Giants FS Antrel Rolle claims he has four "great" seasons left in him.
The Giants may not agree. Rolle is entering the final year of his contract, but there's been no talk about an extension. It's not a surprise considering he'll turn 32 in December. Rolle did play at a high level in 2013, grading out 10th among 86 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' grades. Apr 24 - 8:59 AM

Giants FS Antrel Rolle said he's open to signing a contract extension with the team.

Rolle has one year left on his deal and is scheduled to count $9.25 million against the 2014 salary cap. The Giants have a ton of free agents and very little cap room. Extending Rolle could knock his cap number down and lock up a player that has performed well for the most part. There's also a chance the Giants could simply release Rolle. Stevie Brown would be cheaper to re-sign and should be healthy, and Will Hill emerged as a force on the back end.

Giants FS Antrel Rolle (ankle) expects to resume practicing soon, and remains on track for Week 1.

"Right now, we're ahead of schedule and things are going good," Rolle said Monday. Adept at playing through injury, we fully expect Rolle to suit up for the opener.

Giants FS Antrel Rolle (ankle) has already shed his walking boot.

Rolle's injury clearly isn't as serious as originally feared. Rolle will likely sit out the rest of the preseason as a precaution, but is firmly on track for Week 1.

Giants FS Antrel Rolle is in a walking boot after suffering a "pretty good" ankle sprain on Monday, but is confident he'll be ready for Week 1.

Rolle had to be carted off, but supposedly avoided a high-ankle sprain. "I am going to do whatever it takes to make sure that is not even a possibility," Rolle said of missing Week 1. Ryan Mundy is filling in. Rolle has missed just one game over the past seven seasons.

ESPN New York does not consider Giants FS Antrel Rolle a candidate for release.

More specifically, beat writer Ohm Youngmisuk believes Rolle isn't "going anywhere." It's a bit surprising, as the 30-year-old Rolle is due a whopping $7 million coming off a sub-par campaign. With the Giants up against the salary cap, it's quite possible Rolle will at least be asked to restructure.

Giants FS Antrel Rolle (head) has resumed practicing.

The Giants never clarified whether Rolle sustained a concussion last week, but the Bergen Record says he's been "cleared." SS Kenny Phillips (knee) also returned to practice and pronounced himself "full go" for Sunday's game.

Giants FS Antrel Rolle may have suffered a concussion in Sunday's win.

Coach Tom Coughlin said he's "not sure" if Rolle was concussed on his big fall out-of-bounds in the fourth quarter, but Rolle did fly home on the team plane. Rolle was never officially announced as injured in Sunday's game. He'll go through the league's mandated concussion protocol.

Giants FS Antrel Rolle characterized his Week 3 knee injury as a "lingering" issue.

Rolle suffered the injury when he slammed into a camera man on the sidelines in Carolina. "It's a battle," Rolle said. "It's a constant battle each and every day ... With this knee injury, it's going to take some time." Rolle expects to play in Week 6, but the Giants have depth concerns with Kenny Phillips (knee) out and CBs Corey Webster, Michael Coe and Jayron Hosley all battling hamstring injuries.

Giants FS Antrel Rolle (questionable, knee) "will play" against the Eagles in Week 4.

Head coach Tom Coughlin confirmed the news to ESPN's Sal Paolantonio. This was the expected decision all along, though. Rolle suffered a lacerated knee in Week 3 against the Panthers on Thursday Night Football.

Giants FS Antrel Rolle (lacerated knee) "won't miss any time."

The word comes straight from coach Tom Coughlin. "(It's) just a bruise on top of my knee and a couple of lacerations, but it will be fine," Rolle said. Rolle has racked up 21 tackles through New York's first three games.

Post-game X-rays on S Antrel Rolle's lacerated knee were negative.

Rolle did not need stitches, either. He may need follow-up tests on Friday, though coach Tom Coughlin downplayed the injury, calling it a contusion and a laceration. It appears that Rolle is day-to-day heading into Week 4.

Giants S Antrel Rolle left Thursday's game against the Panthers with a knee injury.

Rolle suffered a knee laceration with just under seven minutes left in the game on what looked to be a harmless play. He was chasing Greg Olsen in the back left corner of the end zone and hit his knee out of bounds on a sideline camera. Stevie Brown replaced Rolle and immediately intercepted Cam Newton. Rolle was carted to the locker room for X-rays.

Giants S Antrel Rolle will cover slot receivers while Terrell Thomas (knee) is out.

Thomas was slated to start opposite Corey Webster on the outside and then kick inside against three-wide sets. That plan is scrapped now that the Giants will have to turn to Prince Amukamara as a starting corner. Rolle covered slot receivers for the majority of last season, but still racked up a career-high 96 tackles. The Giants also won the Super Bowl.

Giants FS Antrel Rolle says he'll be the team's nickel cornerback this season.

It's a slight boost to his IDP value. Rolle will play safety on early downs and kick inside to the slot on passing downs, playing closer to the line of scrimmage. Opposing offensive coordinators seem likely to target Rolle heavily inside. He's stiff in the hips and will struggle with quicker, smaller receivers.
