    S Rolling Into Free Agency?

    Based on the comments made by Cardinals vice president of football operations Rod Graves, safety Antrel Rolle is probably going to hit free agency at some point. Rolle is due a $2.8 million roster bonus, and with so much money already being committed to fellow safety Adrian Wilson, Arizona would need to restructure Rolle's contract somehow in order to keep him. But even if Rolle does get a chance to swim in free-agent waters, Graves promised he would still be in the mix to bring him back to the desert because he has made the transition from corner so well.

    If this is true and Jerry doesn't hop on this then I will be upset.

    I doubt we will go after him unless the deal is simply too good not to.

    That's pretty much how we always operate. The last FA we went after hard was Leonard Davis. Everyone else, the contract had to be right.

    Rolle is only 27 and getting better... I think Dallas is keeping a close eye on that situation. Dump Ken Hamlin and allow Mike Hamlin to take over at SS.

    From everything I have heard he is not a GREAT improvement on Hamlin. And just how much would he cost?

    I guess that's the great question. Is he better than K Hamlin?

    I think Rolle would be a definite upgrade for us. If we could get him for the right price I'm all for it.

    For starters, Hamlin's team let him go and he didn't sign till late in FA. Rolle's team is putting up a fight to keep him so I don't know what brought you to that judgement.

    What is the fascination people on this board have with this guy? I didn't see any Cardinals DB make a single play in the playoff games against Green Bay or Minnesota. Is he any good?

    Well you have to also keep in mind the context of the situation we're in right now.

    Hamlin is going to make 5.6 million in 2010 while Troy Polamalu is going to make 6.4. Is the difference in their play 1 million dollars? I sure a hell think not.

    If we keep Hamlin, then we are paying him top safety money, and he simply isn't a top safety. This is our best opportunity to get rid of him, whether it's for a draft pick, FA or player already on the roster.
