    As has been pointed out here a gazillion times, they can't make it happen because of the restrictions on the final 4 teams signing unrestricted FAs.

    =Z=
    So are we allowed to sign Rolle because he was released?

    Yes.

    Yes.

    Yes.

    I don't want them to do so, however.

    Re:Antrel Rolle and Dunta Robinson???

    Rolle is an excellent athlete and good safety with cornerback cover skills, at 6' 210, and 27 years old he could be a valuable asset to most teams. Not ours though.

    But he turned down a 6 year $32million contract from a team that brought him to the Super Bowl 2 years ago.

    He wants to be making $8 million a season. Are we going to spend $8 million a season to sit a guy in zone coverage most of the time? No way. Should we? No way.

    If Marlin Jackson is healthy enough, he'd be a good addition, if someone takes Edwards and gives us a 1st rounder we could use that on the secondary. Or we could draft Devin McCourty in the 2nd/3rd round.

    I think we're gonna get a lot of value out of the 2nd and 3rd round of this years draft. It's not worth paying Antrel Rolle.

    Because in the tampa 2 the corner position is actually one of the least important, and it's not worth spending 8 million a year on a guy to fill it... just like I said above.

    We're already overpaying Winfield, we don't need a guy making even more than him, especially since he's gonna bitch after the season is over because we're limiting his role, he's not gonna be a man coverage guy here like he was in Arizona, his production is gonna drop, he's gonna be forced to make tackles, it's not a good fit financially or schematically.

    A good corner is not a good corner everywhere he goes. E.g. Antoine Winfield(Buffalo), Fred Smoot(here), Leigh Bodden(Detroit), etc.

    Some players just don't fit in.
