Default Simeon Rice to Broncos

Broncos, Rice Agree on One-Year Deal

Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Nobody's more excited about Denver's signing of free agent sacks specialist Simeon Rice than Broncos safety John Lynch.

The two won a Super Bowl together in Tampa Bay in 2002, and both believe this reunion in the Rockies could lead to a second ring.

"He's a teammate who I loved playing with and one of the great pass-rushers of all-time. So, we'd be - anyone would be - fortunate to get him," Lynch said Monday while the sides were signing the one-year deal at Broncos headquarters.

Rice, whose 121 career sacks rank second to Michael Strahan among active players, was released by Tampa Bay this summer after the Buccaneers signed first-round draft pick Gaines Adams.

Rice had failed a physical earlier in the day after reporting to camp, but has since passed his medical tests. The 33-year-old started the first eight games last year before being sidelined by a shoulder injury.

Lynch said Rice told him he was fine: "He told me his shoulder's feeling good and he feels like he's ready to play."

Coach Mike Shanahan courted Rice to bring experience and pressure to a young defensive line.

"He's a big-time pass rusher, he's been in the league for a while, he's got a lot of talent," Shanahan said.

The Bronco's have been pretty active this offseason - most of their moves have been pretty good, I think.

I certainly wont enjoy watching Graham in a Denver jersey.

Rice certainly has been a great pass rusher, but I don't think many teams were beating a path to his door to sign him.

Having said that, its only a 1 year deal and is heavily incentive based - everyones a winner if he can reproduce somewhere close to his top form.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Rice and Jarvin moss on the line, that sounds deadly to QB's, I though the Broncos would be an easy opponent this year despite last year's game, but if our line can protect Ben from this two we're in for a lot of trouble

Denver is going to be tough this year aslong as Cutler doesn't have a sophmor slump. If he improves I think the have a slim shot at putting pressure on the Chargers for the division.
