Speaking on SNY Wednesday night, safety Kerry Rhodes said he wants to remain with the Jets.
The bigger question is whether coach Rex Ryan feels the same way. Ryan and Rhodes spoke on Monday, and the head coach was unusually vague when asked about the player he benched for a short stretch late in the year.
Rhodes says he’ll speak to Ryan again soon, and he has the option to stay or ask for a trade. But it would be very surprising if the Jets didn’t listen to offers, no matter what Rhodes wants.
The Newark Star-Ledger says Rhodes isn’t especially popular in the locker room, and his inconsistent tackling probably isn’t popular with Ryan.
