"Jerry Rice said he didn't want to play if he wasn't going to be at least the No. 3 receiver for the Denver Broncos. Informed that wasn't going to be the case, the NFL's all-time leading receiver opted to retire rather than ride the bench."
Hmmm. It's amazing what Rice has been able to do as a 40-something wide receiver, but I'm not sure if he's a No. 3 receiver on any team in the league.

The Vikings' quarterback seemed to regress in his second season. Did that tell us more about the player, or the Minnesota offensive scheme?
