RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Sidney Rice and Golden Tate have become the go-to targets for Seattle Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson.
Rice is having a career resurgence for the Seahawks after being healthy for the first time in three years. A hip injury derailed his final season in Minnesota and Rice signed with Seattle following the lockout.
Rice couldn't escape the injury bug last year, catching only 32 passes for 484 yards and two touchdowns in his first year with the Seahawks.
Tate is finally having the breakthrough he's been waiting for after two mostly unimpressive seasons in Seattle. Entering this season, Tate had never had more than 61 yards receiving in his two years a pro. Through 12 games, Tate has already matched or exceeded his career-highs in catches (35), yards (486) and touchdowns (7).
