The Colts are among the teams interested in free agent safety Antrel Rolle, according to Michael C. Wright of ESPN.com (via Twitter). After landing Andre Johnson and Frank Gore, it appears that the Colts are not yet done trying to make splashy additions.
On Tuesday, Michael C. Wright of ESPN.com reported that the Bears are the highest bidder for the 32-year-old free safety’s services. At this point, however, he doesn’t have a deal in place. Rolle is a key free agent for the Giants due to their lack of battle-tested alternatives on the depth chart, but it has been said that the veteran is not expected to entertain a hometown discount. Rolle is after a three-year deal, something the incumbent Giants might not be able to entertain.
Rolle didn’t have a banner year according to the advanced metrics at Pro Football Focus (subscription required). Rolle got an overall grade of -13.9, placing him 81st out of 87 qualified safeties. Of course, with a lack of quality safeties on the open market this offseason, beggars can’t be choosers.
