The Seattle Seahawks are starting their offseason with some minor news tidbits, both of which should be cleared up in a few weeks or months. But it'll be an interesting situation regarding both these players.
Wide receiver Sidney Rice will have surgery to deal with a lingering shoulder issue that's been troubling him since the start of the season. Rice has struggled with that shoulder, and it kept him from playing the last month of the season. Rice is likely to be out the next three or four months, which could be something to watch at the beginning of training camp if he isn't fully healed. The Seahawks are likely satisfied with Rice, but they might consider exploring additional options if the wide receiver isn't at full strength when camp begins.
Richard Sherman will also have his knee scoped, which should only limit him for a brief period of time.
