It's no secret the Bears are in desperate need of help along the defensive line and at safety, which means we'll scrutinize players at those positions who may become available.
Take Antrel Rolle, for example.
The Cardinals safety is in the final year of a rookie contract that will pay him a base salary of $8.11 million. He's due a $4 million roster bonus next week. Because the Cardinals' Adrian Wilson is already the NFL's highest paid safety, Darren Urban of azcardinals.com writes that Rolle could soon be released.
Might he be a fit for the Bears? As everybody knows, Lovie Smith's defense is in desperate need of a free safety, which is what Rolle has played for the Cardinals.
Truth be told, Rolle hasn't been all the Cardinals hoped he would be when they made him the eighth overall pick in the 2005 draft, but he might become an option for the Bears.
