49ers | Rice trying to retire with the team
Dennis Georgatos, of the Mercury News, reports WR Jerry Rice wants to return to the San Francisco 49ers for a retirement ceremony, but details of the tribute are still being worked out with 49ers owner John York. If Rice signs a ceremonial one-day contract this year, it will have to be soon. Teams can afford a ceremonial spot on the bigger training-camp rosters, but not on the 53-man squad of the regular season. The 49ers are working on a fitting tribute, team spokesman Aaron Salkin said. "No details have been finalized, but there's no doubt the team wants him to retire as a 49er," Salkin said. "Not only the team but the fans."
