Jerry Rice to sign with the 49ers

Postby stomperrob » Tue Jul 18, 2006 6:07 pm

Nah, he's not gonna play - just announced he's gonna sign a 1 day contract so he can retire as a 49er, probably for the Thursday night game against the Seahawks. Only fitting he goes out as a 49er.
;-D ;-D ;-D

nah. Doesn't bother me any. Dude played most of his career, and had all of his memorable games with, the niners. He's showing love for where he came from, and not hurting anybody in the process. A lot of guys could have been bitter about their team not keeping them, but he's got enough class to separate business from the game, the the city, and the fans who supported.

I say good for him. ;-D

I'll always remember Jerry as a 49er, only fit he retires under them. Still sad to see one of the games all-time greatest go.

Good for Jerry. Maybe the best football player of all time in my opinion. The mark he left on the record books is insane.

He should sign with the 49ers for more than one day. Alex Smith is gonna need all the help he can get.

"Jerry Rice signs one game deal associated press reports -

Jerry Rice retired NFL Wide Receiver comes out of retirement for 1 game in the 2006 football season. Arizona at San Francisco in Week 16 the final game of the regular season at San Francisco will feature limited playing time by 49er great Jerry Rice according to 49ers head coach Mike Nolan;

"We decided to bypass contract restrictions for this special occasion. We wanted to give the fans a treat and see the great Jerry Rice on our turf one more time... Having Jerry play for us this late in the season will give him adequate time to work out with the team a bit before seeing the field again. He's going to be taking a relaxed schedule during the regular season, attending games with the team and having his leadership presence in the locker room."

Fun to think about eh? Heheh

They let him go, dude. He didn't just storm out angry. He left with class, and still had a couple of productive seasons across the bay. So in order to stay in the city he loves, he has to take a giant paycut because the ownership sucked and wanted to get rid of him so crybaby TO didn't have to share the spotlight? Who is he hurting? I'm not a niners fan, but I respect what he did for the game, and I think the vast majority of niners fans think it's cool. (and that's who he's doing it for). ;-D
