  • Jerry Rice Mulls Retirement

    DENVER - Jerry Rice was in San Francisco on Sunday, contemplating retirement.

    Rice's agent, Jim Steiner, said the NFL's all-time leading receiver probably would make a decision before the
    Denver Broncos return to practice Monday.

    Rice signed with Denver this summer in hopes of finishing his career as a backup with the Broncos. He wanted to be the team's No. 3 receiver.

    "That was a must for him," Steiner told The Associated Press on Sunday.

    Steiner said the team has made it clear that Rice probably would be only the fourth or fifth receiver if he decides to come back.

    Hampered by a nagging foot injury, Rice caught only four passes for 24 yards in the preseason and had trouble getting open.

    Denver kept six receivers on its final roster, including Rice, Darius Watts, Charlie Adams and Todd Devoe.

    After Denver's final preseason game Friday, Rice told the Denver Post: "Those guys deserve to be on the field. They worked real hard. The thing is, I'm going to hold my head high if it doesn't work out."
