I'm very excited to see Rolle back at his natural position this year. He did an outstanding job this year playing all over the field. Bottom line, he is still one of the better safety's in the league, and should be able to take the majority of the snaps back there this year. With the depth we seem to have at CB, and Rolle and Phillips at safety, the backfield is improved exponentially.

well see.

He was supposed to be playing safety last year before the injury bug struck.

well see.

I hate to say it, since he's a former Cane, but his play has not matched his contract even before the injury bug and him playing out of position.

we definetly over paid for him without a doubt, but thats not his fault. I like him, hes pretty good in coverage, good against the run, great tackler, and can blitz. I love that we have him on the team, just wish it could be for a lil less $.

I am upbeat about our overall upgrade in the secondary including some young guys with big upside.

I am excited about Antrell Rolle moving back to his natural position. We did overpay for him but he really matured last year and developed into a positive leader that we needed.

Antrel is 100% a ball-hawk in the safety position , that's if they actually let him play there for once

yeah i would like to see a little less talkee and a little more playee from Mr. Rolle

and im not going to get on him so much for plays that he has allowed ... it's tough back there, but i would like to see him make a few more plays to help justify what we are paying him

While that may be so, his leadership and willingness to publicly "encourage" some of his teammates to get off their collective and individual asses began what we eventually called "ALL-IN."

Rolle evolved as a force for the good of the team. His own turning point came when Perry Fewell challenged the younger players, including Rolle, to think about the older players who may never get another shot at the brass ring.

Rolle, in my estimation, earned every penny of his contract last year.

+1,000,000...that is until the injuries rack up in the secondary like they do every...single...year.

Hopefully we stay healthy so he can stay at safety.

I hope he becomes a Mentor to Janzen Jackson. The kid has a lot of talent. Maybe he can get him to concentrate on playing Football
