  According to Adam Schefter, of ESPN, former top-10 draft pick from Miami University, Antrel Rolle, will be released sometime this week. Rolle is due to earn a $4 million roster bonus soon, along with an $8 million base salary.

  The Cardinals are expected to try and re-sign Rolle to a new contract, but once he hits the open market he can sign with any of the other 31 teams.

  Rolle has expressed interest in returning home to Miami and play for the Dolphins. The Dolphins who don't have a true free safety, but Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland says converted strong safety Gibril Wilson is apart of the future for the team.

  Rolle was a cornerback for the University of Miami and was converted to a free safety by the Cardinals.

 Other potential teams interested in Antrel Rolle are: New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Houston Texans, Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints, and Seattle Seahawks.

  So Antrel Rolle should have no problem finding a job in the open market.
