Could Sidney Rice fit with the 49ers?

February, 21, 2014
I was asked a lot on Friday if I think the San Francisco 49ers could show interest in Sidney Rice. The receiver was cut by the Seattle Seahawks earlier in the day.

I understand why the question would be asked. The 49ers and Seahawks love to sign former players from the other team and San Francisco needs help at receiver.

Yet, I don't think Rice would be a high-priority for the 49ers unless he came very cheaply.

Rice is talented, but he can't seem to stay healthy. The 49ers will likely draft a receiver in the early rounds, so there wouldn't be much for him.

But, again, taking a cheap flier on him to see if he can regain his form would be worth considering.
