Pete Carroll Says Seahawks WR Sidney Rice Is 'Ready To Go'
Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider went on a spree this summer in an attempt to round out Seattle's collection of pass catchers. Bringing in Braylon Edwards, Kellen Winslow and (the now-dispatched) Terrell Owens was more than a publicity stunt.
The frenzy had everything to do with the status of the Seahawks' No. 1 receiver -- in theory -- Sidney Rice, who underwent grisly offseason surgery on both shoulders after ending last season on injured reserve.
"It really guided a lot of our thinking in the decisions that we made ... with the receiver position," Carroll told ESPN Seattle this week. "We weren't sure, you know? But he's proven to us that he's ready to go. ... He's applied himself so well and has done a great job in the weight room. He's never been pumped like this before. He's feeling really confident out there and we are all looking forward to it."
Rice is practicing again, and he caught his first pass in forever against the Kansas City Chiefs last week. Carroll has yet to announce if the wideout will play against the Oakland Raiders this week, and he hasn't named Rice a starter for the regular season.
