Giants' Antrel Rolle buys into nickel and it pays off
GalleriesGiants 2012 schedule and results
Antrel Rolle has played a lot of nickel back throughout his career. During his time with the Giants, it was mostly grudgingly.
The safety thought he was brought to New York to be a ballhawk and make plays on the back end. It wasn't until late last year -- just in time for a run to and through the playoffs, coincidentally -- that Rolle finally embraced his position and the Giants began to soar.
