Top 50 free agents
Rolle was the Cardinals' first-round pick, the eighth selection overall, out of Miami in 2005. He began his pro career as a cornerback but had most of his success after being switched to safety in 2008.
In 68 regular-season games, 59 as a starter, Rolle had 12 interceptions, three forced fumbles and 1.5 sacks. In six playoff games, Rolle had one interception and one fumble recovery.
In addition, Arizona tendered one-year qualifying contract offers to five players -- wide receiver Steve Breaston, guard Deuce Lutui, center Lyle Sendlein, tight end Ben Patrick and nose tackle Gabe Watson.
Breaston received a first-round tender, which means that if another team makes an offer that the Cardinals decide not to match, they would receive a first-round draft pick as compensation. The other four players received second-round tenders, which gives Arizona the option of matching any offer or receiving a second-round draft pick from that team as compensation.
The two-time NFC West champion Cardinals had a number of personnel issues to resolve as free agency approached. Starting left tackle Mike Gandy is a free agent, and Matt Leinart is the lone quarterback under contract.
The Cardinals historically haven't gone for a big name in free agency, opting instead to spread around their money.
