    Colts Not likely to re-sign Rhodes

    Colts | Not likely to re-sign Rhodes
    Tue, 6 Feb 2007 09:27:51 -0800

    Don Banks, of SI.com, reports the Indianapolis Colts are unlikely to re-sign RB Dominic Rhodes, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this year.

    I could see Atlanta scooping him up if Warrick Dunn doesn't come back...or maybe the Jets (who are probably still kicking themselves for not retaining LaMont Jordan).

    Rhodes is the kind of back I think that would fit anywhere he goes. I like him, wouldn't mind him in purple.

    He's gonna wanna go to a team that will make him the feature back...it probably won't be here...we've committed too much to Chester.
    Better for us to draft someone as Chester's eventual replacement (Adrian Peterson maybe?
    ;D)

    You say replacement like Chester is old, or that a RB drafted at #7 wouldn't be starting ASAP.

    Cedric Benson is a SECOND-YEAR RB...drafted at #4...and STILL not starting....so you never know.
    The important thing is that Peterson would be playing on a ROOKIE contract, while Rhodes is gonna want a BIG payday.

    I think it was mentioned during the Super Bowl that the Colts had tried Rhodes as the starter, and that he was just more effective coming off the bench. Any team would be wise to pick him up. The days of the one "feature" back are about over. Those guys just take too much pounding over a 16 game season.

    The Vikes most likely won't go after him... We have good enough guys to play along side of Chester Taylor...
