Tennessee Titans rookie safety Myron Rolle hasn’t yet signed his first NFL contract. And as a sixth-round draft pick, he’s not going to become fabulously wealthy even when he does start collecting NFL paychecks.
But that’s not stopping Rolle from offering some financial assistance to some people who can use it.
Rolle presented two $1,000 donations Tuesday to the Tennessee Emergency Response Fund and the Metro Nashville Disaster Response Fund.
Rolle noted that he’s “not crazy wealthy,” but added, “it’s very pertinent to help in a community” and that “this is my first way of doing so.”
The money came from the foundation Rolle started in January 2009 after leaving the Florida State football team to become a Rhodes Scholar.
