    Rice failed his Tampa physical, so they cut him because of the cash he was making. Is it worth taking a flier on him for a pass rush DE/OLB?

    No. His best days are behind him. Plus, that's a big chunk of change.

    IMO, whomever signs him will not pay much for a one-year deal.

    True, but does he have anything left in the tank? That's the big question. I think not, but I could be wrong. I'm quite happy with Kampman on one side and Jenkins/KGB on the other. I think KGB will be good now that he doesn't have to play 1st and 2nd down.

    You can never have too many players at any one position, IMO. He's totally worth a flier, cause we have depth and don't therefore need him to play every single down, every single game, but he'd def be worth a small one or two year deal.


    But we won't bother, so whatev :shrug:

    I was thinking he could play some OLB for us - esp on passing downs.

    He was injured last year, and for a player his age that isn't a good thing.

    What makes matters worse is that he failed his physical in TB that led to his release. It would suggest that not everything is allright, so he isn't worth taking a risk on.

    if you ask me, he's the answer to all our problems. if Thompson doesn't sign him, i'm gonna **** a brick! Oh, but he NEVER will, cuz he wants to ruin the team. BOY DO I HATE TED... nobody's been complaining about him lately, does that worry anyone else? hahahaha

    You can never have too many good defensive linemen. We can have diferent ends for different packages.

    It won't happen though.
