"Sidney Rice..........Oakland Raider?"

With the Minnesota Vikings deciding to Franchise Tag Chad Greenway it means that Sidney Rice will be able to test the Free Agency waters. Should those waters be The Bay Area waters?

Personally, I like the idea of going out and signing Sidney Rice, even though the last MN receiver to come to Oakland was a P.O.S.. Just because Randy Moss failed as a Raider doesn't mean Sidney Rice would too. Living in the Midwest as I do I've had plenty of chances to watch Sidney Rice play. His career is very clearly segregated into two parts, Pre-Favre and Favre-era. As bad as he played before Favre is as good as he has played since him. Sometimes players are very late developers and the player that pops into my head when I think of Rice is Roddy White. Roddy White started off so slow that Atlanta wanted him gone. Bring in Matty Ice and BOOM! Roddy White is one of the best receivers in the NFL. If Rice can continue to play at the high level that he has shown these past two years, then he might just be a steal. I believe his price will be relatively cheap because of his bone head move of not having hip surgery at the end of the 09 season and then figuring out in the 2010 offseason that he probably should have. That surgery kept him out of the first half of the season, and kept him out of the headlines for almost the whole season. However,. when he played, he played extremely well.

          I say bring him in. He doesn't seem to have attitude problems and if the Vikings let him hit free agency and do not give him a new deal he will have a very large chip on his shoulder. The guy can flat out run, and despite dropping passes every so often he can still win jump balls with the best of them. He reminds me a lot of Larry Fitzgerald as well as Roddy White. I would definitely not have a problem bringing him into Oakland, let me know what you guys think.
