  • Wide receiver Sidney Rice and defensive end Red Bryant have been released by the Seattle Seahawks, giving the Super Bowl champions additional salary cap space as free agency approaches.
    Seattle made the expected roster moves official Friday. Bryant had spent his entire career with the Seahawks, while Rice signed as a free agent before the 2011 season.
    Both were due hefty salaries in 2014 that didn't necessarily match the production they had shown on the field. Rice had struggled with injuries with the Seahawks and was lost for the 2013 season after Week 8 with a knee injury. Bryant was a unique piece as a 300-pound defensive end for the Seahawks, but his playing time diminished throughout the season.
    Seattle should save more than $12 million in salary cap space with the moves.
    Eagles
    Jeremy Maclin and the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed on a one-year contract, preventing the wide receiver from becoming a free agent next month.
    Maclin missed the entire 2013 season after tearing his right ACL in training camp.
    The former first-round pick led the team with 69 receptions for 857 yards and seven touchdowns in 2012. The NFC East champion Eagles had a busy week before signing Maclin on Friday. They gave new deals to wide receiver Riley Cooper and center Jason Kelce on Thursday and extended All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters' contract Wednesday.
