Would the New York Giants cut safety Antrel Rolle, a move that would save them $7.25 million in salary cap space? NFL.com lists Rolle among potential big-name cap casualties this offseason.

Personally, I find it more likely the Giants will re-negotiate Rolle'c contract, extending him by a year or two rather than cutting him.

NYG Cap Central noted this afternoon that the contracts of tight end Brandon Myers and cornerback Corey Webster are expected to void at the close of business Friday.

Here are some other afternoon NFC East notes.

Rod Marinelli gets chance to take over Cowboys' defense: 'He's the best' | Detroit Free Press | freep.com
Marinelli tackled this same challenge in 2010. He was the defensive line coach his first season with the Bears, in 2009, before he was elevated to coordinator. In 2010, his first season leading Chicago's defense, the Bears had seven more takeaways and jumped from 16th in the league in total defense (337.8 yards per game) to ninth (314.3). 'You're talking about a defensive coordinator that's phenomenal,' Kansas City coach Andy Reid said of Marinelli last season.
