Giants Morning Report: Antrel Rolle wants to return to Giants

New, comments

Tells Sirius XM NFL Radio that "I still have work to do."

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Let's begin your 'Weatherford Wednesday' with a look at today's headlines.

Work 'undone,' Rolle wants to return

Safety Antrel Rolle told Alex Marvez and Solomon Wilcots on Sirius XM NFL Radio Tuesday night that he wants to return to the Giants.

"I want to go back to the Giants for the fact I feel like I still have work to do," Rolle said. "No matter how good or bad the season may have been for myself, you know, we've got one championship and I feel like that's not enough. I feel like there's more, obviously there's more in the tank and more I need to provide as far as my services with that organization to try and help them win another title."

"I don't like to leave anything undone and I feel like my time there is undone for whatever reason. I don't know why I feel that way but it's just the way I feel. If, God forbid, it doesn't happen, then obviously I'm a man. I know that this league is a business and I don't try to take anything personal. That for me, right now, that's what my mindset is."

Whether or not Rolle will be back is, of course, far from certain. The Giants have said they would like the 32-year-old to return, but only -- in John Mara's words -- "at the right price." Rolle, of course, just completed a five-year, $37.1 million contract.

Rolle won't command anything near that on the open market this time. What, however, is the "right price?" Former sports agent and current salary cap analyst Joel Corry told me that "If someone offers $5M per year, he should take it before they change their mind."

The full interview with Rolle is below.
