I think he walks after the 2014 season, unless either Hill or Brown are gone somehow. Reese will give him a low offer (a la Phillips or Smith), but he will find someone else to overpay him.

Coincidence that he's able to play deep safety this season and he already has 5 INT's? I think not.

How well do you guys do when your asked to do a job that your not familiar with? Or a job that you were not hired to do?
Dose that mean you guys are over payed?
Rolle makes what he should make when he is playing where he was signed to play and of story

He's not a cornerback, and wasn't hired as a cornerback, but he plays as a linebacker/safety/corner whenever he is asked.
You all complaining about his contract need to tell me who else would be adult in the Giants backfield the past few years?
brown and hill would be my preferred starters next year. rolle would be cut, with a huge thanks to him. and it will be ironic bc we will have cut him after a year he actually played up to his salary. but the 3 safety set was really bc we didnt trust the MLB in coverage. we trust Beason and will next year i'd venture. which will cut down on the 3rd safety looks even further. taylor cooper, and maybe draft one mid rounds. then i'd take the money that was going to rolle, we can cut him and not have it hurt the books iirc altho i could be confusing him with another player, and get a legit young corner to go opposite prince, and one beast pass rusher.
that way, the rest of FA and the draft could be to the OL, a stud WR if one is needed pending Nicks, a stud TE...basically with a new OC, we could get new offensive players if we were able to take care of the D as mentioned.
and i've been one of rolles biggest supporters even through the so called years he didnt live up to the billing (he was used as the nickel corner coincidentally). but these kinda situations always come back to bite us. he'll be another year older and we certainly wont give him a new contract like th eone he's under, so, maybe we cut him then resign him cheap.
some people have no clue what a guy like Rolle dose for a team. For him to come in here and play wherever they ask him to and never complain about what they are having him play is huge for a football team and he gets a lot more respect form his team mates for doing it. It's one of the reasons he was picked as a capton.

What cut him for a guy that hasn't played in a year and a guy that can't stay off drugs

The only scenario I can see is a restructure, or possibly resigning for a multi year deal that drops his cap number from 7 mil to something reasonable...
He makes what he's worth now. I don't see him taking much less.
But I wouldn't mind him taking less to help the team
