The Seattle Seahawks will release wide receiver Sidney Rice, according to ESPN insider Adam Shefter.
The Super Bowl champions are likely to let Rice go in order to free salary space as they look to tie down some of their big names in the near future.
The WR, who played in eight games for the Seahawks last season, signed a five-year contract in 2011 worth $43 million but has been surpassed by the likes of Doug Baldwin and Golden Tate.
And with Percy Harvin surely likely to play more than just two games next season, Rice has been deemed surplus to requirements it seems.
Releasing Rice would give the reigning Champions a vital $7 million in cap space, and with the franchise looking to figure out ways to keep Tate, Bennett and others it is a sensible move.
Rice finished last season with 231 yards and 15 receptions and joined the Seahawks from the Vikings in 2011.
