Running back Dominic Rhodes arguably deserved to be named the MVP of Super Bowl XLI.
But since his name isn’t “Manning,” he couldn’t muster the votes.
Rhodes rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown in Indy’s 29-17 win over the Bears.
Later that month, he became a free agent. A DUI arrest (including a report that he made water all over himself in the back of the cruiser) cooled interest in him, and he eventually landed with the Raiders.
Cut after a year, he returned to the Colts. In the offseason, Rhodes signed with the Bills, but didn’t make the final roster.
Now, he could be heading back to Indianapolis for a third time. Aaron Wilson of NFP reports (and we’ve confirmed) that Rhodes worked out for the Colts on Tuesday.
The Colts currently have running backs Joseph Addai, Donald Brown, and Chad Simpson on the roster. Last week, the Colts cut tailback Mike Hart.
