Draft Scout Antrel Rolle News
12/17/14 - S Antrel Rolle, who is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, knows that he hasn't been playing his best ball. However, the Giants' defensive captain is hoping that the fact that he brings it every week is something that will be taken into consideration by whoever offers him his next contract.

"It'd be great to stay here with these guys. Next year we have a great chance," he said. "We have a great thing going."
