Rolle rumors are false

According to the Washington Post the rumors of the Redskins acquiring Rolle are false. Mainly because of his asking price.

[ Meanwhile, reports of Washington's imminent signing of cornerback Samari Rolle are false, said several sources familiar with the situation. According to one club source, Rolle hasn't even been on Washington's list of free-agent targets, largely because of his asking price. One of the hottest rumors at the Indianapolis combine was Rolle going to Washington for a signing bonus of up to $15 million. (Gregg Williams, Washington's assistant head coach of defense, was Rolle's defensive coordinator at Tennessee for Rolle's first three NFL seasons. And Rolle is a former teammate of Redskins safeties coach Steve Jackson.) However, the misinformation was apparently spread to exploit owner Daniel Snyder's reputation for free spending while increasing Rolle's value in free agency. According to one NFL source, Rolle is scheduled to visit the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday. ]


Also theres still a chance of retaining Smoot.

[ The situation means that free agent cornerback Fred Smoot -- who has declined a $10 million bonus -- still has a chance to return for his fifth NFL season.

"Fred's desire is Washington, but there's a whole lot of fish out there in the sea," Smoot's agent, Bus Cooke, said Monday night. "We've had amicable talks with Mr. Snyder and Mr. Gibbs. We'll see how it plays out." ]

George Michael of News Channel 4 said that the Redskins are now offering Smoot an 11.5 million dollar signing bonus. However, Smoot is asking for 13.5.

Keep your fingers crossed.

Re: Rolle rumors are false

i'd like to see him stay... really i wouldn't care if it were him or rolle... but i don't think i'd want harris starting right now...

the rolle rumors made sense though, since we got harris and springs cheaply due to injuries.

Re: Rolle rumors are false

I think if the difference between what the skins offer and what another team offers is between 1-2 million he'll stay.

Re: Rolle rumors are false

I never thought the Rolle rumors were true. It just didnt seem like a mistake Gibbs would make. Rolle just had surgury, is older, and more expensive then the guy that is a team leader.

Re: Rolle rumors are false

The Rolle rumor was especially pushed by Pasta-belly. He really milked the Snyder angle in his piece on ESPN.com today. All to f--- with the skins, no doubt. Ugh, I hate that Fat F---

Re: Rolle rumors are false

Maybe these rumors about Rolle being untrue are actually untrue themselves.........if that made any sense at all..........

Re: Rolle rumors are false

you'd have to think the skins would have a contingency plan of some kind... It'd be stupid not to. (omg ending on a preposition... change to "not to have one" for the grammar nazis)

I doubt pasta would've just made it up... rolle's agent is the most likely, since competition would push up rolle's price which directly affects how much he'll make off the deal...
