As we head into the the night, here is what Darnell Dockett tweeted about his new free-agent teammate, Antrel Rolle:
“I just talked to Antrell Rolle!! And I already know what’s about to happen, mann I’m speechless I’m going to Bed. I’m done with twitter BYE!”
Is Dockett’s speechless because he can’t believe the money Rolle is about to be offered? Because Rolle is going elsewhere? Because Rolle is coming back to the Cards for more money than Dockett is getting? It certainly doesn’t come across like he is ticked Rolle is leaving, and he complained about that via Twitter yesterday.
Maybe Dockett is just yanking everyone’s chain. But if it is true that Dockett already knows what Rolle’s free-agent destination is, it better be Arizona, because otherwise — since the Tweet came right around 9 p.m. Arizona time — there was some serious tampering going on that’s interesting, and anyone — including me — would be an idiot for thinking it’d be tampering because, after he was cut, he was free to talk to whomever.
I’ll say this: The two teams I heard in connection with Rolle (like two or three weeks ago) if he became free were the Giants and Dolphins. We’ll see how that pans out. Rolle already has reportedly gotten an offer from Miami (and the same report talks about the Dolphins chasing Dansby hard).
