Samari Rolle sounds likely to retire

The Ravens were hoping cornerback Samari Rolle could return to the team when they placed him on the physically unable to perform list following neck surgery.

In recent days, it’s become clear that Rolle’s chances of playing in 2009 are between slim and none, no matter how many big pass plays Baltimore’s suddenly soft secondary is giving up.

Rolle admits that his career is likely over.

“I’m going to sit down with my family and listen to what my doctors
have to say,” said Rolle this week.  “I’ve had two neck
surgeries and at my age, unless they show me something scientifically
that says I can’t hurt myself again, then I’m done.”

Rolle, who is currently wearing a neck brace as part of his rehabilitation from surgery, says he’ll get away from the game for 6-12 months and then decide what he’s going to do. 

Rolle rejenuvated his career when he joined the Ravens in 2005 after seven years with the Titans.  He was first-team All-Pro in 2000.

    You guys taking smack about this guy are real tools. First and this isn’t well know but the guy has Epilepsy, was having seizures for two years while playing in the NFL before he knew what was really going on. He didn’t quite because of that but fought it and got it under control and still played in the NFL. Now he has had 2 neck surgeries and thanks its time to retire, and he gets comments like that. This guy is a hero to my 9 year old step son who has Epilepsy, good thing he isn’t as immature as y’all.
