Is Kerry Rhodes being blackballed???
 
IMO he's one of the better FA free safeties still available this offseason but I haven't heard of any movement by teams to sign him.

Rhodes had a former assistant leak photos of them together which has led to Rhodes being labeled by some as being on the 'downlow'.

Any Cards fans know what's going on??



:confuse:

Someone want to explain why the hell you would want to drink out of a pineapple?

BallerT1215 04-23-2013 02:24 PM

They were talking about this on the local sports radio a few weeks back down here. Pretty much, they were saying the same exact thing as in him being one of the top safety FA's available but has no interest coming his way the entire offseason.

I would have to say possibly, but at the same time this whole FA has been out of whack. Charles Woodson feels like no one loves him either.

So we will have to see - if he doesn't get signed after the draft, then maybe he is getting blackballed.

P.S. - Rhodes was quoted as saying he loved the guy in the pics like a little brother but nothing else.

I'm pretty sure people have had the opportunity to take some pretty rudy cool looking pictures of me.

But I don't associate with grown men who drink out of pineapples.

But sometimes those drinks are really delicious.....and you are at weak moment in your life and someone offers you a delicious pineapple drink.....not that I've drank out of a pineapple or anything.

If no one wants him, I'd love to have him on the Jets for cheap. Then I could rock my Rhodes jersey again!

There's a lot of good FAs still available. The flat cap killed FA this year.

You'll see movement after the draft. Could be his asking price is too high, who knows.

Rhodes also has a reputation for being hollywood, and not putting football first on his priority list, which I'm sure can rub some coaches the wrong way.

Based upon these posted photos, I'd have to say its because hes black.

i don't know if he is getting blackballed, but he's definitely getting the shaft

PoopSandwich 04-23-2013 02:55 PM

I can't believe Rhodes isn't getting more interest to be honest, he's amazing at plugging holes

WCH 04-23-2013 02:56 PM

Browns fans are comedians today.

and for a safety he has very good ball skills.

He penetrates right through the tight end and gets to the quarterback better than I've ever seen

SuperPacker 04-23-2013 02:58 PM

if rhodes is actually ***, it would've been better for him to come out. he could've been one of the few players that was contemplating it.

don't think you can really tell from those pictures though.

bigbluedefense 04-23-2013 02:58 PM

He never takes a bad angle. He knows exactly where to go.

PoopSandwich 04-23-2013 03:01 PM

I know he used to play for the Jets, I wonder if he ever put his best foot forward for Rex?

descendency 04-23-2013 03:04 PM

Teams are probably afraid of Rhodes for the same reason they are afraid of Tim Tebow: the potential media circus. No one wants that in their locker room.

FUNBUNCHER 04-23-2013 03:14 PM

If the military can deal with 'out' soldiers, so can the NFL.
That media circus cop-out is sounding more like an excuse for NFL franchises to be bigoted towards certain players.

SuperMcGee 04-23-2013 03:34 PM

Guys, I might be super cool.

If that's not Rudy Cool, then I don't know what is.

hahah not too sure where you are going with this haha...


BUT, if a team is not wanting to take on a player like Tebow due to the media circus that follows him. I dont see why a team cant do the same for a player that is persuaded towards others dudes....it would also bring a ton of media and a team that is actually focused on football would not want all the extra media

I don't do the *** guys man. I don't do that. No, we don't got no *** people on the SWDC, you gotta get up out of here if you do.

I stand firm in my support of drinks inside fruits.

Coconuts are the only acceptable fruit-cups
