- Ohm Youngmisuk has confirmed that Rhodes did in fact work out for the Giants on Tuesday.
- Josina Anderson reports that the Giants also brought in LBs Leroy Hill and Jonathan Goff for workouts as well.
Rhodes, 31, actually put together a very solid season for the Cardinals last year and there are a number of teams that could use some help at safety. Last year, Rhodes tallied 67 tackles, 11 pass breakups, and four interceptions and was rated as the No. 4 safety in the league by Pro Football Focus.
There has been some speculation that Rhodes could be getting “blackballed” by NFL teams after rumors surfaced of him possibly being gay this offseason. If Jurecki’s report is accurate, it appears as though Rhodes is only willing to play for a certain amount.
This comes just a day after Deadspin’s Drew Magary cited Florio as a source in an article that mentioned that Rhodes could be getting blackballed by NFL teams after rumors surfaced of him possibly being gay this offseason.
It’s not like he’s over the hill or coming off of a downswing in terms of production or anything. Rhodes could probably help a number of teams and would most likely require only a minimum salary.
