Maclin or Alexander for a cheaper price with the same upside, maybe even more. I wouldn't want to spend a ton of money on Rice when we could draft a just as good receiver and use that money for other FA signings.

They might pass on his injury concerns and keep Cooper instead. from i've read, they cant resign both.

I'd be open to the idea.  I wouldn't say that Rice would stop us from drafting a receiver high, but he could be a nice buy low candidate.  I know we showed quite a bit of interest last time he was on the open market.  I just worry about all of those injuries.  I wouldn't invest too much into him considering we're likely to only get a few games out of him a year.  If he comes cheap, sure.

If the price is right I would welcome that move, but only IF.

I agree with this, but I think someone will pay him more than that. For the same reason teams overpaid (dramatically) for Ellerbe and Kruger in particular.

I wouldn't dismiss the idea. Only if he gets signed to a "prove it" contract. Something cheap for 1 year. But it depends on what direction the offense is going in. If we plan on running 4 WR's it could be a good signing. I don't think it's likely though.

I din't like him, he was never really that good. Now that person I would like to try on a 1 year "trial" deal is Nick Collins

I like the guys skill level, but not his injury history. I think he will be looking for money we can't afford. As well, if we did pick him up, it might mean that we would feel safe not taking a pass catcher early in the draft which would be a mistake.

Depends on the price - just about every receiver on the market this year has a history of injury concerns.  Ideally if we were to sign someone, I'd hope it's someone young enough to stick around 3-4 years at least, but I think the best option is to address some other needs in free agency, maybe the offensive line, and draft a receiver and/or tight end.

If he signed the vet minimum with no guarantees then maybe but I'm not hip on the idea.

I am 50/50 on this signing, could be an addition. But our own (few) receivers gonna be late in their development cause of the shift in adding rice.
