'One Season' has surgery..
@TomPelissero (1500 ESPN)
Not a Vikings note, but i was told Sidney Rice had surgery on BOTH his shoulders after the season, not just the one with the torn labrum.
Not a massive fan of how the FO has worked here but I do give them credit for not paying him what he thought he was worth and letting him walk away.

How'd he hurt himself ? overreaching for one of T-Jacks 'nowhere near the money' jump balls or did he try to pick up his salary in one lift ?Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

He dislocated one shoulder while trying to pick out the hang nail on his pinky toe, then the other whilst dialing home
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent
As a matter of fact, I do know
His shoulders couldn't bear the weight of being a franchise WR.
I wonder if Seattle will ever get sick or overpaying for our second tier WR's and out bidding us for other teams second tier WR's? We got Hutch and they got screwed at every single attempt to extract revenge they have attempted.
To top it off they also got bevell. You couldn't even write it up better than that.

Thing is though, even though he only played in 9 games & was thrown to by Jackson, who most here would call the worst QB in the league, he still had more receiving yards than either Aromashodu or Jenkins had all year, scored more TD's than those two WR combined & had more yards per catch than them or Harvin.
We certainly didn't replace him with an upgrade at WR.
"If at first you don't succeed, parachuting is not for you"
True, but we also didn't spend 40 million or whatever on those players. You would expect a tandem that has been together since 2007 with the same OC and who just signed big FA contracts to be more productive than rookie QB's and low budget WR's who are together for the first season.
