Synopsis

Jerry Rice by Jon Sterngass

Widely regarded as one of the greatest players in NFL history, Jerry Rice took the league by storm in his rookie season for the San Francisco 49ers. That year, he recorded 49 catches for 927 yards and was named NFC Offensive Rookie of the Year. Throughout his career, he was known for his strong work ethic and excellent performance on and off the field. In addition to being the all-time leader in every category for wide receivers, Rice was a 13-time Pro Bowler, a 10-time All Pro, and has won three Super Bowl rings with the 49ers. In his 20 NFL seasons with the 49ers, the Oakland Raiders, and the Seattle Seahawks, he missed only 17 regular season games, 14 of them in one year for a torn knee ligament. In 1999, The Sporting News ranked Rice second on a list of 100 Greatest Football Players. Retired since 2004, Rice made his primetime television debut as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars, finishing in second place.
