Jerry Rice planning to repeat full suit warmup at Super Bowl
Jerry Rice is ready to keep running routes in a full suit, especially at the Super Bowl.
Rice went viral before the NFC Championship after he was seen running routes in a suit during warmups, looking as crisp and athletic as ever. The San Francisco 49ers icon is planning a repeat performance in Miami ahead of Super Bowl LIV, too.
I just talked to Jerry Rice, who’ll be in Miami. “I don’t know if they’ll let me on the field, though, but I’m going to try.”
Rice will run at least one pass pattern during 49ers warmups in a full suit.
“It’ll be a go pattern,” Rice said. “I like to go deep."

Rice would probably love to play in the game, but he’ll have to settle for watching. There are certainly worse people for the 49ers’ receivers to emulate than the NFL’s all-time leader in receiving yards, and maybe he’ll bring them some more good luck.
