NEW YORK (WFAN) — The Giants have won three in a row, and have looked good doing so.

In what has been a very disappointing season for Big Blue, we’re starting to see an inkling of what next year’s team could look like. Young players are starting to make their mark, key pieces will return from injury and the new offense will no longer be in transition mode.

Defensive captain Antrel Rolle wants to be a part of it and get his team back to the playoffs, but the soon-to-be free agent admits that he hasn’t talked to the Giants about a new contract.

“To be honest with you, that’s not anything that we’ve discussed at all,” Rolle told WFAN co-hosts Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts during his weekly spot on Tuesday. “Knowing how the Giants do things, that’s not really something that they do throughout the course of the season. Like I said, if it was up to me, I would be here.

“But we all know it’s not up to me. It’s up to the front office. I’m hoping that we can come to an agreement where I can retire a Giant, and more importantly, try to help this team win another Super Bowl before my tenure’s up.”

Roberts asked the 32-year-old if he’d accept less money in free agency to return to the Giants, but the safety was tight-lipped in his response.

“Listen, you know I don’t speak contract talk until that time comes,” Rolle said. “Good try, though. I salute you for trying!”

The former first-round pick has played in all 15 games for the Giants this season. He’s recorded 79 combined tackles, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and three interceptions.
