this could very well be a Jordan type thing, where they don't really learn from him but just take a seat ala fan and watch him play. however, im hoping that its not. I would love to see him in a niner uni and perhaps while teaching our young WR's some good skills, he can also influence them to have a great work ethic. I don't know the work ethic they have now, but I know Rice's preperations and practicing was outstanding. First to arrive and last to leave.
"I have been influenced by Jerry Rice's work ethic," Porter said. "The way he prepares every day. The way he takes care of the little things."
