Xavier Rhodes: Getting cut was a “reality check”

Xavier Rhodes in Minnesota. “data-reactid =” 13 “> Things quickly went downhill for cornerback Xavier Rhodes in Minnesota.

The first round of 2013 from Vikings was a first-team All-Pro in 2017, which was the first year of a five-year deal that seemed like Rhodes would be a fixture in the defense for at least that long. However, Rhodes’ game took a turn from that point on, and it was cut earlier this month when the Vikings chose to create cap space rather than hope for a rebound.

Rhodes signed a one-year contract with the Colts to see if that recovery can take place in Indianapolis. He spoke to reporters for the first time since signing that deal on Monday, saying his release was a ‘reality check’ about where his career has gone.

Rhodes will have some familiar faces to go to when he tries to put a new spin on it with the Colts. Cornerbacks coach Jonathan Gannon and safeties coach Alan Williams both coached Minnesota during the earlier days of Rhodes with the Vikings, so perhaps they can help him find a way to take advantage of what has been missing from his game in recent days.
