On NFL Network’s ‘Good Morning Football,’ former New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle announced his retirement.

Antrel Rolle played with the New York Giants from 2010-2014 and played last season with the Chicago Bears. There were reports that Rolle and the Giants would have a reunion after the Bears released Rolle in May, but it didn’t come to fruition.

“I’m at total peace. Like I said, go out and you’re 33-years-old and you’re 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,” Rolle said.

Rolle played a pivotal role in the Giants 2011 Super Bowl season as he played safety and nickel corner. That season he led the Giants with 96 tackles.

During his 11 year career, Rolle made the Pro Bowl three times. Rolle finishes career with 834 total tackles, 26 interceptions, eight forced fumbles, four sacks, and scored four defensive touchdowns.
