Former FSU Safety Rolle makes donation to flood victims

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.”
