RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice tweeted an apparent goodbye after a report about his pending release.

Rice tweeted on Friday afternoon saying the No. 12 would ''remain on the left side of my chest no matter what! Grateful for the opportunity to share so many special moments w yall.''

The tweet seemed to be in response to an ESPN report that Seattle intended to release Rice. The team said no roster move has been made and the NFL transactions report showed no roster move Friday.

Releasing Rice would not be surprising. He is scheduled to make $8.5 million in 2014 and Seattle could use the cap savings in its attempts to re-sign Michael Bennett and extend Earl Thomas.

Rice has been with Seattle since 2011. He has caught 97 passes and had 12 touchdowns in his three seasons with the Seahawks.
