Rookie Myron Rolle to miss mini-camp

If you haven’t heard about the Titans second sixth round draft pick, here’s a a summary of the story that shows that some athletes still do things the right way.

After his junior year at Florida State, Rolle opted not to enter the NFL draft, where he could have been a first round pick, and decided to take a year off of football.

The reason, Rolle was one of the 32 U.S. students to receive the Rhodes scholarship.  He used this opportunity to earn his masters at Oxford, foregoing the NFL draft.

Rolle will not be able to attend the camp due to finals at Oxford, which take place during the June minicamp.

  1. Totally fine with this. I wish him the best on the field and off. Him + Alterraun Verner = smartest secondary in football!
