    PFT: Hawks cooking up some Rice?

    HAWKS COOKING UP SOME RICE?

    As receiver Jerry Rice continues to look for a pathway out of the Bay Area after more than 19 seasons with the ***** and the Raiders, we're hearing that talks have been occurring between the Seahawks and the Raiders, possibly regarding a trade for the man who holds every significant career receiving record.

    Though we don't do what specifically was discussed, we do know that there have been communications, and we can think of no reason why the Raiders and the Seahawks would be talking about anything other than a trade for Rice, especially since the trade deadline is only five days away.

    Reportedly, Rice was scheduled to meet with Raiders owner Al Davis on Wednesday night (daylight, after all, kills vampires) regarding the future Hall of Famer's discontent with his role in the Oakland offense. On Sunday, Rice was held without a reception for the second time this season.

    When Rice left the ***** as a free agent, the Seahawks was one of the teams in the mix for his services, since coach Mike Holmgren is well acquainted with Rice given their days together in San Fran, when Holmgren was the offensive coordinator. With a receiving corps in Seattle that's having trouble holding onto the football, perhaps Holmgren thinks a guy like Rice will help Koren Robinson finally mature into the player that he can be.

    But Holmgren also will be required to get Rice on the field, and the ball in his hands. If anyone can find a way to make that happen, it's Holmgren, who arguably knows Rice better than any other coach presently working in the NFL.

    The problem I have with the Raiders trying to deal Rice is that I'm not sure if they have enough cap room to allow for the hit. According to KFFL, Rice signed a six-year deal in the spring of 2003 that paid him a $1.2 million signing bonus. The last cap update I saw had the Raiders at less than $1 million in cap space, so I'm curious if they'd have enough room to get this done.
