Gerald Hodges, linebacker: Show him the money
Hodges, 26, has drawn interest by both the Seattle Seahawks and Kansas Chiefs, who’ve both had him in for visits. The New York Jets are also curious, and Hodges most recently visited the East Coast on May 10.
Pro Football Focus graded Hodges No. 21 among all linebackers in 2016. He recorded two interceptions and tallied career-highs with three sacks and 80 total tackles. Considering his youth and prpduction, Hodges’ potential asking price might be a little high for teams looking to add depth.
Since entering the league as a fourth-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings in 2013, Hodges has earned what some might consider a meager, $3.671 million. Sometime soon we suspect a deal will be struck by a team willing to give Hodges a sizable raise but one that won’t break the bank.
