Even though the Cardinals will release Antrel Rolle if they can’t extend his contract before his $4-million roster bonus, the word I’m hearing is that they’ll be the favorite to re-sign him. They don’t want to lose him.
I am sorry but I just don’t buy this. I buy that the Cardinals want to resign him but I doubt they are the front runners.
If you signed a contract with someone and you were due a bonus of 4 million dollars that your employer agreed to and then they day before you were to get paid they fired you so they wouldn’t have to pony up but then they told you they wanted to rehire you because you were a valued member of the team, would you do it? Would you take it when a bunch of other companies were offering you the same, if not bigger contracts?
If I were Rolle, I would tell the Cardinals to shove it.
