How in the Sam Hell did we miss out on that? Does the FO really have a plan?
Who says that the Lions FO didn't make an offer for him? But, I'm sorry to say that Arizona DID overpay for this guy. Rhodes was a fourth round pick to begin with, and in my opinion pretty much played to that level while in NY. To give up a 4th plus 7th rounder for him this deep into his rookie contract is kinda nuts. It shows just how desperate the Cards were to replace Rolle.
I realize he may be better than our other safeties outside of Delmas, but with the depth of this draft you can still find a starter in the fourth round. We found one last year, didn't we? And that draft wasn't nearly as deep in talent as this one.
