The magic number

Vikings wide receiver Sidney Rice writes in his latest blog entry that he is still in discussions with Sage Rosenfels about the quarterback’s desire to obtain the No. 18 from him.

“I’m not quite sure what’s going to happen yet,” Rice writes. “We’re supposed to go out to dinner and talk about it but that hasn’t happened yet. Every time I see him though he asks me how I like the number, so I know he wants it pretty bad.”

Safe to say, Rosenfels will be paying for the upcoming¬†dinner whenever it happens and also might be sending a bit of cash Rice’s way for the rights to that No. 18 — that is if Rice will give it up.

Rosenfels, asked about this topic last week, said: “We’re working on it, we’re working on it. I think 18 is an awful number for a receiver [he was laughing]. I think it’s a great number for a quarterback. I’m working with Sidney and hopefully we get something worked out.”
