Redskins Have Serious Interest in Sidney Rice

With the lockout over and rumors really starting to heat up, nearly all the speculation around Redskins Park today has circulated around the wide receiver position. Many thought the Redskins would target a veteran wide receiver one way or another, but it is becoming increasingly clear that WR will most likely be priority number one for the Skins once deals can be made.

Adding fuel to the fire NFL Draft Monster (@NFLDraftMonster) has confirmation with numerous sources that the Redskins have legitimate interest in Vikings receiver Sidney Rice. Rice, who will turn 25 before the start of the season, has been plagued by injuries throughout his career and only started 5 games last year. His best year came in 2009 when he went for over 1,300 yards and 8 TDs, helping the Vikings to the NFC Championship game.

This is the second instance of the Redskins interest peaking at the WR position, earlier today the club was linked to Santonio Holmes being their top target.
