    Let's say we just cut Rolle and then KP goes to greener pastures via FA?

    Let me be clear, I don't care if the cut him or not, I do care that they have a plan in place and it seems to me that cutting ANYONE before you know who you are going to have is just stupid. There is no rush to release players you may need, especially if you are going to have dead money as a result.

    totally agree, if we cut Rolle and then couldn't sign KP we would be totally screwed. It has been reported that we have an offer out to KP, so who knows..he might re-sign and then we cut Rolle

    Exactly or maybe ask Rolle to take a pay cut if he can still provide depth.

KP and Stevie Brown would be fine as the starting safeties with Will the thrill Hill coming in on 3 safety sets. Sash is a good special teams player and reserve safety. Here's a quick highlight vid I found on youtube...I didn't realize KP hit that hard. whoever makes these highlight vids if your on these boards great job!

    The big problem with KP is "when he is healthy", and his knee has not been the same since he messed it up, and will not be the same again, plus we can not be paying someone to be on the IR all the time, no matter how good of an employee you might be, if you are constantly sick, you will be released and replaced.

    I want KP to stay but if he were to leave, I think Rolle, Hill, and Stevie Brown could do the job. Rolle is definitely being overpaid though.

    I am not sold on Hill at all.

    I love Rolle with that said, but with that said he should take a pay cut. He's valuable to this team, but his play doesnt match the pay.. KP is our best safty hands down we know what we have with him.. he's a beast, past two seasons he's played hurt. I blame the coaching staff this season for for putting him in way earlier than what he needed to recover just to get re-injured. Brown, who knows what we have with him.. yeah he had a lot of turnovers, but really wasn't all that impressive in coverage or against the run, but he hasn't played much until this season, so you gotta contribute some of that to learning the game. So, this season should show us what we really have in him.. Will Hill is young, but watching the kid play you can tell he's going to be solid.. at least I think so..

    Point is. I really want to see KP stay a Giant, he's terribly underated.
