Black Friday Gets Best of Cardinals
The Cardinals hoped to retain safety Antrel Rolle despite releasing him in order not to dish out the $4 million roster bonus he was due. Additionally, he was set to make $8 million in 2010. The Cardinals, who developed Rolle into the safety position, saw Rolle picked up for $37 million over five years by the New York Giants. Fifteen million of that price tag is guaranteed money.
According to South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Omar Kelly's Twitter page, "The Cardinals matched Antrel Rolle's offer from the Giants, but he decided he was a better fit for the Giants 4-3 scheme."
Rolle was ready to move on.
While Rolle expressed interest in playing for the Miami Dolphins, it was only Karlos Dansby that fulfilled that dream. Dansby earned a five-year deal good for $40 million-plus with about half guaranteed from the Dolphins.
Also ready to role on was Anquan Boldin. The Baltimore Ravens picked up the physical receiver, plus a fifth-round draft pick. In exchange the Cardinals will have the Ravens' third-and-fourth-round draft picks.
The Cardinals could use all the help they can get. Building through the draft is certainly something the Cardinals are familiar with, but the Whisenhunt era has brought a culture of winning to the desert and it would be a shame to waste it.
