With the Bears’ having swinging for the fences for Julius Peppers, we’re hearing Chicago has dropped out of the Antrel Rolle sweepstakes.
Rolle is seeking to make $8-million-per-season, which would make him the highest paid safety in the league. That was deemed too rich by the Bears.
It now looks like a three-team race, with the Cardinals a big underdog to the Giants and Dolphins.
It’s worth noting that New York’s interest in Rolle could indicate some serious concern about Kenny Phillips’ recovery. And Miami’s interest doesn’t sound good for Gibril Wilson’s future with the Dolphins.
