Projected Contract: 1 year, $1.5 million
2012 Stats: 15 games played, 67 tackles, 1.0 sacks, 3 QB hurries, 4 interceptions, 2 fumbles forced, 11 pass deflections
Kerry Rhodes is still a starting-caliber safety in today's NFL. Despite having a down year with the Cardinals, he still produced four interceptions in coverage and has shown his trademark knack for the ball.
With Rhodes, a team can get an affordable starter for cheap. A team like Carolina, St. Louis or Dallas would be ideal for the veteran safety. Rhodes is worth at least a two-year, $6.0 million deal. So a team taking a one-year flyer on him would be a great move.
Others Considered: Quintin Mikell on a one-year, $1.25 million contract or Jordan Babineaux on a one-year veteran minimum salary benefit contract
