Kerry Rhodes of the Arizona Cardinals, a dapper defensive back who wore out his welcome with the Jets because he was too Hollywood, recently modeled for GQ. Rhodes (seen here with Aubrey O’Day; he recently dated Nicole Williams and now may or may not have something with this individual) enjoyed the experience, saying he felt like “a Black Ken Doll.” Except for thongs.
Rhodes: No! I love most things Euro, but I can’t understand the thong, and I definitely won’t wear it.”
Smart of Rhodes to push the modeling angle. If the Cards’ top pick in the 2011 draft (Patrick Peterson) moves to safety this year – as some have anticipated – the final two years of Rhodes’ deal could … interesting.
