Antrel Rolle: Extension with Giants is “ultimate goal”

Giants safety Antrel Rolle was a bright spot in a dismal Giants season, finishing the year with 98 tackles and six interceptions.

That’s likely why Rolle balked at the notion that the team would want to talk to him about his contract before next season.

“I don’t think there is anything to talk about. I still have one year left on my deal,” Rolle said, via NJ.com. “I don’t think there is anything to talk about.”

Rolle has a $7 million salary for next season and a $9.25 million cap figure, with the latter number one that the Giants might want to see come down as they try to fill other holes on the team. Assuming they’re open to the idea of keeping Rolle beyond 2014, an extension would be the easiest way to make that happen.

Rolle called an extension that kept him with the Giants through the end of his career “the ultimate goal,” which would certainly contradict the idea that there’s nothing contractual to talk about with the team. Perhaps Rolle was thinking solely of a pay cut, which he certainly didn’t do anything to deserve on the field this season and would have little reason to accept because he’d find other employment pretty quickly if he parted ways with the Giants.

    Not only does he play safety, but cb, LB, and plays in the nickel. With all his talent, he’s one of the best free agent moves the giants have made in
    many years!
    He won’t go anywhere, BTW he is now a Captain, something his team mates voted.
    NY POLICE would need to send a squad of protection around the giants offices if this guy leaves! ha, lol.
    THE CT GIANT
    PS PRO BOWL?

    If you want a guy like him who is all talk and can’t back up his play..go ahead give him all the money he wants.

    Can’t wait for Stevie Brown to return.
    I hate Mundy. Brings nothing to the table besides being a “body”.

    C’mon Reese – this is your offseason.

    Rolle is without a doubt a recurring stud on the defense. Shouldn’t even be a question. As for Webster…

    Rolle is great. Outsiders and even some Giants fans might not always like his delivery/quotes but Antrel leave it all on the field and bleeds blue. I hope he gets a nice extension and stays a Giant for another 5 seasons. “once a Giant, always a Giant. Go Blue.
