This move was about shedding money of a slightly [U]above average[/U] player who was not happy and causing a distraction in order to sign our own young top shelf free agents next year like Harris, Revis, maybe Braylon, Leon etc
Rhodes has not been a [U]good[/U] player in 3 years. Eric Smith was able to replace him. What does that say about Rhodes? Not much. Smith is an Average player/backup. If Smith could replace him, I think we can find someone better than Smith in the draft or Released.
Remember Rhodes' Ints this year. They were loft balls. The guy was in the right place, so I won't totally take it away from him, but his athletecism and football intelligence is not special. Plus he doesn't like to tackle. Can't have that in the last line of defense. That's basic football.
Good move by Tanny
