<p> Seattle Seahawks receiver <a href="http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/07/23/seahawks-receiver-sidney-rice-is-retiring/">Sidney Rice has decided to retire from the NFL</a>, according to Pro Football Talk.</p> <p> Rice was re-signed this offseason after being released. The report cites multiple concussions as Rice's reason to retire from the game. A year ago, Rice sustained an ACL tear that prematurely ended his 2013 season and caused him to miss Seattle's Super Bowl run.</p> <p> Rice was drafted by Minnesota in 2007 and had a breakout season in 2009, when he caught 83 passes for 1,312 yards and eight touchdowns. However, since 2010, with both Minnesota and Seattle, Rice caught a total of 114 passes for 1,743 yards and 14 touchdowns.</p> <p> The Seahawks will miss his veteran leadership but have a couple of playmakers at the position in Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin to where they should be fine in 2014. However, depth is quite thin behind the top two receivers.</p> <p> Then again, who needs receiver depth when Marshawn Lynch is in the backfield.</p> <p> Follow me on Twitter: <a href="http://twitter.com/jasonhbutt">@JasonHButt</a></p>
