Post Dolphins expected to make an offer to Antrel Rolle
Quote:
Mike Lombardi of the National Football Post hears that the Cardinals will be the "favorite" to re-sign Antrel Rolle even after releasing him.

Rolle's release will occur before Thursday night, when he's due a $4 million roster bonus. According to Lombardi, the Cards "don't want to lose him." Miami and Chicago are also expected to make competitive contract offers

Don't worry, Miami is definitely going to make a run at Dansby. I am a little surprised in regards to Antrel, but I think Arizona will do all they can to keep Rolle.

This is just speculation but if they are going to make a run at Rolle, I would imagine Wilson and Bell would battle it out for the SS position (may the best man win). I think if we did sign Rolle, it would be Wilson who would win out at SS (his natural position).

What kind of backlash would that cause if we were to get rid of Yeremiah and keep gerbil? Our probowler who led our team two years in a row in tackles gets beat out by a guy who is hated, that wouldnt go over too well with the fans.

I'd personally prefer to keep Bell back there.

Bell is the only guy on our defense who earned a Pro Bowl berth. I'm pretty sure he's not gonna be sitting on the bench next season.

"earned" is a bit of a stretch there. He was a replacement.

Bell is still better than Wilson.

Both rosters were, in essence, replacements lol.

Yeah, it is stupid IMO to have the pro bowl before the super bowl. :angry:

YB is a Pro Bowl caliber SS.

Him being forced into bad situations last year hurt him, but he is one heck of a safety.

And almost certainly a replacement based on nothing other than logistics too.

He didn't really earn anything.

I really like the Phins going after Mr. Rolle. Besides desperately needing a FS, Antrel also took some snaps in the wildcat formation for Arizona....just something else to think about!

I think Bell has earned his position, and we do not want to pay Wilson if we sign Rolle.

How much of the rest of Wilson's contract is guaranteed ... if any?

If Miami happens to land Rolle or any other high priced safety in free agency Wilson is GONE, period.

Doesnt matter if Wilson supposedly played out of position as far as I am concerned he isnt the right fit for our defense.

We need a true athletic safety that can make big plays, tackle and intercept passes. Wilson showed me NONE of this for an entire 16 game season.


I say good riddance.

See my earlier post, the Rams are likely giving him the lowest tender making him available if we give up a little bit.

Speaking of Cardinals, free safety Antrel Rolle will be cut today so the Cardinals don’t have to pay his $4 million bonus and the $12 million salary he’s due in 2010 courtesy of a contract he outperformed. But don’t shed too many tears for the former Hurricane because being one of the few young, talented players on the open market was Rolle’s goal.
While the Dolphins aren’t willing to pay Rolle the $7 -8 million a year salary he seeks, it appears plenty of teams who think they are a playmaking safety away will. But Rolle’s not just looking for a payday, he’s looking for the right team, and right scheme

Quote:
Rolle: As you know, The Miami Herald broke the story about Rolle wanting to play for the Dolphins. The former University of Miami standout hasn't changed his mind and he will get a chance to hit free agency because his agent Drew Rosenhaus and the Cardinals have been unable to agree on what Rolle is worth.

It is clear he's not worth the $4 million roster bonus due him March 9 plus the $8 million salary he's scheduled to earn from Arizona in 2010. Thus, the Cardinals will cut Rolle as early as Friday. They will allow him to test the market and see what he can find, while obviously believing they have a good enough sense of his worth that their offer to him will stand up with whatever the market is offering.

I regard this a case of more Rolle wanting to play for the Dolphins than the Dolphins wanting Rolle to play for them. He's a good player. He's a playmaker. But he, too, wants big bucks. (Shocking ain't it?)

The Chicago Tribune is reporting Rolle wants a contract that averages $8 million. The Dolphins will absolutely not come anywhere close to that. You might argue Miami paid an average of $5.5 million to Gibril Wilson to be a resounding bust, and that would be true.

But $8 million per year is more than game-changers Ed Reed or Troy Polamalu make on an annual average.

The interest the Dolphins show in Rolle will be the first test of Jeff Ireland's credibility when he suggested the team was expecting Wilson to play better in 2010. If Rolle is added, there would be no room for Wilson on the roster at all.

I believe Ireland to be honorable. I believe the Dolphins won't be making a strong bid on Rolle. We'll see.
