The trade will be finalized after Rice undergoes a physical and the league gives its approval. The Raiders did not immediately disclose what they received in return for Rice. Seattle coach Mike Holmgren was Rice's offensive coordinator from 1989-1991 with the San Francisco 49ers, and Holmgren was the Niners' quarterbacks coach starting in Rice's second season with the team in 1986. Seattle was a logical destination for Rice because he knows Holmgren's offense and the Seahawks might need a depth receiver. Rice is now 42 years old.
