Default Frazier says Vikes have extended Rice a contract

Encouraging news. I just hope that he signs, and then I hope we have an NFL season to watch him play in. lol

i'm just waiting for him to sign the deal and decide to have surgery right before the season again so he misses more games. very unhappy with rice. i'm sure i'm alone on this, but i think the best outcome would have been to give him the highest restricted free agent tag, and have some team stupid enough to sign him to an offer sheet and give their first and third for him.

I won't be heartbroken if Rice leaves. It's so easy to find sleeper WRs in the draft, i.e. Mike Williams, Mike Wallace, Eddie Royal

If it's so easy, then why haven't the Vikings found one in the past 20 years?

Yup, that would be terrible. I don't have money for a new one either haha. And I always have had a thing for tall, long, athletic receivers. I wouldn't even want anyone elses jersey.

Its a good sign at the very least that that we are willing to offer up a deal even with the unease that the current labor situation has the league in.

Man, i hope that Rice stays. I love his potential & I too, have a Rice jersey that i don't want to throw on the pile of Moss, Culpepper, & Berger jerseys.

piss on sidney rice



Sidney Rice will not re-sign with Vikings before free agency

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on February 27, 2011, 9:55 PM EST

Sidney Rice has chosen to find out what’s behind door number two, after the labor mess is taken care.

Rice’s agent Drew Rosenhaus told Adam Schefter of ESPN that Rice will not re-sign with the Vikings before March 4. Minnesota made a multi-year offer to deal to Rice, but clearly it wasn’t close to being accepted.

Perhaps the Vikings just made an offer to appear like they are doing everything possible to keep Rice. It’s more likely that the team and Rosenhaus view Rice’s value very differently.

It’s possible that the Vikings could still try to place a restricted free agent tender on Rice, who is a four-year veteran. Under the rules of the uncapped year, fourth-year players were RFAs.

It’s expected that Rice will be an unrestricted free agent after a new CBA is reached, but the truth is we’re all just guessing at this point.

Honestly not that surprised. He's going to try to cash in on his 2009 season. And he's got Rosenhaus in his ear to try to make that happen. Hope they can bring him back, but I'm glad they tagged Greenway instead of him.

There's no way we can go wide receiver again in round 1 considering how many other needs we have.

I'm betting the CBA just gets extended by a year or so, so I'm guessing we will keep Rice for at least another year.

Chad Greenway signs his franchise tender

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 1, 2011, 4:31 PM EST

Another NFL player has locked in his franchise tag salary, just in case the rules following a work stoppage aren’t so player-friendly.

Chad Greenway signed his one-year tender on Tuesday and will make more than $10 million in 2011. There was a chance that Greenway could have been a restricted free agent after a new CBA is reached, so signing the deal ensures his big salary.

The Vikings chose Greenway over Sidney Rice for the tag, who is likely to hit unrestricted free agency eventually.

Greenway joins Dolphins nose tackle Paul Soliai, Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley and Panthers center Ryan Kalil as players that signed their tenders. Raiders linebacker Kamerion Wimbley is expected to sign his tender.

I feel a hell of a lot better about giving Greenway a long term deal then I do about Sidney Rice one.

Yea. That's why I thought we would tag rice and sign Greenway to a long term deal, but I guess that they're quite afraid of the CBA and all of that as far as negotiations go.

Its no big deal if Rice walks, Harvin and Moss should pick up the slack just fine. Wait. ****. Eat **** Childress. Apparently Schefter said we might be cutting Berrian soon. We could be pretty thin at receiver next year.

Vikings issue RFA tenders to Sidney Rice, Ray Edwards, three others

Posted by Mike Florio on March 2, 2011, 10:49 PM EST

Receiver Sidney Rice plans to test the free-agent waters before deciding whether to remain a Viking. If the Vikings have their way, he’ll do it as a restricted free agent.

Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the team has applied restricted free agency tenders to Rice, defensive end Ray Edwards, defensive end Brian Robison, safety Husain Abdullah, and offensive lineman Ryan Cook.

Rice and Edwards received first-round tenders; the rest were tendered at the second-round level.

Teams are applying the tenders because the rules of the uncapped year make players eligible for unrestricted free agency only after racking up six years of service. If the new labor deal (when there’s a new labor deal) reduces the threshold to the capped-year minimum of four, the RFA tenders presumably will evaporate.

So why are teams treating players who are destined to be unrestricted as if they’re restricted? It’s all part of the leverage game; if/when the union begins to make concessions on issues like the revenue formula or the length of the season or the rookie wage scale, the league can agree to move the trigger for unrestricted free agency from six to four years, and the players will be able to claim that they scored a victory at the bargaining table.

Definitely a smart move to do that. I think there's a much better chance that the league just extends the current CBA for a year than to get a new one done any time soon. Better to do this than possibly lose them for no reason.

Yep, good move on doing it with him and Edwards. I'd much rather have Rice back over Edwards, but if either left and the rules stayed the same a first round pick would help the healing.
