With the exception of Rex Ryan's crew making a big-time, big-money play for Santonio Holmes, the high-profile wideout market's been a little quiet. Not anymore -- according to a report, Sidney Rice has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks and will be goin' out west on a five-year deal.
Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, who initially reported the news, did not provide immediate information on the financials of the deal.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reporte that Rice will receive $41 million over the course of the deal with $18.5 million guaranteed.

One very interesting point: Rice is probably going to have to pass a physical before that deal is consummated. That's no surprise for any free agent, but most of the players we're discussing aren't coming off a year where they struggled with a hip injury.
Another interesting point: as we mentioned when discussing the recent signing of Tarvaris Jackson, the Seahawks were very much in the market for Rice thanks to the presence of Jackson and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, formerly of the Vikings.
The reunion might not necessarily guarantee on-field offensive success for the Seahawks, but Seattle's ability to put up points looks improved over 2010. And if they can land a franchise quarterback in 2012, they might actually have a nice little thing going on up there.
