Friday Briefs: Rhodes highest paid Safety in NFL

Happy Friday to all! It's the end of the week and I am back in business, baby! It's game time!

Rhodes signs 33.5 million extension from Jets- New York safety Kerry Rhodes signed a 5-year $33.5 million dollar extension on Thursday, making him the highest paid safety in the league. In three seasons with the Jets, Rhodes has recorded 213 tackles, eight sacks and 10 interceptions- New York Times

Another Bears linebacker wanting money situation???- The Bears are $16 million under the salary cap and Brian Urlacher wants a new contract. Urlacher didn't show up for the start of voluntary work outs. He's making close to $4 million this season (just like last season) and he is signed through 2011. A training camp holdout seems unlikely. This is certainly not the last you'll hear of the Urlacher contract situation- Chicago Tribune

Hobson signs with Patriots- Former Jet linebacker Victor Hobson signed a one year contract with the New England Patriots on Monday. Hobson had 48 tackles for the Jets last season- New York Daily News

That's all I have. Enjoy the weekend!
