2014 Outlook: Quality BackupLast updated on Jul-14-2014 by Brad Kruse
Since he came onto the scene as an undrafted free agent, Baldwin has been an integral part of the offense. He has dependable hands and the trust of Russell Wilson. Baldwin has averaged 14.9 yards per catch and caught over 60-percent of the passes thrown his way. He's a nice point per catch player at times, but not consistent enough to be a full-time starter for your team. He'll be involved in Seattle's offense, although Harvin could dominate the targets. Baldwin will have a solid week when he can find the end zone, but that doesn't happen often enough to depend on him as anything more than a bench player.
Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice has decided to retire, a source has told Pro Football Talk. The source adds that Rice's history of concussion is the foremost reason why he will call it a career at 27.
Rice was a fantasy star with Brett Favre and the Vikings in 2009. He caught 83 passes for 1,312 and eight touchdowns. But he missed 25 games over the following four seasons, and he suffered a concussion in 2010 and 2011. Rice also missed significant time after hip surgery in 2010 and tore an ACL last year.
Outside of 2009, Rice's best season was 2012: 50 catches for 748 yards and seven scores.
Rice was hardly a lock to make the Seahawks' roster, and this sounds like a smart decision given his lengthy medical chart. The team will move forward with Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin, and Jermaine Kearse as its top three wideouts.
