New York Giants interested in free agent safety Kerry Rhodes

Kerry Rhodes

NFL free agent safety Kerry Rhodes wasn’t a name you heard to often last off season, even though Rhodes was ranked as the fourth best NFL safety by Pro Football Focus just a year ago. The Cardinals offered Rhodes a one-year contract worth $3 million in March that Rhodes turned down. April is when the story broke about a man named “Hollywood” Simpson who claimed to have had an affair with Rhodes.  Naturally the assumption was that teams were shying away from the free agent safety because of that drama.

Now, things looked to have changed for Rhodes who will workout for the New York Giants on Tuesday. If the Giants are interested, they can offer Rhodes a minimum salary of $840,000.

Rhodes was spotted out and about in New York last week attending Fashion Week festivities and per r&b singer Maxwell’s Inatagram, playing wing man for the singer.
