07:20 AM ET 07.01 | Even if the votes aren't there for him, Antrel Rolle still considers himself to be a Pro Bowler. With the Giants too often a man down at cornerback, Rolle has been asked -- actually told -- that for the greater good of the defense, he must spend far too much time playing nickel cornerback, perhaps the most demanding spot in the entire secondary. Rolle can do it, but not at the heightened level he reaches when allowed to roam at deep safety. "We always shoot for that each and every year. We always shoot for me to play the safety role and stay at the safety role but it's never happened, unfortunately," Rolle said. "At one point in time I would get frustrated. ... It's a part of growing up, a part of being professional."

Too bad he can't play two positions at once. It would be an improvement.

I'm not free, but I'm reasonably priced.

I have expensive tastes but I can still be a cheap date if I'm expected to put out.
