    Patriots | Rice says Branch should end his holdout
    Sun, 30 Jul 2006 14:08:21 -0700

    Nancy Gay, of the San Francisco Chronicle, reports former NFL WR Jerry Rice, who recently debuted as a co-host on Sirius satellite radio's "Afternoon Blitz" show, thinks New England Patriots WR Deion Branch should end his holdout and report to the team's training camp. "Why are you going to hold out,'' Rice asked. "You are still under contract. It makes no sense. I did that once and I felt stupid. I really felt stupid because you are sitting on the outside looking in.''
    nice comment Jerry ... I hope he listens to you instead of his agent.

    He said that a couple weeks ago during minicamp I believe. I'm surprised they're only reporting it now, I thought it was old news.

    What's to lose? They only negotiate the fines away when he signs a new deal which Deion knows the Pats want to do.

    Old news and something that is VERY easy for Jerry Rice to say now.

    Let's just hope he continues to sit at home a whine. Missing camp should never be an option IMO.

    Are you sure he wasn't saying it to another WR? I remember hearing him say something like that but it was before the while Branch thing went down.

  9. If Jerry Rice was talking like that about me, I sure as hell would get my ass into training camp so I wouldn't disrespect the greatest reciever of all time. What ever Jerry says, I would do. The man is defines "tightness"!
