Antrel Rolle, former Giants safety, announces retirement

Antrel Rolle, the often unfiltered three-time Pro Bowl safety who won a Super Bowl title with the Giants, announced his retirement Monday morning.

“I’m done, yeah, I’m done,” Rolle revealed on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football.”

He played just seven games with the Bears last season after suffering a sprained MCL.

“I’m at peace. I’m at total peace,” Rolle said. “You know, like I said, going out, you’re 33 years old going on injured reserve last year, that’s going to scare a lot of teams away. I understand how the business works and I’m fine with that either way.”

The Cardinals selected Rolle with the eighth overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft. He played in Arizona until he signed a five-year, $75 million contract with Big Blue in 2010.

Rolle played five seasons with the Giants and was part of the team that defeated the Patriots 21-17 in Super Bowl XLVI.

Rolle signed a three-year, $11.25 million deal with the Bears, but Chicago released him last season after his injury.
