not good for your free agent stock.

That is, unless you specifically are interested in signing with the Bengals or the Chargers.

Got that out of the way.

Colts RB Dominic Rhodes (who probably should have split the Super Bowl MVP with Joseph Addai) got busted this morning for DUI, clocking 81 on I-65 in Indy. This isn't the first time he's run afoul of the law, picking up lesser charges to avoid trial on a domestic violence incident in 2002.

Rhodes is hitting the open market this year, and looked to clock at least some decent cash from either Indy or the perpetually running-back starved masses of the NFL, many of whom are picking up on the "two-back" theme -- this'll probably cut into the payday slightly.

(Hat tip: The Big Lead -- also note that Falcons DT Jonathan Babineaux is in trouble for animal abuse. Bet Joey Porter's pit bulls would tear his dogs up.)
