With the NFL free agency period about to start within the next few hours, Antrel Rolle seems to be a very popular man.

After being released by the Cardinals, many teams are in talks with Rolle and his agent Drew Rosenhaus, trying to land Rolle in their city.

Antrel was set to make $8 million in the final year of his deal with the Cardinals, which is said to be the reason he was released, along with the $4 million roster bonus.

There are reports that Rosenhaus is currently in talks with the Chicago Bears.

A league source confirms that the Bears are indeed trying to sign Rolle. But, the Bears aren't the only team interested.

It's also said that the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins are trying to snag Antrel Rolle, as well as the Cardinals, trying to restructure his rookie contract.

Antrel was a top 10 pick in 2005, and started 15 games in 2009.

Rolle entered the league as a cornerback, but recently moved to safety. This gives Rolle a lot more worth on any NFL roster.

Keep watching and reading to find out where Rolle and other NFL free agents land in this very exciting free agency period, which officially starts at 12:01 a.m. Friday.
