Some interesting stuff coming out of the Sun-Sentinal in Florida, where visiting safety Antrel Rolle makes his home. The report today says the Dolphins have a very solid five-year offer on the table for him, but it's somewhere south of the $8 million average he seeks. So today's meeting with the Giants should probably be considered a very serious meeting, even in light of the fact that Arizona, too, wants to re-sign him.
The piece noted that Rolle wants to play in a defense that will allow him to ballhawk ala Ed Reed, and not just play centerfield. That would seem to fit in with Perry Fewell's turnover-based system. But the Jets, supposedly another interested party, could also be an attractive alternative, especially if they come up with the bucks. Remember, even as an Elite-Eight team, there are no restrictions when it comes to Rolle, as he was cut and therefore not a true unrestricted free agent.
Don't know how today's meeting will end up. But it does seem like Rolle has some decent options out there. If Reese starts talking in another financial zip code, Rolle might just roll out of the Meadowlands.
