Free agent RB Dominic Rhodes is attempting a comeback.
Rhodes is 35. The last we heard from him was back in September 2011 when he was suspended for the entire season due to a third failed drug test. Rhodes was reinstated in January 2012. He wants to latch on with an NFL team in OTAs. We here at Rotoworld have just as good of a chance of being invited to join an NFL team this spring as Rhodes does. It's not going to happen.

Free agent RB Dominic Rhodes has been reinstated from suspension.

Rhodes was suspended for a year, ostensibly due to a third failed drug test. Having just turned 33 last week, Rhodes is going to have trouble finding a job in the NFL. His old standby, the Colts, won't be interested while going through a rebuilding phase. Rhodes has rushed for 3,286 yards and 26 TDs on 814 carries over an eight-year career.

NFL suspended free agent RB Dominic Rhodes for one year.

It is believed the harsh suspension is a result of Rhodes violating the NFL's substance abuse policy for a third time, but that has not been confirmed. Rhodes made his first three appearances since 2008 last season, carrying the ball 37 times for 172 yards in Indy's final three games. Four months shy of his 33rd birthday, his career is likely over.

The Indianapolis Star's Mike Chappell suspects the Colts will not re-sign free agent Dominic Rhodes.

Chappell believes the Colts will opt against the veteran route in the backfield, especially if Joseph Addai is brought back on a new deal. Rhodes was a fine late-season injury patch, but he's not a part of Indy's future at age 32.
Fri, Mar 11, 2011 11:44:00 AM

Colts RB Dominic Rhodes managed just 33 yards on 14 carries and caught a 12-yard pass in the team's playoff loss to the Jets.

Rhodes was a hero for the Colts late in the regular season, but he was the worst running back on the field Saturday night. The Colts will likely try to move on from him for good this offseason by acquiring a better option.

Colts RB Dominic Rhodes (hip, questionable) was limited in Friday's practice.

Rhodes is unsurprisingly a bit nicked up after a full UFL season and three games of the NFL, but is expected to play Saturday night against the Jets.
Fri, Jan 7, 2011 05:19:00 PM

Dominic Rhodes (hip) confirmed that he will play against the Jets despite sitting out practice Wednesday and Thursday.

"I'm fine," said Rhodes. "[Sitting out of practice] is just precautionary. I wouldn’t miss [the game]." Rhodes averaged 12.3 carries and 57.3 yards in the final three games while the Colts increased their average rushing yards per game to 149.

Dominic Rhodes (hip) was held out of practice again on Thursday.

Over-thirty veteran Reggie Wayne was also held out, so the Colts may just be allowing their old bones to rest up for the big game Saturday. It's Rhodes' second straight missed practice, though, so check back Friday to be sure he's suiting up this week.
Thu, Jan 6, 2011 03:52:00 PM

Colts RB Dominic Rhodes missed Wednesday's practice with a hip injury.

Rhodes is probably just getting the over-30 treatment after easily leading the Colts in yards-per-carry average during the final three regular season games. He'll join a committee with Joseph Addai against the run-tough Jets.
Wed, Jan 5, 2011 05:03:00 PM

Dominic Rhodes rushed 11 times for 48 yards with a lost fumble in Sunday's win over the Titans.

Rhodes nearly cost his team the game when he fumbled late in the fourth quarter of a tie game, but the Titans quickly fumbled the ball right back. Outside of that gaffe, Rhodes looked like the Colts' best runner for the second straight week. He came off the bench behind Joseph Addai, but played ahead of Donald Brown. Look for Rhodes, who was just brought back to Indy a few weeks ago, to share the load again with Addai against the Jets next week.
Sun, Jan 2, 2011 07:35:00 PM

Dominic Rhodes rushed 17 times for 98 yards in Sunday's 31-26 win over the Raiders.

Even with Joseph Addai (neck) back and Donald Brown starting, Rhodes earned the bulk of the running back snaps. It's an amazing accomplishment for a guy who was playing in the UFL just a few months ago. Rhodes, who spent six seasons with the Colts earlier in his career, appears to have plenty left in the tank. This backfield has the look of a "hot hand" situation going forward.
Sun, Dec 26, 2010 07:17:00 PM

Dominic Rhodes rushed nine times for 26 yards and added a four-yard reception in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

Welcome back. Rhodes was just signed two weeks ago and today marked his first action of the season. He immediately jumped ahead Javarris James as Donald Brown's backup. It speaks more to James' talents than Rhodes' ability to contribute.
Sun, Dec 19, 2010 05:36:00 PM

Colts signed RB Dominic Rhodes.

Joseph Addai (shoulder) is not expected to return, and Mike Hart (ankle) and Donald Brown (ankle) are both questionable to play on the short week. Rhodes is familiar with the Colts offense and could step in as Javarris James' backup at Tennessee. Though a 31-year-old Rhodes led the UFL in rushing this year with the Florida Tuskers, James remains the preferred waiver pickup.
Tue, Dec 7, 2010 01:31:00 PM

Former Colts RB Dominic Rhodes has signed with the Florida Tuskers of the United Football League.

Rhodes, 31, didn't get any nibbles on the NFL free agent market this offseason. Jay Gruden -- the brother of Jon -- is currently the Tuskers' head coach. He is replacing Jim Haslett, now defensive coordinator in Washington.
Thu, Jul 1, 2010 02:29:00 PM

Free agent RB Dominic Rhodes reportedly tried out for the Colts Tuesday.

It's odd timing with Donald Brown (shoulder) now healthy and Chad Simpson playing well in spotty action. We wouldn't expect an imminent signing for the 30-year-old Rhodes.
