Just saw it on ESPN, I can't find a link yet. It's a bit shocking.

Apparently they did it to free up some cap room.

According to Adam Schefter, he failed a physical so they cut him loose.

I thouhgt him and Gaines would be a scary combo upfront.

If he failed his physical, I wonder how long it will take to get him somewhere else. Wonder where he will end up.

Buccaneers | Rice let go after he refused to take pay cut
Thu, 26 Jul 2007 16:58:49 -0700

Updating previous reports, Jay Glazer (http://www.kffl.com/link/14), of FOXSports.com (http://www.kffl.com/link/189), reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (http://www.kffl.com/team/35/nfl) have left the door open to a return of DE Simeon Rice (http://www.kffl.com/player/1796/nfl), who was just released. However, that does not seem likely to happen. Contrary to previous reports, Rice met with the team and they asked him to take a pay cut. After he refused, the team cut ties with him.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2950617 I know he's old but if he was willing to come for cheap, would it be worth it? Its enticing but because we have so many young possible up and comers I say no. If we were a superbowl contender and he was healthy i would have loved to see him line up opposite of JT on passing downs. any thoughts?

I always wanted to see them two on the same line but Rice has slowed down and that injury doesnt help him niether does his salary.

no! no! no! I want to see what the young players can do. I want to see another young player behind Matt Roth ex: Rodrique Wright

Another possible rehab project is available.... sign Ginn and see what we have left to lure Simeon!!!! WOW...Talk about scaring opposing QBs:evil:

Simeon Rice would seem to be an excellent fit for the Broncos whos' sole weakness on defense is their pass rush. They did get some pass rushers in the draft but they're rookies and Simeon is a proven elite pass rusher.

I'll pass, I'm kinda tire of people rehabbing on our money. I'd rather spend it on the OL when rosters are cut down, you never know who will be available.

Why would you want to bring in another rehab project. Especially one that has already failed a physical.

Now, if you want to bring him after he finishes his rehab and he is willing to 1) play at or near the veteran minimum, with incentives and 2) accept a reduced role as a pass rush specialist. Then it might be beneficial to bring him in.

If we wait a few weeks, I hear that Michael Vick might be available...he could help us out too...

Why is it that every single time a player is released for whatever reason a post pops up saying we should sign him...No thanks

He just doesn't fit this defense. I agree, the Broncos should try for him.
