Giants FS Antrel Rolle told reports on Monday that he’s open to discussing a contract extension this offseason.
“If that’s what they want to do, I’ll do it,” Rolle said, via ESPN New York. “I would like to retire as a Giant. The ultimate goal is an extension and add more years to my deal so I can stay a part of this organization. I know easily I have four years left.”
Rolle, 31, is still under contract for another year, but he will count $9.25 million against the Giants’ 2014 salary cap. According to Overthecap.com, New York should have close $17 million cap space to work with this offseason. Reaching an agreement with Rolle could reduce his 2014 cap figure while keeping him in place as their starting free safety.
Rolle has actually been very good for the Giants this season, as Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 10 qualifying safety. He finished the year with 98 tackles, two sacks, six interceptions, 12 pass defenses and a forced fumble.
