    Re: Bucs' pass rusher Rice may be nice fit for Vikings

    How can you say he'll be cheaper? The article says his contract pays him 10 mil this upcoming year. That's some superbowl winning qb money, not end of the road d-end money.
    Wait, if there's cat food in this bag............................

    I don't think he is end of the road or one dimensional.
    He had one bad season out of 11 and suddenly people are saying he is done.

    If he is out in a trade his contract will almost certainly be reworked as part of the trade agreement.
    If he is cut as a salary cap casualty (less likely scenario) then his contract is void anyway.

    No I don't think he's done, although my comment sure made it sound that way, but there is no way in hell we should sign him for 10mil. Although he isn't done for, I highly doubt he is as productive as he was in his earlier seasons. If we can rework his contract, go for it. I'd still rather have Freeny though.

    I think it would be good pick up. He's no spring chicken, but would help alot. Also, the chances of any team getting Freeney is bleak. What little defense the Colts have, they are not going to part with Dwight.

    Dude Cajun, did you have Edwards' babies or something? You got more man love for Edwards than Madden has for Farve.

    Anyways - Rice/Freeney whoever it is, a quality veteran FA could be really useful. We have young and talented DE's already and some extra knowledge from a veteran could never hurt their games.

    No denial from Cajun.

    Is Cajun Donnie Edwards love slave (inquiring minds want to know)?
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I don't think we will get Rice.


    I have a feeling he would want to stay in Tampa Bay.

    He will obviously be cheaper than Freeney. Especially if Freeney keeps up his play throughout the playoffs.

    Rice is a 33 year old defensive end who played half a season last year, there's not a chance his current contract will be matched, I don't see him getting 50% of that.

    Freeney is easy to beat now.
    You just run at him.
    He is already 10 yards behind everybody else going for the QB.
    Draws, misdirections, and counters is how you beat freeney.


    He is a lot better than what we have though.

    The love in that relationship only goes one way.

    He's been looking pretty good in the playoffs.
