Free agent wide-receiver Sidney Rice is on the radar of several NFL teams as the league's Rice race starts to heat up.

Rice spent four years with Minnesota Vikings, who drafted him in 2007. From there he spent three seasons at the Seattle Seahawks.

He was released by the Seahawks in February for salary cap reasons after an injury ravaged few years.

Now allegedly fit and raring to go for the 2014, Rice has become an attractive proposition for NFL teams including the New York Jets, New Orleans Saints and surprise package former team the Seahawks.

Rice has all the skill in the world and has to potential to be a top five league receiver, but he has struggled with injuries in the past.

For the Jets he would become another big play threat receiver that would complement former Broncos wide-out Eric Decker, who joined the Jets last week.

The Saints need replacements for Lance Moore and Robert Meachem, and Rice would give them a much-needed red-zone threat.

Seattle are in line for his services as well even though they released him last month. That decision was for pure cap reasons.

However, after the departure of Golden Tate to Detroit, Rice could fill a void on a drastically reduced contract.
