Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice is retiring, per league source.
Between knee problems and concussion concerns it's time to say goodbye to Sidney. He's calling it a career. His best season came in 2009 when he was with the Vikings and he and Brett Favre connected for 83 receptions, 1,312 yards, and eight touchdowns. Since then, he's been a mess with injuries and has missed almost as many games as he started. Be well, Sidney. Vaya con dios, amigo.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Robert Quinn is making progress from his back issue.
After missing Sunday's game, Quinn seems to be making steps toward's returning. Quinn is one of the game's elite pass rushers but has been slowed down by injuries all season long. Quinn is two years removed from a 19 sack season and the Rams are hoping he returns to that when he gets back on the field. Analysis: James Grande
Braves signed P Jim Johnson to a one-year deal.
After saving 50-plus games two consecutive years in Baltimore, Johnson has been a shell of that the past two seasons. He only has 12 saves combined over the past two seasons. He posted a 7.09 ERA in 2014 and a 4.46 ERA in 2015. The Braves are giving him one year to figure himself out or he'll likely have a hard time finding work. He can only hope his sinker starts sinking like it did in Baltimore. Analysis: James Grande
