Dolphins Weren't Serious About Signing Antrel Rolle
Sun Mar 7, 2010 -- www.ffmastermind.com

Scout.com reports FS Antrel Rolle says a homecoming wasn't in the offing. A South Florida native, Rolle said the Miami Dolphins never got high enough in the free-agent bidding to garner serious consideration. Rolle instead signed a five-year, $37 million contract with the New York Giants that makes him the highest-paid safety in NFL history. Rolle, who played at the University of Miami and South Dade High School, said the Dolphins weren't willing to spend above $30 million. He also said a free-agent visit to Miami was never scheduled. "They never reached out," Rolle said. Rolle said Arizona was willing to match New York's offer but he was ready to move on after five NFL seasons. Rolle was released last week by the Cardinals so the team didn't have to pay a $4 million roster bonus.

Ya well I was never a big fan of rolle, Just FYI in his career he only has 2 more INTs then the MLB we just signed Dansby. So not that impressed with him overall, especially for that money
Rolle 12
Dansby 10

If your more interested in how much wealth you can accumulate, if $30 isn't enough money for you to live the rest of your life in comfort, then don't blame a team for not wanting to break the bank to get you. Rolle was looking for the biggest payday he could get, in the end playing at home really wasn't all that important. I'm not blaming him, those are his priorities and he got what he want. But there is no shame in the Phins not getting into a bidding war over the guy either.

Like Phin said, Rolle was about the most money, PERIOD. Miami offered him a very good deal and when you consider how he is going to get ripped in regards to taxes in NY, but could have avoided state taxes in Miami, the Phins were probably closer than he thinks.

Don't matter though, Rolle got what he wanted, the biggest deal he could get. The BS about coming home was exactly what it was, BS. That is, unless the Phins would have offered the most money.

New Jersey has a 10.75% state income tax on earnings over $1M. It'll depend on how the contract was structured but it looks like it would have been nearly even.
