    Is that legit? He's only the #2 safety on THAT team the #1 imo (Adrian Wilson) makes 4.7 million according to an SI.com salary list (2008). Let me have some fun with this ... Bob Sanders (8.7 mil) Troy Polamalu (6.8 mil) & Ed Reed (3.4 mil). Kid better shrink his ego, he is not worth 8 mil a year in this company. No way!

    Ha ... well played woodnick. Plus I have heard multiple fellas in here claim Schwartz does not call them "free" or "strong" it's simply 1 or 2 safety or left or right safety. But if Rolle wants 8 million a season he can go fly his platinum coated kite somewhere else! ;o) I'll take a shot on drafting a Darrell Stuckey or Nate Allen in rd 3 & be good with it.

    Can someone confirm that Rolle wanting 8 million a year thing?

      I can not confirm that Rolle wants $8 mill/yr., but I agree with you that it is absurd to ask for that as a Safety if you are not named Reed, Polamalu, or Sanders.

        Heres the link to the rumor that Rolle wants that much. Adiran Wilson got a big deal in 2009 from Arizona, Rolle wants at least that.

          there is no such thing as strong and free safeties in schwartz/cunningham's scheme. they are equal and are identified as left and right. he's looking for safeties who can run and hit equally.

          and i'd say tackling and positioning should be just as important to him. i'm looking at myron rolle as a great fit. hopefully he slides down the board a couple rounds and we get the steal.

            Very true Delmas was up in the box some last year too. So theoretically we could have Rolle and Delmas assuming Rolle is a decent tackler(former CB????) too if they plan on using him in the box at all. But if 8 million per year rumor is true, no thanks.

              Yeah Myron Rolle (the Rhodes Scholar) is intriguing ... is he done with the school commitment at Oxford? Not sure I like the idea (like in hockey & baseball) of taking a kid then waiting a year, regardless of talent.

                unfortunately for everybody i think antrel rolle will sign with the giants very soon.

                its a bit sketchy on the legalities of taking the rhodes and his obligations but judging from his interviews i'm pretty sure rolle's schedule is completely devoted to football for the present. it seems as if his scholarship just allowed him to finish his schooling at oxford instead of florida state. (essentially studying abroad for his senior year) after his career in the league is over or when he's 30-34 years old he'd go to medical school and then become a neurosurgeon.

                two semi recent articles about myron rolle.

                    Glad we passed then. Definitely not worth that imo.
