Default Simeon Rice Released

Just saw it on Espn. No link yet
Quite shocking, he and Gaines Adams would have been great.

there are lots of high dollar good players that are gonna start to get dropped. warren sapp is another who may be on the chopping block.

i wonder if tomlin will give him a call? although not really needed he could be affordable and make someone kirchke and okolbi (maybe wilson) expendable.

nfl network reported rice failed his physical and will free up 7.2 mil off the cap.

There is no way in Hell that the Steelers are signing Rice. He's like 2nd or 3rd on the career sack list among active players. Some team is going to WAY overpay him, and there's no way the Steelers are going to entertain that kind of deal, and certainly not to replace a cheap role player like Kirschke (who is about the same age and has 8 career sacks).

the steelers interviewed aaron brooks of all people. im sure a call to rice will be placed. it would be up to him to decide to take a huge paycut and play in a limited role. im sure a team like detroit or washington could make a much larger push for him.

Welp, since Rice got a ring in TB, I doubt a more limited role at a substantially reduced salary on a team that has a legit shot at a SB within the obviously limited amount of time he has left will be appealing. Another over-the-hill DE with a recognizable name that Snyder will grossly overpay for, I'm sure (much like he did with Bruce Smith).

Would be interesting to see him come over to us... help out when we want to go to four DL. Also help spell some lineman...

but we are somewhat deep in that area.

We are deep in the area of the defensive line. However, there might be a soft spot, since he is from the Bucs. Who knows? I don't think there is a need....

Brooks can be signed for $350k guaranteed money at this point. He's been exposed as damaged goods. Rice still has some juice, and he'll be looking for mid-7 figures, and someone will probably pay it. It's silly to compare Travis and Simeon.

I think someone will be able to pick him up at a fairly decent price. Most likely a 1-2 year deal.

Rice only had 2 sacks last year. He had a max of 14 tackles. With Smith at 4 and a half last year, and 44 tackles, i'll rest easy with knowing our DL handles their own
