2014 NFL free agency: Jets, Saints interested in WR Sidney Rice
The wide receiver market in free agency has been slow to develop, with a number of quality players at the position still available, including Sidney Rice. However, Rice's market appears to be picking up, and at least two teams are reportedly showing interest.
#Jets are still looking to add a WR, and source says they are interested in Sidney Rice. #Saints are too, & #Seahawks would welcome a return

The Jets signed Eric Decker last week, but they still could improve their receiving corp by adding a big-bodied receiver. The Saints would be looking to add depth behind Marques Colston and Kenny Stills.
Any contract with Rice comes with the obvious risk of injury, given his history. Rice has played in 16 games just twice in his seven-year career and missed the second half of the 2013 season after tearing his ACL in October.BURKE: Where does Rice rank among remaining offensive free agents?
