Nov. 25, 2012; Glendale, AZ, USA: Arizona Cardinals safety Kerry Rhodes (25) against the St. Louis Rams at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Kerry Rhodes doesn’t think he was blacklisted


With so many teams needing secondary help, it was kind of surprising to see veteran safety Kerry Rhodes go unsigned. There were rumors about Rhodes sexuality and some suspected that could be the reason he was being blacklisted, like Jason Collins failing to get a contract after coming out.

“I don’t think I was blacklisted,” Rhodes said to Jane McManus of ESPNNewYork.com. “Especially with the NFL I don’t think they would do that … to me it was a product of me wanting to do other things and not finding the right opportunity.”

He maintained that he is straight.

“I emphatically said no once and that’s all I need to say and people who know me know that’s definitely not the case,” Rhodes said. “To me I’m definitely not and I can’t control what people think, so I move on.”

We’ll see if he gets a shot from another team this summer in camp.
