Pete Carrol Interviews Sidney Rice & Tarvaris Jackson VIDEO

August 15, 2011 by Nick in CONTROVERSY

Wow.  Am I the only one that gets the hint from both Jackson and Rice that they couldn’t be happier to leave Minnesota?  I understand Jacksons standpoint as he was never really given a fair shot and he is making a ton more money then he did anywhere else.  But why Rice? Speculation has it that he was never a fan of living in Minnesota and was eager to cash in on the contract.   As much as it pains me to see both guys leave the Vikes it was for the best.  I couldn’t imagine paying these two guys the monster contracts they got from Seattle.  After watching Jackson play in the first pre-season game it doesn’t look like he’s changed.  Rice sat out of the game.

It will be exciting next weekend when the Vikings visit Seattle.  You can probably guarantee a lot of effort from both Rice and Jackson in that game.

    “As much as it pains me to see both guys leave…”

    Is that a joke?
