Myron Rolle, the Florida State Seminoles safety turned Rhodes Scholar who’s trying to make it in the NFL, has signed with the Steelers.
Rolle, who revealed the signing on Twitter, would have to be viewed as a long shot to make the roster after twice trying and failing to make the Titans’ 53-man roster. But signing with the Steelers now gives him a chance to go through a full offseason conditioning program, learn the team’s defense and at least give himself a chance of making the team in training camp.
If Rolle doesn’t make it with the Steelers, there’s little doubt that he’s going to find success in life. He has a degree in medical anthropology and has said he’d like to become a doctor. But he’s going to give the NFL everything he has before moving on.
