The former 49ers icon remained formidable during three seasons with the Oakland Raiders that included a Pro Bowl selection and five receptions for 77 yards in a Super Bowl XXXVII loss to Tampa Bay. As the Raiders crumbled and his role shrank, Rice requested a trade to Seattle during the 2004 season and added 25 catches, 362 yards and three more TD to his all-time marks. He then signed with Denver before the 2005 season, but hung up his helmet rather than accept fourth or fifth receiver status at the ripe old age of 42.
