RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Sidney Rice is headed west to join former Minnesota teammate Tarvaris Jackson with the Seattle Seahawks.

A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press on Wednesday that Rice has agreed to terms with the Seahawks. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because free agent signings can’t be announced until Friday.

Foxsports.com first reported Rice’s five-year deal with the Seahawks.

Rice is coming off an injury-plagued 2010 season where he missed the first 10 games, played in just six games and caught only 17 passes. A year earlier, Rice was among the top receivers in the NFL after catching 83 passes for 1,312 yards and eight touchdowns.

The 6-foot-4 Rice fits head coach Pete Carroll’s prototype of tall receivers.
