You'd think that a 6'3" 214 lbs. guy would flourish as a FS in an aggressive defense like that.
The lack of physical play comment would be a concern I think for the Steelers if true. I'm sure they will be looking at the full range of DB options from retaining our players to FAs to draftees.
What really concerns the Jets and why they are taking issue with Rhodes is not that he isnt physical...in fact he is very physical...it is the fact they considered him to be a selfish player...me first attitude...who has a lot of Hollywood in him.

I personally think he would be a great FS next to Troy and would make our secondary and defense better and I think he like others in the past would buy into the Steelers team philosophy. And he in return would win Super Bowls as a result of it. That tends to change certain attitude issues.
