Finding a veteran running back was a top priority for Buffalo. Starter Marshawn Lynch is set to serve a three-game NFL suspension for violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy and backup Fred Jackson is a potential training-camp holdout as an unsigned exclusive-rights free agent.

During a Friday night appearance on Sirius NFL Radio, Rhodes said he was told by Bills management that he could start the season opener Sept. 14 at New England with Lynch unavailable.

"They're looking for big production out of me," Rhodes said. "I am ready."

Rhodes started four games last season in Indianapolis and finished with 538 rushing yards and six touchdowns on 152 attempts. Rhodes, 30, played with Indianapolis for seven of his eight NFL seasons and was a key player in the Colts' Super Bowl XLI victory over Chicago during the 2006 season.

Rhodes said he expected to re-sign with the Colts but an offer never came. Rhodes believes the lack of interest he received from other NFL teams this offseason stems from lingering character concerns for a DUI arrest he had in early 2007. Rhodes also served a four-game suspension that season for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.

"I was getting a little nervous," Rhodes said. "I was like, "Didn't I do a good job last year?'"

Clearly, the Bills thought so.

Alex Marvez interviewed Rhodes on Sirius NFL Radio on Friday night.
