Rolle, a former Rhodes Scholar and sixth-round pick of the Titans in 2010, planned on becoming a neurosurgeon once his football career was over. That time could be now. He's too slow and not athletic enough to play in the NFL. Mon, Aug 27, 2012 09:57:00 AM

Steelers signed S Myron Rolle to a reserve/future contract.

Rolle spent last year out of football after being waived at the Titans' final cuts. While Rolle certainly has the smarts to play in the NFL, he lacks the athleticism and straight-line speed. He'll struggle to make the 2012 roster.

Titans waive S Myron Rolle.

Rolle got a big name for sitting out the entire 2009 season while pursuing a Rhodes Scholar degree, but safeties that run 4.76 forties don't last long in the NFL. He spent 2010 on the practice squad and may be headed back there.

Titans S Myron Rolle will join former President Bill Clinton on a trip to the Congo to participate in a Clinton Global Initiative Lead program to aid displaced refugees.

The two men struck up a friendship two years back when Rolle was honored as a Rhodes Scholar. The former Florida State star has since earned his master's in medical anthropology at Oxford University. His goal is to be a neurosurgeon when his football career is over. Rolle has been working out this offseason with noted speed expert Tom Shaw at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando.

Titans signed S Myron Rolle, RB Herb Donaldson, OG Ryan Durand, OT Jeff Hansen, DL Pannel Egboh, and TE Riar Geer to reserve/future contracts.

Rhodes Scholar Rolle spent the season on the Titans' practice squad after passing through waivers in early September. Donaldson was once considered a candidate for short-yardage duties in New Orleans. He spent the 2010 training camp with the Cowboys.

Titans signed S Myron Rolle to their practice squad.

Rolle passes through waivers, confirming the limited interest in the Rhodes Scholar around the league. Other members of the Titans' practice squad include C Kevin Matthews, WR Dominique Edison, CB Pete Ittersagen, LB Patrick Trahan and DE Hall Davis. If LeGarrette Blount clears waivers, he'll be back on the practice squad as well.

Titans waived S Myron Rolle.

It will be interesting to see if the Rhodes Scholar clears waivers. He was originally projected as an early-round pick before turning forty times in the 4.6 - 4.8 range at the Combine. We're betting he goes unclaimed.

Titans agreed to terms with sixth-round S Myron Rolle on a four-year contract.

Rolle recently returned from Oxford, where he was finishing up finals. The No. 207 overall pick in April, Rolle has an uphill climb to make the roster in Tennessee, which has one of the deepest safety situations in the league.

Titans rookie Myron Rolle has to return to Oxford University on June 7-10 to take finals.

This hurts -- the Titans have a minicamp the same weekend. As a late sixth-round pick coming off a draft season that exposed him as lacking NFL-caliber tools, Rolle needs every opportunity he can get to impress the coaching staff.

Titans selected Florida State S Myron Rolle with the No. 207 overall pick in the NFL draft.

The Rhodes Scholar falls to the final pick in the sixth round after spending the 2009 season studying to be a neurosurgeon at Oxford University. While we're sure that Jeff Fisher will love his intelligence and attitude, Rolle's lack of speed limits him to a backup/special teams role in the NFL. He had just one pick in his Seminoles career.

Florida State S Myron Rolle reportedly improved his forty time to 4.54 during his personal Pro Day on Wednesday.

Rolle ran 4.76 at the Combine. He also had a strong 6.47-second time in the three-cone drill. We've got a feeling that the National Football Post is getting Rolle's measurements from his agent, so take them with a grain of salt.

The master list of forty times distributed to all 32 teams from the Combine reportedly has Myron Rolle's forty time at 4.76.

Rolle was reportedly running sub-4.5s at Tom Shaw's performance institute prior to Indianapolis, so the slow time was surprising. It will likely also prevent Rolle from being drafted before round four. Teams will view him only as a backup and special teamer, rather than a future starter.

Florida State S Myron Rolle ran an unofficial forty time of 4.69 Tuesday at the NFL Combine.

This will hurt Rolle's chances of being drafted on day two (rounds two and three), though we suspect some team is still going to fall in love with his smarts and attitude. Rolle, though, had just one INT in his college career.

During Combine interviews this week, a Bucs employee asked Rhodes Scholar Myron Rolle "what it felt like to desert his team this season."

"I hadn't heard that one before," Rolle said. "My initial reaction was a bit of confusion. I was more bothered by the question because if anyone knew my involvement with my teammates, how much they care about me and how much I care about them." So the Bucs official tried to paint a Rhodes Scholarship in a negative light? This is what happens when the player is smarter and more mature than the football exec.

Jaguars GM Gene Smith was among those impressed by Florida State S Myron Rolle during the Senior Bowl practice week.

Rolle spent 2009 studying to be a neurosurgeon at Oxford, but clearly stayed in shape. "He didn’t look like a player that is one year removed from football," Smith sad. "He helped himself. It’s obvious he had been training." The Jags need help at both safety positions. Rolle is a projected top-90 pick.
