Jets Safety Kerry Rhodes Unhappy, Next Stop the Cleveland Browns?
To Cleveland Browns fans who are salivating over the possibility of grabbing Tennessee safety Eric Berry in the 2010 NFL Draft, there may be another safety Eric Mangini would rather get, and, yes, it's another former New York Jet—Kerry Rhodes.
Two weeks ago Rhodes was benched for backup Eric Smith, and Rhodes has been furious ever since, including sending out a Twitter message from his account that said, "I promise alot of teams would love to have me as their PROBLEM! lol."
Rhodes was also in a shouting match with secondary coach Dennis Thurman and it appears that bridges have been burned between Rhodes and the team.
If this is indeed the case, and the Jets will part ways with him, Mangini will be there to scoop up Rhodes and bring him to Cleveland.
OK, it is understood that the Browns and Mangini are way too infatuated with bringing in former Jets players and most of you readers are probably thinking, "please, no more former Jets! "
But before you shut out this concept completely, take this into consideration, current safety Brodney Pool is on IR and in the last year of his contract. His reoccurring concussion issues make Pool a liability for the Browns to resign to another contract.
Enter Rhodes as Pool's replacement.
Rhodes is a five-year vet with tremendous size (6'3" and 215-pounds), and has shown the ability to be a top-tier safety in the NFL, but only if he is in the right defensive system, which he is obviously not in at New York.
If the Browns can get Rhodes, they would free up their first-round pick to focus on a pass rusher, or an offensive tackle for the right side of the line.
Rhodes would be a welcome addition as Pool's replacement in 2010, and don't be surprised if he is yet another former Jets dressing up in the orange and brown.
