    It's a product of the Madden era.

    Linval Joseph is a 1 technique? Would pair nicely with Donald.

    I blame fantasy football instead of Madden.

    ^ This.

    Austin is likely gone come June 1st, we're going to need another outside WR. It's not that I'm infatuated with familiar names, it's the fact that we could probably get him cheap.

    No one is going to offer Rice a big contract after proving he's not a #1 in Seattle. With his injury history, it's likely he'll only get 1 year offers. Like someone said earlier, Rice is a good #2 or #3 and that's exactly what we need if Austin leaves. Sign him to a 1 or 2 year contract and it gives us another 2 drafts to get another WR instead of spending a draft pick this year in a draft deep with good defensive players (which is a much bigger need).

    Beides, Linehan would like to have another big WR. Rice is nothing like Megatron, but he would provide similar play in the red zone and can be a good possession WR.
