Titans rookie donates to Tenn. flood victims

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.”
