Jeremy Fowler of the Pioneer Press talks with Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice about his departure from Minnesota from free agency. Rice says the Vikings never showed as much interest as Seattle. Rice: “If you hear from them throughout the rest of the season telling you they are going to be in touch, are going to negotiate and it never happens, you’ve got to wonder – do they really want me there or not? I just didn’t feel it….It came down to Seattle showing me they wanted me to be a part of the program.”
