Giants On A Rolle!
For every positive that nine-year veteran Antrel Rolle brings to the New York Giants, he always seems to counter it with a big ‘ole glaring negative.
For instance, Rolle intercepted Michael Vick in the 1st quarter on Sunday only to then set the team back 15 yards because of a ‘group celebration’ personal foul penalty that he led.
Of course, after the game, Rolle immediately expressed regret:
“It was a bonehead move on my part, and it won’t happen again,” said Rolle, according to ESPN New York. The 2005 8th overall pick by Arizona also said that he apologized to head coach Tom Coughlin.
There’s no doubt that Rolle was the MVP of the 15-7 ugly win against Philadelphia with the interception, sack and onside kick recovery. Still, that is what he’spaidto do, right?
In his 4th year with the Giants, Rolle will count $9.3 million against the salary cap and is the second highest player on the New York Giants team.
So remember, when he talks more than any one else and is more dramatic than anyone else, he also gets more money than anyone else.
Rolle is doing his job. And in order for the Giants to have a fighting chance going forward, he needs to keep doing it.
