Giants safety Antrel Rolle says he has nothing to fear when he lines up against Patriots receiver Wes Welker on Sunday.
Asked if he can handle Welker in his usual role of covering the opposing team’s slot receiver, Rolle said, “I can handle anything.”
Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News writes that when Rolle was asked why Welker is tough to cover, Rolle said he wouldn’t know because Welker won’t be hard for him to cover.
“I don’t know,” Rolle said. “You’ve got to ask those guys he’s giving trouble to. I don’t plan on having to answer to those questions.”
Welker will do his best to make Rolle answer those questions on Sunday.
