Giants rumors have provided New York Giants fans and players alike plenty of reasons to smile over the first few weeks of the 2014 NFL free agency period.
Just ask veteran New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle. Speaking with NBC Sports Network's Pro Football Talk on Friday, the nine-year NFL pro could barely conceal how happy he is with the Giants' moves this offseason --
“I think it’s been very explosive,” Rolle said. “We’ve added some key guys to our program that can definitely help us out and help us win and contribute right away to our plan that we have going on for the 2014 season.”
The NY Giants have embarked upon a massive defensive overhaul this past month, highlighted by the signings of safety Quentin Demps (Kansas City Chiefs), Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (Denver Broncos), and defensive end Robert Ayers (Denver Broncos).
The NY Giants finished just 25th in the NFL in total defense last season, necessitating drastic measures in the eyes of the Giants front office.
Rolle made it clear that he has had to enlist some help in keeping track of all of the New York Giants' wheelings and dealings. The interesting part is where he gets his information from -- “My mama, she’s the niche when you’re talking about NFL football,” Rolle stated.
“I mean this lady can tell you what kind of coverage I’m supposed to be in, where I’m supposed to be, they used to call her the Mel Kiper of Homestead so she’s definitely on her game.”
