Titans' Rolle gives money for flood aid
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)
Rhodes scholar and Titans rookie Myron Rolle hasn't signed his NFL contract yet. That isn't stopping him from making donations to help Tennessee flood victims.
Rolle presented a pair of $1,000 donations Tuesday to the Tennessee Emergency Response Fund and the Metro Nashville Disaster Response Fund. The money came from the foundation he started in January 2009 after playing his final game at Florida State and before heading to England for his studies.
The safety lasted until the final pick of the sixth round of the NFL Draft. He says he wants to help his new town.
Rolle says he's "not rich'' and he is "not crazy wealthy.'' He says ``it's very pertinent to help in a community'' and that "this is my first way of doing so.''
