Giants safety Antrel Rolle is set to become an unrestricted free agent next month, but he hopes to return to New York in 2015 and beyond.

Rolle expressed his wishes this week in an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

I want to go back to the Giants for the fact I feel like I still have work to do,” Rolle said, via ProFootballTalk. “No matter how good or bad the season may have been for myself, you know, we’ve got one championship and I feel like that’s not enough. I feel like there’s more, obviously there’s more in the tank and more I need to provide as far as my services with that organization to try and help them win another title.

“I don’t like to leave anything undone and I feel like my time there is undone for whatever reason. I don’t know why I feel that way but it’s just the way I feel. If, God forbid, it doesn’t happen, then obviously I’m a man. I know that this league is a business and I don’t try to take anything personal. That for me, right now, that’s what my mindset is.”

The Arizona Cardinals made Rolle the eighth overall pick in 2005, and he spent his first five seasons with the team. In 2010, he went to the New York Giants in free agency, and he’s been there ever since. In 2011, Rolle was the leading tackler on the Giants team that would ultimately win Super Bowl XLVI over the Patriots.
