DENVER (AP) -- Jerry Rice agreed to a one-year deal with Denver on Wednesday and will attempt to finish his career as a backup for the Broncos.
The NFL's all-time leader in catches, yards and touchdowns will be reunited with coach Mike Shanahan, who was his offensive coordinator in San Francisco from 1992-94.
``Mike is a coach who will manage him better than anyone else in the league. Mike views him better than anyone else would. It all just works,'' said Rice's agent, Jim Steiner.
Details weren't disclosed by the team, but Steiner said the contract was for one year -- and that Rice has no plans to play beyond the 2005-06 season.
