New York Giants' news, 7/14: Antrel Rolle, Terrell Thomas ... and linebackers

New York Giants news and notes for Sunday.

New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle admitted to Art Stapleton of The Record that there were times during the offseason when he wondered if he would be the next high-priced veteran player let go by the New York Giants. Rolle has a five-year, $37 million contract and his 2013 cap hit is $9.25 million.

The offseason came and went, however, and Rolle remained a Giant. He told Stapleton he knows what the expectations are.

"I have something to prove each and every year," said Rolle, 30. "Every year for me is a different year, a new year. Every year I'm proving myself: 'Is he a Pro Bowl player? Is he going to be the all-around guy we expect?' Each year there's a new set of goals for me. … The level of expectation for myself is going to be through the roof."

Cornerback Terrell Thomas, trying to come back after his third ACL surgery and having missed two straight seasons, was asked on 'NFL Total Access' if it was 'now or never' for his NFL career.

"It does. It has to be. It’s hard in the NFL. It’s a high-performance business, a lot of young guys coming in the league coming for your spot. I’m going into my sixth year – still a young guy – but playing cornerback with two ACL’s, it’s getting real thin. It’s been a tough year, but I’ve been pushing through it and I’m healthy right now."
