Ex-NFL star Simeon Rice signs with new United Football League
NEW YORK — Simeon Rice is making a comeback with the new United Football League.
The New York Sentinels announced Thursday that they had signed the 35-year-old defensive end. Rice last played in the NFL in 2007, when he was released by both the Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts.
He had 122 sacks in 12 seasons, earning three Pro Bowl selections during his stints with the Arizona Cardinals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Drafted third overall in 1996, Rice won a Super Bowl with the Bucs after the 2002 season.
The UFL begins in October with four teams each playing a six-game schedule.
