Rice believes he could be leaving Raiders soon
an Associated Press report 10/13/04
ALAMEDA, Calif. - Jerry Rice believes he could be traded by the Oakland Raiders before the Oct. 19 deadline.

Rice, who turns 42 Wednesday, told Sacramento radio station KHTK on Tuesday that his days with Oakland may be numbered, and that he wants to play for a team that will better utilize his talents.

Speculation surfaced last week about a possible swap with the Detroit Lions.

"When rumors get started like that, something is going on," Rice said. "I don't know how much longer I'll be wearing the silver and black. The thing is, I know wherever I go, that that team will get something special because I'll give them 100 percent and I'll make plays on the football field to help that team win."

Michael Lombardi, the Raiders' senior personnel executive, said Tuesday that the Detroit story "was not remotely accurate."

A call to Rice's agent, Jim Steiner, was not immediately returned Tuesday afternoon.

Rice's role with the Raiders has been greatly diminished this season. Through five games, the NFL's career leader in catches and touchdowns has five receptions for 67 yards and no touchdowns -- his receptions are tied for eighth on the team.

Rice has shown his frustration several times already, and admitted last week that the limited role is affecting him.

His NFL record streak of 274 straight games with a catch ended in the second game of the season, a 13-10 victory over the Buffalo Bills.

"I can't go out this way," Rice said Tuesday. "If some things had been explained to me before the season started, then maybe the situation would be different now. I want to come back, I want to play next year, and I want to go out the right way. I don't know if I'll be in a Raiders uniform, but I'll be somewhere on the field doing my thing. ...From what I was told, I'd be a significant part and I'd have opportunities and I'd make plays. This is a business, man, and you never know.

Rice is in his 20th NFL season, fourth with the Raiders.

"The situation right now, it doesn't look good, and you know something is in the works," he said. "I hope both parties can move on and be happy about the situation. I just want to play football, I want to enjoy myself and contribute."

It won't happen unless we want to claim that we had both Montana and Rice, past their primes, at some point.

It's good to be livin' in the 90's........what's that you say? It's freaking 2004? Well, uh, I'd say no to Jerry Rice at this point. I thought maybe for a second we were back in 1995.

Please.........

Shoot theres someone to trade LJ for. Maybe we can get Montana to come out of retirement? Or maybe get Bono in here to play MLB and have LJ cook some calaformia meals for him to keep him happy. At least we would enjoy seeing him get pancaked every block....ummmmmm I like this idea...Wonder what Linn Elliot is doing?

It's too bad Rice has decided to go "Willie Mays" instead of just retiring 2 years ago, when everyone but himself could tell he was finished.

For defense, lets give Neil Smith, Dale Carter, Albert Lewis, Brian Washington, James Hasty, and Dan Williams a call.

Rice is great if you're hungry and want two-thousand of something.

It'll be interesting to see if they even get a nibble for Rice. Who in the Hell wants him? He's a living legend as a football player, but he's average at best now.

Hell no!!! Jerry Rice is past his prime. He would be no better than our current receivers.

No he didn't.
Marcus signed up with the Chiefs as a free agent.

You could research back to the 60s, and I'd bet you couldn't find one trade involving the Chiefs and Raiders.

BTW, for the record I want no part of Rice.
Stick a fork in him, he's done.

Rice might need crutches to get around by now but he ALWAYS catches the ball. If nothing else I'd like to have him on roster to show our WR's how that's done...

McFatass signed as a free agent.

I don't recall the details but there was some issue about this, leading Tagliabue to give the Raiders a draft pick, but there was no trade.

If the Raideres get ANYTHING for this total has-been in a trade, I'm personally coming to KC to slap Carl Peterson around good for never being able to get anything for any of our players.

We already have enough 30+ receivers without going for a 40+ receiver.

Only way I'd trade for Rice is if we trade our cheerleaders for the Raiderette squad. They can throw Rice in as an afterthought.

Jerry Rice is the one who started this rumor and is the only one spreading it. Sad, sad, sad. No one is interested in him at this point in his career. The earlier Willie Mays comparison is unfortunately totally right on.

Congratulations on a great career, Jerry.
