I suggest having a friend do the hand test while you get under the car. This way you can follow the steering component movement and see if its localized to the tie rod ends or does continue back to the rack. I also suggest only jacking up one side of the car at a time (if you didn't do that the first time) as it isolates one side at a time. But you are correct, with that amount of play the rack is sounding suspicious.
