Rice got his wish and was traded out of Oakland. Destination Seattle for a conditional seventh-round draft pick.

Seattle? Isn't that the last team that needs receivers. Their receiving core might very well be the best in the league. If Rice didn't like of game time in Oakland, I can't see Seattle giving him much more of a focus. This seems really short term until Robinson and Engram return from suspension and injury.

Koren Robinson couldn't catch flies if he had glue traps on his hands. Rice is a good possession receiver. I think he'll get a few balls.

Plus, I think they're thinking that when Robinson's un-suspended, he can move into more of a player/coach/"stop dropping passes, morons" position. So they gave up nothing and got some possible help. Good luck making him realize he's got nothing much left, though.

Well, the last two Seahawks games showed me that they don't have anyone who can hold on to a pass right now anyway, so maybe a season with Rice will help them a little bit...

Personally, I am just glad he didn't end up in Detroit. The man was great, but he really needs to hang it up...

And since actually catching the ball is a key component to receiving, I can't believe anyone could call Seattle's receivers the best by any stretch of the imagination right now.

Aside from the fact that I think he'll contribute, I'm glad the trade took some of the focus off the losing streak. Most of the Hawk Talk this week was about Rice and not making them and their fans feel bad about the streak. Hopefully, this will be a rejuvenation thing that will help them get on track agaisnt a very tough Cardinals team this afternoon.

edit: It didn't help. Congrats Cards fans.
