Tannenbaum: Rhodes will receive his Bonus and Remain with the Jets
[quote] Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum stated Friday that FS Kerry Rhodes will remain with the team in 2010.
NY Daily News beat writer Rich Cimini is bound to be skeptical -- he's long been convinced Rhodes will be dealt -- but the Jets are poised to pay the free safety's roster bonus on March 12. Rhodes, 27, is signed through 2012.

Just a blurb at the bottom, but here's the Newark Star-Ledgers link
I bet he changed his mind when all the other players told him how they'd kill to play for Rex. Rhodes was coming off like a spoiled, self entitled prick. Can't deny that he came on strong at the end of the season after they humbled his ass. If he really wants to be here and really wants to work then I'm all for it. Kerry is the only thing holding Kerry back. Rex is trying to make him a great player, question is does Rhodes have the dedication to make it happen?
I would imagine the Jets would want to say this, just to not give off the impression they are looking to move him. I'm not saying they are, this is probably legit. But, teams probably are not as willing to give up high draft pick for a guy the Jets don't want to keep, no?
