  • Antrel Rolle: Debating His Future With The Giants

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2013/2/8/...-michael-boley

    Excerpt: "Today, let's talk about Rolle. We have to do it because the Giants are still in a salary cap bind, only about $2 million under the cap at this moment with several of their own big-name players to re-sign and 19 players about to become unrestricted free agents, and Rolle has a base salary of $7 million. That, incidentally, is equal to Webster's 2013 salary. The difference being Rolle has two years left on the five-year, $37 million contract he signed with the Giants while Webster is in the final year of his deal.

    Let me be clear here. I do not believe Rolle is going anywhere, nor do I believe he should.
    Sure, Rolle is overpaid. He is paid like a premier safety, a perennial All-Pro. He has never been that and has probably been overpaid since the day he signed his Giants contract. The Giants, though, did what they had to do when the signed him. After suffering through a season of watching C.C. Brown and Aaron Rouse pretend to be NFL-caliber safeties they paid the asking price to bring in a legitimate one.

    Rolle may or may not be a great player, what you think of his skills is for you to decide. He is, at the least, a good one. Probably more importantly to the Giants, he is the vocal leader -- the heartbeat -- of the Giants' defense. That comment comes with apologies to defensive captain Justin Tuck, but Tuck seems to have been lost in a fog the past couple of seasons while trying to figure out where his own career is going, while Rolle has become the voice of the defense."

    I have a hard time understanding that a player that has not put out for 2 YEARS is still on the team. Yet over paid or not Rolle always came to play.Just my thoughts

      The Giants look to the future at safety by cutting Rolle, signing Phillips (maybe franchise), sign Brown and use Hill and Sash as depth.

      Could anyone see this as a possibility?

          The Giants just seem to have so many options at safety that are cheaper. Rolle's contract should way heavy on Reese's thought process (at least IMO). Will Hill is actually similar to Rolle in the fact he can play the nickel and down in the box as well. He shut down Jimmy Graham pretty well.

          I don't know the details but I wonder how much the Giants save in cap space if they were to actually to do this. I don't know...seems like it would make sense.

            Rolle was signed to give us a player we couldn't seem to develop. Has he been that? Is he worth his contract? I don't know. But he does play almost every snap and he has been one of the leaders in tackles. I'm not saying tackles is the only measure of a defensive player, but he's not doing nothing.

              Rolle is like the Diehl of the defense. He has versatility sure but none of it really makes you excited considering the price you have to pay (in terms of cap hits) for his services. Some people really love him and others wouldn't blink an eye if he was gone tomorrow. It's a divisive topic on this MB and others for sure.

                Just remember, Not all Browns are created equal. Stevie is NOT C.C...

                  I believe Rolle has already restructured once and, personally, I think a lot of restructuring is what really put us behind in CAP space. I hope he stays but if they can;t do that without restructuring, they should release him. We have to remember his contract was an agreement between him and the team so it's not like he held a gun to their heads.

                    ....if its a sound business move they will let him go. If its not they wont.....
                    pretty simple.
                    His play nor his leadership(?) will not play a factor IMO. Neither is stellar as far as I am concerned.

                        I've actually been one of the Rolle supporters. The guy never misses games, is a vocal leader and has been very versatile. The thing is his massive contract. Reese over spent on free agents that year and with Canty and Boley already gone...I don't think cutting Rolle should be all that surprising. Especially when the Giants have a lot of youth and depth at that position.

                          Whatever you think of Rolle, the fact that he is overpaid is not his doing.

                              You are right about that.
