you dont think i was comparing okolbi and wilson to rice too, do you? just add up the 3's contracts and it equals to about "mid-7 figures". its silly to think i would compare cedric wilson to rice. it simply showed rice could be afforded if tomlin had a secret desire to implement a 4-3

but like it has been stated hes not really needed and i agree that he probably wants a huge deal. he's not really suited to back up a. smith or b. keisel, but would be excellent for about 15 plays a game when we switched to a hybrid 4-3. assuming he can pass a physical, i dont think he would take 4-5 mil for just 15-20 plays a game.

i still think he will be given a call to test the waters though. thats what all smart teams do.

Unless my math is off, the man is 33. It's a bit excessive to be paid big if you ask me.

I think we make a call,but nothing happens.

I see Cincinatti going after him,especially with O'Dell out for another year and thier defense being so aweful.

Justin Smith.

I'm pretty sure they won't sign Simeon Rice...first of all, he can't replace Odell because he's not a linebacker. Second of all, they have a pretty good starting duo in Robert Geathers and Justin Smith. Signing Rice would be like having another DE on lease for a year, except older and injured.

I'm not sure Rice has much left in the tank. And there's a reason he failed his physical. He hasn't recovered from his injury yet.

Giants and Lions are interested. He's going to get paid.
