Antrel Rolle Reportedly Expects $8 Million Per Year

Arizona Cardinals S Antrel Rolle is expected to hit the open market at 11:01 PM (CST) tomorrow evening for the commencement of free agency. The Kansas City Chiefs have a need at safety so we've been wondering if they'll take a peek at the former University of Miami star.

The Cardinals are reportedly still in the hunt to retain him while the Chicago Bears are the name with which he's most often linked.

The Chiefs? No signs of interest at this point, but if they want him, they'll have to pay, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

Rolle is expecting a contract that averages $8 million annually, one source with knowledge of the situation said. That's going to be a hard figure to reach. He already has turned down a contract offer from the Cardinals that averages more than $6 million annually, the source said.

Only three safeties average more than $7 million per year. They're all strong safeties: Adrian Wilson, Troy Polamalu and Bob Sanders. None averages $8 million, although Rolle's teammate in Arizona, Wilson, comes closest at $7.938 million.

That is very, very expensive if you didn't know.

The average salary of the top five highest paid free safeties: $6.25 million.
