The Arizona Cardinals broke their silence on the open market, as they made many headlines on the second day of the 2013 NFL Free Agency frenzy. A week after moving on from Adrian Wilson, Arizona has now also reportedly released safety Kerry Rhodes, though the team re-signed Yeremiah Bell to a one-year deal and is also acquiring a proven young cornerback off the open market in Jerraud Powers.
Per Rotoworld.com financial figures, Rhodes was slated to make $5.5 million in 2013 ($4.5 million in salary, $1 million in bonus).
He played in 38 games (all starts) and recorded 141 tackles with two forced fumbles, 4.0 sacks and eight interceptions in three seasons (2010-12) with the team. Rhodes, 30, missed just two starts during his first five seasons in the league with the New York Jets. Powers, 25, has played in 42 games (all starts) and tallied 210 tackles with six interceptions and one forced fumble in four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.
