Giants sign Cards S Antrel Rolle for $37 millionPosted: Updated:
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Giants have made Pro Bowler Antrel Rolle the richest safety in the NFL.
In the waning hours of the opening day of free agency, Rolle signed a five-year, $37 million contract that has $15 million in guaranteed money.
Agent Drew Rosenhaus tweeted the announcement late Friday, offering his personal congratulations to Rolle on becoming "the highest paid safety in NFL history!"
The signing fills a major need for the Giants, who lost Kenny Phillips to a serious knee injury early last season.
Rolle, who was recently released by the Cardinals, had four interceptions last season.
