The Giants aren’t only going to be dealing with 24 unrestricted free agents this offseason. They could also be dealing with two of their highest-paid players who are already under contract for 2014.
Antrel Rolle and Eli Manning are scheduled to earn a combined $22.15 million in base salary in 2014 and count for a combined $29.65 million against the salary cap. If the cap remains the same as...Read more »
Players typically clean out their lockers the day after their season ends, but for the Giants that chore had deeper indignity this year. In a few weeks another team will be invading their space as Quest Diagnostics Training Center becomes the Super Bowl home for the NFC representative.
“Whoever they are, I hope they don’t trash the place up and they respect it like we do,” Terrell Thomas said....Read more »
It’s been a strong year for Antrel Rolle, quite possibly a Pro Bowl year. But one series of plays still haunts him.
It also happens to be the series that essentially ended the Giants’ season on Nov. 24.
“Nine times out of 10 I come out on top,” he said of the challenges the Giants coaches pose to him in terms of versatility and game-planning. “One time this year I didn’t this year I...Read more »
Justin Tuck spoke at today’s NFL Play 60 event at Maxson Middle School in Plainfield, NJ, about how his job description as a captain has changed this season thanks to Antrel Rolle. He said he spoke to Rolle during the offseason and asked him to be more of a vocal, rah-rah type of leader “to allow me to, when need be, go talk to guys one-on-one.”
Well, the need was be-ed on Sunday when Hakeem...Read more »
Antrel Rolle has been the outspoken voice of the Giants defense for the last several years, but there is at least one player on the unit whose words – though rare – even he must adhere to.
“If JPP says there will be blood,” Rolle said, “then there will be blood.”
He was responding to Jason Pierre-Paul’s comments about the upcoming game against the Cowboys. After Sunday’s win over the...Read more »
One of the biggest plays of the Giants game on Sunday was actually a mistake by the defense. But it was one in which they were able to recover and keep the Raiders out of the end zone.
On second-and-3 from the Giants’ 6 in the third quarter, the Raiders were driving towards a touchdown that would have given them a two-possession lead. The Raiders started out with Terrelle Pryor under center...Read more »
In other Antrel Rolle news, the Giants safety said his hit on wide receiver Jerome Simpson last night was “absolutely not a penalty” and he will appeal any fines that the NFL levies against him for the play.
The play happened with a little less than two minutes left in the first half and Rolle came across the field and leveled Simpson. Flags flew.
“It absolutely was not a penalty,” Rolle...Read more »
Don’t expect a sigh of relief from Antrel Rolle.
The Giants safety told WFAN during his weekly appearance that winning the first game of the season Monday night against the Vikings does not relieve the pressure that was building as the team went winless through its first six games. In fact, he said it’s just the opposite.
“I think the pressure is on now more than ever,” he said. “In...Read more »
The Giants had a good practice today.
Big deal. Congratulations. The Giants are still undefeated from Monday through Saturday.
As we’ve seen in the past few weeks, their good practices aren’t translating to the games on Sunday. And no one seems to understand why.
“We’re just not getting anything done on gameday,” Prince Amukamara said. “There’s really no secret recipe. It seems...Read more »
