Shame on you St. Pete Times, just days after I congratulate you for your journalistic integrity you run a non-story about Simeon Rice. Agent mouth-piece and Times writer Stephen Holder runs some juicy quotes from Rice's agent, Tom Condon, which seem to indicate that Rice will remain a Buc. Except Holder fails to get a quote from Bruce Allen if the Bucs want to keep Rice at his current salary.
So maybe Rice won't be sticking around (get it? sticky rice?)
To recap, Bruce Allen announced in January that he would either renegotiate or cut the fifteen highest contracts on the Buc's roster starting at the top with Derrick Brooks. Brooks, always the team leader, said he would renegotiate if it would guarantee he could retire as a Buc. Next up was Rice, but now Rice's agent is saying Bruce Allen hasn't contacted him (yet) and we are supposed to infer that means Rice won't be let go at some point? Something stinks here and it ain't the moldy cheddar in the back of the fridge.
