Rhodes: Dockett 'did not spit in my face'

By Mike Sando

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic passes along a comment from Cardinals free safety Kerry Rhodes denying a report that teammate Darnell Dockett spit in his face during the team's 7-6 defeat to the New York Jets.

From Rhodes: "Yes, we had a disagreement on the field but, no he did NOT spit in my face. I'm not going to get into all the details because I think those are things you keep within the team. But Darnell and I talked after the game, we’re both moving on and I’ll leave it at that."

The disagreement was apparently over the Cardinals' decision to let the Jets score late in the game as a means toward getting the ball back for the Arizona offense. The Jets fell on the ball short of the goal line and ran out the clock.
