Fantastic article with Rhodes

Hands?

“Inside,” Rhodes responds. “Gotta be quick because you don’t want him to knock your hands down before you even shoot ’em, once you do that, you lose leverage. If you lose leverage, he gets on top of you and stacks you and you lost the route. Once that happens, it’s over. Now it’s a guessing game for the corner.”

With every element of Rhodes’ ability to shut down the best wide receivers on earth, there’s a backstory. In order to improve his hands at the line of scrimmage, the 28-year-old took up boxing before last season.

Rhodes loves how it helped him dial into his target.
