Still upset about being taken out of the starting lineup, New York Jets safety Kerry Rhodes went on Twitter today to say he thinks he’d be appreciated elsewhere.
“New York is an OK place to play! Very good place to live and do other things, but to play is OK. I love real fans like you, trust me. The only reason I would leave is to show the few that hate what I will do with another team and let them know that having me isn’t that bad! I promise a lot of teams would love to have me as their problem!”
Rhodes and Jets coach Rex Ryan are clearly not on the same page about Rhodes’ role in the defense, and Rhodes yelled at a Jets assistant during Thursday’s practice. For as much as Rhodes seems to think he deserves to be a starter for the Jets, at this point it’s hard to see why Ryan would want him on the team at all. Which means that in a few months, Rhodes can find out exactly how much he’d be appreciated elsewhere.
