Default Should we Rolle the dice??

Arizona's eventful offseason will continue this week when the Cardinals release former first-round pick Antrel Rolle, an NFL source said Sunday.

Rolle's release will follow Kurt Warner's retirement and the Cardinals decision not to use their franchise tag on linebacker Karlos Dansby.


NFC West
ESPN.com's Mike Sando writes about all things NFC West in his division blog.

• Network: NFL Nation


Rolle will become the premier safety in this year's free-agent class, but it is still possible the safety will return to the Cardinals.

Arizona would like to have Rolle back, and the two sides continue to talk about a potential return.

With less than a week until the start of the March 5 free-agent signing period, Rolle wants to see what he's worth at a time when the Cardinals are reluctant to pay him more than the $12 million that would be owed to him this season.

Rolle had four interception and was a Pro Bowl alternate this season. A starter on the Cardinals' Super Bowl team, Rolle moved to free safety in 2008 after playing cornerback for his first three seasons. He has 12 interceptions and four touchdowns in his career.

I don't see the need for him. We need to think CB before safety.

If there's one position that looks set for now, it's at safety.

Maybe McD did have a clue about what he was doing-- secure the secondary now (last year), so he can focus on the front 7 (this year).

and the Oline, course...

I'm always in favor of bringing any guys from The U. That being said, I don't see us going after another safety this year, especially at the price Rolle would cost

Why spend the money on Rolle? Both safety spots are set with a veteran and a 2nd year backup plus Josh Barrett.

Safety is the deepest position on the roster without any controversy.

I would not dismiss looking at Rolle. He was a converted CB turned into safety and has a great nose for the ball and when he gets picks, he usually runs them back quite a long way, making the opposing team really pay, not just in the turnover dept, but also in field position.

I'd wait though to see what other teams might come to the table with. I don't think there is any team going to look at bringing him for 12 million, which is why the Cards released him. But if you could get him at 5 million per, I would seriously look at that. He's alot younger the Hill, who then could be released if you did bring it Rolle.

Bingo...but I don't think we could get him that cheap

I imagine it will be him that takes over when Dawkins finally hangs it up.

How long do you think it's secure for? The entire secondary is in there 30's...by the time the rest of the team gets any where near respectable...that secondary will be done!

Yeah...because single season turn arounds are so rare in the NFL.

That's why we have young talent (McBath, Bruton, Smith, Barrett, Carter) behind them learning the ropes. This is what smart teams do.

McDaniels added Dawkins, Hill, Goodman, Smith, and McBath last season when everyone was screaming for front 7 help. For the most part it was a good decision to load up the secondary. After all, who could we have added that would have made a difference up front? Now that he has "his" players, i don't think he'll mess with the secondary much. There's basically no chance that we sign Rolle, or any safety unless it's a too good to pass up BPA kind of situation in the draft. I just hope we sign a backup CB that is much younger than Law.

I wouldn't pay for Rolle when when have a number of young safeties, and they have plenty of solid safeties in the draft for cheaper ( Myron Rolle, Chad Jones, Earl Thomas, Eric Berry, Rashad Jones, etc.)

who would have ever thought we would have been saying this 2 years ago?

also in our safety position, Bruton, Barrett and McBath all performed pretty well and we don't have a pressing need to bring in guys who we can groom
