This is very surprising. Could his injury be degenerative??

Sucks to hear. Was my favorite Gamecock while he was playing for us, and rooted for him in the League. Would love to have him come on as a WR Coach.

Sid seems like an enlightened dude. If concussions are mounting on him and he has saved/invested properly, there is no reason to keep playing if his health is at risk.

I don't blame him. At 28, he has money and has benefits for life-playing the league minimum five years. Being thin framed, his body was always taking a serious beating too.

Sucks. But his injures did pile up. I couldn't believe it's been 7 years since he played at USC

That's too bad. Seemed to be injured a good bit in the NFL.

Wish him all the best.

Default Re: Sidney Rice Retiring From NFL

I don't blame him given all his injuries. Seems like he's spent the last 7 years recovering from injury. That's a crappy, albeit well paying, job. Hopefully he doesn't have too many long term issues. Good for him not getting too caught up in the money to let go.

Alshon has the body size to play in the NFL.

He really was left no option he wasn't going to make the roster anyway. He needs to take Brett Favre out to dinner at some point in the near future.

Isn't Brett speaking soon in Cola? Maybe the two can hook up then!

Alshon is a different breed. He will be the best WR when he retires from the NFL.

Yeah, I am not sure how much of his 41 million dollar contract in 2011 was guaranteed, but I imagine he should be at least in the 30 million earned area by now. He seems very smart, and he's 28. Nice life ahead of him I hope.

He had bad luck with injuries but at least he got to catch from Brett Farve.
