Arizona safety Kerry Rhodes has confirmed he had a run-in with teammate Darnell Dockett at the end of Sunday's game against the New York Jets.
Rhodes says in an email released by the Cardinals that there was an on-field ''disagreement'' but emphatically denies a report that Dockett spit in his face and says the two have agreed to move on.
The dispute reportedly centered on the Cardinals' desire to allow the Jets to score late in the game so the offense would get the ball to go for the tying score. Dockett didn't want to allow a touchdown.
The issue became moot when Shonn Greene purposely downed the ball at the Arizona 1-yard line and the Jets ran out the clock for a 7-6 victory.
BEST OF MAXIM
In last Sunday's loss to the New York Jets, Cardinal DE Darnell Dockett was pretty adamant about the team's decision to let the Jets score late in the game so the Cards would have enough time to score a TD and a 2-pt conversion to send the game into overtime. He got so heated that he both said it and sprayed it in the direction of teammate Kerry Rhodes.
