Jets | Rice and More

The Bergen Record's Randy Lange reports agent Jim Steiner confirmed one of the teams he has talked to about trading for his client, WR Jerry Rice, is the New York Jets. The Jets are not alone in their interest. Detroit, Carolina, Oakland, Seattle, and Cleveland are other teams that have reportedly expressed some interest in the veteran WR. Player trades can't be made until March 2, but Steiner said Rice's situation may have to wait until June given the 49ers cap situation. Steiner said the Jets haven't discussed re-signing DE Rick Lyle, soon to be an unrestricted free agent with him. Steiner also said PK John Hall, still under contract, "could be back" with the Jets this off-season. Their other PK, Brett Conway, is not under contract.
