Gerald Hodges To Return To NFL

Gerald Hodges has decided that he wants to play in 2020, according to’s Adam Schefter (on Twitter). Hodges first decided to hang ’em up exactly one year ago today and has not been on the field since the 2018 season. 

It’s worth noting that Hodges also waffled on his plans in May of last year. But, even after saying that he wanted to retake the field, he was unable to find a deal for the 2019 campaign.

Hodges, 29, has been an NFL journeyman since entering the league as a fourth round pick of the Vikings in 2013. During the 2015 season, the Vikings shipped him to the 49ers. He went on to have a career year in San Francisco in 2016. After notching career-highs in stops (83) and sacks (three), Hodges hooked on with the Saints, but did not record an official statistic in his eleven games there. In 2018, he joined the Cardinals and had a productive 55-tackle season.

For his career, Hodges has earned more than $5MM from four teams across six seasons.

    Never heard of him. But in all fairness, he’s probably never heard of me, either.

    Gerald Hodges is the lead story of the day instead of the death of kicker Tom Dempsey? I would call that a major fumble.

      Cause the writer is a joke. But if it was Tom Brady it be 10000 different stories. Smfh. I saw it on ESPN. RIP brother man. My father said you was an amazing kicker

        Your father is a very smart man. Tom Dempsey’s ability to overcome a physical handicap and achieve what many considered unachievable inspired too many people to count. Every kicker since Tom considers him an icon who elevated the kicker position to a level of respect it hadn’t seen before.
