Titans cut scholarly rookie Myron Rolle

Bruce Feldman of ESPN is a college football analyst, rarely dabbling in NFL matters. But Feldman was first to report Saturday that the Titans have waived safety Myron Rolle.  Rolle, a high-profile college player, was a sixth-round pick in April’s draft.

Rolle’s profile reached its height when he took an entire year off from football to study at Oxford University.  He returned for 2010, ran a forty time in the mid-4.7s after a college career that produced just one interception in three seasons, and fell to the 207th overall pick.
Rolle might get a look on Tennessee’s practice squad.  Otherwise, we’re confident he has job opportunities outside of football.
Other Titans cuts, per John Glennon of the Nashville Tennessean: defensive end Eric Bakhtiari and running back Alvin Pearman.  The Tennessean‘s Jim Wyatt adds to the list rookie defensive end Nick Howell, receiver Paul Williams, cornerback Tye Hill, offensive tackle Michael Toudouze, defensive tackle Joe Joseph, and tight end Steve Pfahler.

    I thought this guy was going to be good. Guess if is last name wasn’t Rolle then I’d understand.

    I guess becoming a scholar doesn’t help in the NFL

    I’m pretty sure he will have no problem finding a job unlike 99% of the other THUGS in this league…

    I agree with what brownsfn19 said. At least Myron still has A FUTURE unlike so many other washed up NFL players like Marvin Harrison who go on to kill people and deal drugs.

    I wouldn’t count Myron out yet, while things are probably not going as anticipated, he has options. Graciously accepting a Practice Squad spot is a smart move. Live to play another day. I think we (or at least I) expected too much too soon and believe he’ll get it done, just not today. I have this gut feeling that he’ll be on my Gatorade bottle in a couple of years.
