Don't bother anticipating any animosity between Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice and his old Vikings teammates in Seattle Sunday -- because there is none, Rice told the Tacoma News Tribune.

Rice, who signed a five-year, $41 million deal free agency deal with the Seahawks before the 2011 season, said he's remains close with several of his former Vikings teammates.

He also said his job isn't to talk on the field, but to "get the job done."

The game Sunday marks the second time Rice will face his old teammates. They also played against each other in a 2011 preseason game.
