Kerry Rhodes Shows Why He Was Traded

New, comments

Many including myself were critical of the Kerry Rhodes trade. Kerry did his best to make the Jets look smart with a childish rant on the radio today.

Rhodes, who clashed with defensive coaches Mike Pettine and Dennis Thurman, accused the Jets staff of stripping him of a leadership role in favor of the former Ravens players Bart Scott, Jim Leonhard and Marques Douglas brought in by Rex Ryan, calling it "a slap in the face.’’

Right, so the team shouldn't look to upgrade its talent because the millionaire safety is insecure with his spot on the team.

I still don't love the trade. I don't like opening a gaping hole for a midround pick. Plenty of talented guys are difficult to deal with. In any event, Kerry looks totally childish.
