Ruthless Super Bowl champions ready to cut one receiver

Seattle Seahawks are ready to part ways with Sidney Rice, as general manager John Schneider looks to create some salary-cap space in order to retain the services of a number of key free agents, reports

The 27-year-old wide receiver - who stands to earn $9.7million in 2014 - would create $7.3million in cap savings, freeing up some room on Pete Carroll's roster for the likes of fellow wide-out Golden Tate, and running back Michael Bennett.

Bennett was one of the best free-agent values in 2013, with the pass rusher delivering 8.5 sacks, and making just $4.8million on his one-year contract at CenturyLink Field.

Tate, meanwhile, is one of the best punt returners in the game - showing a knack for the big play - and will act as a solid No.2 receiver with Percy Harvin in the Seahawks' passing attack.

With serious doubts over the long-term fitness of Rice, it's likely that the Super Bowl champions will cut a player that featured in just five games in 2013.

Zach Miller could also be in line for an exit, following the tight end's disappointing performances in his three seasons with the Seahawks, since coming over from Oakland in 2011.
