Antrel Rolle Comments on Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and His Future: New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle spoke to Newsday on Friday. Some interesting tidbits from Rolle included:

  • On CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie: “I still don’t feel like he has shown what he can truly be in this league, which is one of the best corners in the NFL. I’ve played the corner position. I’ve been around several corners, and I know the talents and athleticism he brings to the game. He’s freakish. You put that together, along with the knowledge of the game, understanding where your team is going to be, when to gamble here and there, when not to. I think he has the best safeties around, with Stevie Brown, myself, Will Hill, and Quintin Demps. Now he needs to show how good he can be.”
  • On Rolle’s future with the team, given his current contract expires after 2014: “I do think about it. This is a business and this is the last year of my contract. Whether or not I come back or not is really not up to me. The only thing I can do is go out there and play the best possible ball I can possibly play and try to continue to be the same guy I’ve always been, for myself, for my teammates, for the organization. We’ll see how the season unfolds. I just want to play ball. Play reckless, make plays when the opportunity presents itself…Absolutely, I want to finish my career with the Giants. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. I’ve been with other organizations, and there is a difference. I think it will definitely be good to end my career here.”
  • On the Giants offseason: “Since my first year with the Giants, we’ve made the most explosive moves in free agency that I’ve been able to witness. Right now, we’re trying to change the atmosphere in the locker room a little bit, have guys who are a little different here, guys who want to go out there and play and compete, no matter how the game is going. I think upstairs (in the front office), they’re doing an excellent job with that, with the guys that have been here, teaching them the Giants’ way, maintain that attitude, that swagger that we need to be a dominant unit. So far, so good. I think the chemistry is awesome. This is the first time I’ve seen it this upbeat so early. I’m extremely excited about this year.”
