Report: Kerry Rhodes says he’s “looking at” four teams

One of the top unsigned veteran safeties is reportedly considering four teams.

While Kerry Rhodes wouldn’t name those clubs, the ex-Cardinal and ex-Jet told Solomon Crenshaw Jr. of Thursday that he intends to play in 2013.

“It’s in the works,” Rhodes said, per”I can’t talk about it in depth but there’s a good four teams that I’m looking at. There are ongoing discussions. I’m trying to see which one will be the best fit for me. You will see me, though.”

According to, Rhodes said news of a signing could occur in about a week, though the safety seemed to indicate that the timetable was fluid. Rhodes, an Alabama native, is holding a pair of fitness-related events in Birmingham in the coming days.

Rhodes, 30, started 15 games and intercepted four passes for Arizona in 2013. He has 23 career interceptions.

Another well-regarded free agent safety, Quintin Mikell, has reportedly drawn some interest from Carolina.

    This just in – “32 teams” are “looking in” the other direction.

    I’m surprised he’s still a free agent, he has always seemed to be a quality safety.

    just a guess on the 4 teams.

    Really wish Dallas would look at him. He is a pretty good vocal leader, and had some decent coverage/ballhawk skills. Perhaps he has lost a step, but I suspect the real issue is he just wants too much $$$$

    Are any of these 4 teams actually interested in Rhodes? Sounds like a guy desperate for positive press (see Deadspin articles). I haven’t heard of any teams interested in Rhodes.

    I would love for him to be in Carolina, I dont care if he is gay. If he can play Safety (and he can), then I am for it. WE NEED ALL THE SECONDARY help we can get.

    Is one of the four “the other team”?

    Come on Rams what’s the hold up?!!!

    I think this deal will come together quickly since the teams and Rhodes already know that he will start 15 games and have four picks in 2013.

    Patriots might be in the market soon.

    Kerry Rhodes instructed his agent to find the team with “the cutest boys.”

    Cards fan here and I was disappointed that we got rid of him. I think he still has 1-2 solid years left in him.

    He still has a nose for the ball – he’s good for 4-5 INT’s a year

  14. bossplayer213 says: Jul 11, 2013 9:17 PM

    Ummmm…nobody is going to sign you dude. Nobody wants to be this guys teammate. Coming out is one thing, but to keep denying what is clear to everyone isn’t going to go over well in a locker room.

  15. ohioteamsusuallysuck says: Jul 11, 2013 9:18 PM

    Browns should sign him

  16. xxbomberxx says: Jul 11, 2013 9:37 PM

    From what Ive seen on the internet he already plays for 2 teams… :/

  17. snaponrules says: Jul 11, 2013 10:26 PM

    Rhodes, 30, started 15 games and intercepted four passes for Arizona in 2013. He has 23 career interceptions.


    So he is staying in AZ and going to get 4 picks this year?

  18. Corey Jeppesen says: Jul 11, 2013 10:40 PM

    Bet he’s a Bill by the end of next week. He’d be used and valued with the whole Byrd dispute.

    i wonder if this is another lie like knockin up kk

  20. critter69 says: Jul 11, 2013 10:59 PM

    And the four teams are ______ ?

    Not even speculation on who the four teams are?

  21. frogkiller777 says: Jul 11, 2013 11:00 PM

    teammates are tired of his tight coverage.

    He’s a good player. I wish the Cowboys would sign him. There are rumors of him being gay. Unfortunately GM’s are afraid to touch him. No pun

  24. frogkiller777 says: Jul 11, 2013 11:48 PM

    Kansas city

  25. green41563 says: Jul 11, 2013 11:51 PM

    The Jaguars expressed interest but have decided to sign Hollywood Simpson instead.

  26. chris6523 says: Jul 12, 2013 12:20 AM

    This just in: Packers have invited Kerry Rhodes to Green Bay for a visit and an insulting contract offer.

  27. e23r0 says: Jul 12, 2013 12:32 AM

    Wouldn’t mind having this guy back in AZ.
