As expected, the Arizona Cardinals are poised to deal with the back end of a bad rookie contract by dumping safety Antrel Rolle, a top-ten draft pick in 2005.
Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the release is expected to come this week. But Schefter also reports that the Cardinals will attempt to re-sign Rolle.
Rolle is due to earn a $4 million roster bonus soon, along with an $8 million base salary during the 2010 regular season.
And that’s way too much for any safety to make.
