ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -Nobody's more excited about Denver's signing of free agent sacks specialist Simeon Rice than Broncos safety John Lynch.
The two won a Super Bowl together in Tampa Bay in 2002, and both believe this reunion in the Rockies could lead to a second ring.
``He's a teammate who I loved playing with and one of the great pass-rushers of all-time. So, we'd be - anyone would be - fortunate to get him,'' Lynch said Monday while the sides were signing the one-year deal at Broncos headquarters.
Rice, whose 121 career sacks rank second to Michael Strahan among active players, was released by Tampa Bay this summer after the Buccaneers signed first-round draft pick Gaines Adams.
Rice had failed a physical earlier in the day after reporting to camp, but has since passed his medical tests. The 33-year-old started the first eight games last year before being sidelined by a shoulder injury.
Lynch said Rice told him he was fine: ``He told me his shoulder's feeling good and he feels like he's ready to play.''
Coach Mike Shanahan courted Rice to bring experience and pressure to a young defensive line.
``He's a big-time pass rusher, he's been in the league for a while, he's got a lot of talent,'' Shanahan said.
