Why is free agent safety Kerry Rhodes still unemployed?

Free agent safety Kerry Rhodes has generated no interest from NFL teams since being released by the Arizona Cardinals in March. A source told Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com that there is "no buzz" surrounding Rhodes and that, while four teams worked out defensive backs last week, none of these teams worked out Rhodes.

So what gives? Rhodes is only 31 and had a terrific year in Arizona last season, starting 15 games and racking up 67 tackles, 11 pass breakups, and four interceptions while grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 4 safety. Rhodes would seem to be a valuable asset to any team's roster and it seems criminal that he is no longer in the NFL.

Florio and Drew Magary of Deadspin suggest that rumors about Rhodes' sexual orientation could be behind the lack of interest. Rhodes has denied the rumors but there has to be some reason why a healthy, Pro Bowl-caliber safety remains unemployed.

That's really fucked up.

This is why people are afraid to come out of the closet.

That shouldn't matter. Huge shame if that is the reason teams have not looked to sign him.

This is right on topic... listen to the interview. A grown man is crying on air saying he's sorry... he's sorry... like he did someone wrong. Being gay or whatever he is isn't a crime...terrible that he's gotta feel like if he lives as who he is that he's letting people down. Shit is crazy.

Yeah I feel sorry for someone who passed up a $3m deal and now is unemployed because of it.

Can't imagine it's because he's got rumors about his sexual orientation.

I know Rex and Kerry had their issues but with our issues in the backfield you would think we would take a look. Maybe we have tried but he was unwilling to come back, who knows.
