Former Arizona Cardinals safety Kerry Rhodes in talks with multiple teams

USA TODAY Sports

While doing some offseason philanthropic work, he said we will see him in the NFL this season.

One of the more notable veteran free agents still on the market is safety Kerry Rhodes, who was released by the Arizona Cardinals in March. He was unwilling to take a paycut to stay around and the team cut ties with him.

However, now that it is July and he has not signed on with anyone, he himself is saying that it won't be long. In an interview he gave with All Alabama (al.com) about his fitness program in his home state of Alabama, he said that things "are in the works."

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

As you can note in the comments made by the members of this community when he was set to be let go by the Cardinals, the general consensus here is that he clearly has something left in the tank. The issue has been a large number of safeties available and a market that has not valued veterans much this offseason.

There has been one bonus with not signing right away. He has not had to attend any OTAs or mini-camps. He got extra time off. He does do his workouts, but I am sure he hasn't complained about not having to do those practices.

Four teams? Who could they be? Hopefully nobody in the NFC West or any of the teams the Cards play. He played very, very well in his return to New York against the Jets, his former team. I would expect a similar performance should he play the Cards again.
