Agent: Sidney Rice to be free agent
Vikings wide receiver Sidney Rice will be a free agent.
Drew Rosenhaus, Rice's agent, told ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter on Sunday that his client will not re-sign with Minnesota before first testing free agency.
After a breakout 2009 season, Rice had hip surgery in August and missed the Vikings' first nine games.
The 6-foot-4, 202-pound wideout finished the year with 17 receptions for 280 yards and two touchdowns.
