Thread: Any chance we trade Rhodes and go after Rolle?

    [QUOTE=Joe W. Namath;3515008]If you can get Rolle and move Rhodes its a no-brainer. and an upgrade as Rex wants a physical safety and Rolle fits that bill.[/QUOTE]

    plus if we get rid of Rhodes we could get several draft picks like a 4th this year and a conditional 3th or 4rd next year.

    yep...

    Though safety Antrel Rolle has launched his free-agent tour with a visit to the Giants, a league source tells us that three teams remain in the hunt for his services.

    Per the source, it's down to the Giants, Dolphins, and Cardinals.

    We're told that the deal will "probably" get done later today or tonight.

    So stay tuned.

    Rolle is not a physical safety by any means.. He was a nice tackling corner, but in comparison to other safeties, he's not physical.

    The guy was drafted to be a corner and was moved because he SUCKED. He had zero hips and that hurt him there. It translates to good coverage at safety, but tackling is another animal.

    Rolle is VERY similar in tackling to Rhodes. Arizona allowed Wilson to handle the in the box stuff for a reason. He's great at it, and Rolle could never do it.

    Is there no way, due to being in the final 4 that they Jets could go for Darren Sharper? He seems like a Rex type guy.

    Yeah I just heard on 98.5 Sports Hub in Boston that Rolle's deal with the Giants is 95% complete, so looks like he will be playing in NY after all, unfortunatly for the wrong team though.

    [QUOTE=jetsfan1983;3514980]Nate Allen is a very similar player. Good form tackler, but watch enough film on him and it's clear he's not a fan of big contact with bigger guys.[/QUOTE]

    I won't COMPLETELY disagree. But, if you're not satisfied with Allen. Screw safety and put Eric Smith back there. Then draft Brandon Graham.

    The Cardinals just picked up an extra third and fourth round pick in 2010 in the Boldin trade with the Ravens. To replace Rolle they ship a third this year and a fifth in 2011 for Rhodes.
