The P Posted March 5, 2010 Share Posted March 5, 2010 The official start of free agency is less than an hour away, but the Giants are already cranking on at least one player. The team is in the mix for former Cardinals safety Antrel Rolle and, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the 2009 Pro Bowl selection is expected to be in East Rutherford for a visit Friday. While we're handing out credit for scoops, let's mention Adam Schein of Sirius Radio, SNY, FOXSports.com and your corner bodega because he's been talking Rolle to the Giants for a few days now. I was telling my man Scheiner I was hearing similar stuff, but I'd be lying if I said I was as strong on this one as he was from the jump. One other guy who had picked up on some Rolle-to-Giants vibes is Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett. Schein had him on Sirius Thursday afternoon and pressed him on where he thought Rolle might end up. Dockett threatened violence against his then-teammate, who was cut a few hours later, if he didn't end up back in Arizona. Late Thursday night, Dockett tweeted he had spoken to Rolle and that he knew what was about to go down. "I'm speechless I'm going to Bed," Dockett wrote. "I'm done with twitter BYE!" The Bears and Dolphins have been mentioned as Rolle's other suitors, with the Cardinals apparently also making a push to bring him back. Earlier Thursday, it seemed Chicago was Rolle's most likely landing spot. But the tide has turned and the Sun-Sentinel report certainly makes it seem like the Giants are in the driver's seat in the race to land a player who clearly impressed them with an excellent performance at Giants Stadium last season. Stay tuned. http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2010/03/ny_giants_expected_to_host_fre.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
