Antrel Rolle DB NYG 9 Months
Giants FS Antrel Rolle claims he has four "great" seasons left in him.
The Giants may not agree. Rolle is entering the final year of his contract, but there's been no talk about an extension. It's not a surprise considering he'll turn 32 in December. Rolle did play at a high level in 2013, grading out 10th among 86 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' grades.

Giants FS Antrel Rolle said he's open to signing a contract extension with the team.
Rolle has one year left on his deal and is scheduled to count $9.25 million against the 2014 salary cap. The Giants have a ton of free agents and very little cap room. Extending Rolle could knock his cap number down and lock up a player that has performed well for the most part. There's also a chance the Giants could simply release Rolle. Stevie Brown would be cheaper to re-sign and should be healthy, and Will Hill emerged as a force on the back end.

Giants FS Antrel Rolle is in a walking boot after suffering a "pretty good" ankle sprain on Monday, but is confident he'll be ready for Week 1.
Rolle had to be carted off, but supposedly avoided a high-ankle sprain. "I am going to do whatever it takes to make sure that is not even a possibility," Rolle said of missing Week 1. Ryan Mundy is filling in. Rolle has missed just one game over the past seven seasons.

ESPN New York does not consider Giants FS Antrel Rolle a candidate for release.
More specifically, beat writer Ohm Youngmisuk believes Rolle isn't "going anywhere." It's a bit surprising, as the 30-year-old Rolle is due a whopping $7 million coming off a sub-par campaign. With the Giants up against the salary cap, it's quite possible Rolle will at least be asked to restructure.

Giants FS Antrel Rolle characterized his Week 3 knee injury as a "lingering" issue.
Rolle suffered the injury when he slammed into a camera man on the sidelines in Carolina. "It's a battle," Rolle said. "It's a constant battle each and every day ... With this knee injury, it's going to take some time." Rolle expects to play in Week 6, but the Giants have depth concerns with Kenny Phillips (knee) out and CBs Corey Webster, Michael Coe and Jayron Hosley all battling hamstring injuries.
