Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Thursday, July 24 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Teammates React To Sidney Rice's Retirement

On Wednesday, 27-year-old wide receiver Sidney Rice announced his retirement from the NFL after three seasons with the Seahawks. Injuries prompted Rice to start thinking about life after football.

“I was just thinking about things I’ve been through in the last few years,” Rice told's Clare Farnsworth. “I’ve hit the ground a number of times. I have quite a few injuries. It’s something I’ve always battled through and came back from.

“But I just figure at this point I have the rest of my life ahead of me and I want to be able to function and do things later down the road.”

After hearing the news, several teammates took to social media to thank the big-play wideout for everything he's offered.
