Even in the Tampa-2 scheme that we fans incessantly predict Tomlin will switch to, we don't need overbearing corners like Rhodes. Both schemes simply require guys who can play strong zone defense. Even though I would be intrigued if he were available, I don't see the fit.
I agree it doesn't fit our system, but with the evolving offenses, you can barely get to a QB anymore. So the best bet may be to ruin a WR's route to make the QB hold the ball a second longer. As the game evolves it may be the only way to consistently get to a QB.
