Cardinals free agent Gerald Hodges had a change of heart. After announcing his retirement in April, the linebacker has decided to play again, a source tells Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). He could be back to work soon as Schefter hears he is drawing interest from several teams.
Hodges has bounced around the league since being drafted in the fourth round by the Vikings in 2013. Midway through the 2015 season, Minnesota shipped him to the Niners and he enjoyed a career year in SF in 2016. After tallying career-highs in tackles (83) and sacks (three), Hodges hooked on with the Saints, but did not record an official statistic in his eleven games there. Last year, he joined the Cardinals and had a productive 55-tackle season.
Hodges has earned upwards of $5MM throughout his career, but the 28-year-old isn’t ready to walk away from the game just yet. From the sound of it, Hodges could have a new NFL home before the month is through.
