A mind is a terrible thing to waste, and former Florida State safety Myron Rolle refuses to waste his.
After a successful campaign at Florida State and two seasons in the NFL, Rolle has apparently given up the football life at age 26 and is currently waiting to hear about acceptances to medical school, according to Lost Letterman.
“Within 10 days or so I should hear back from a few,” Rolle told Lost Letterman on Monday. “I don’t know where I’ll be, but I know I’m looking for schools with good neurosurgery programs in places where I want to live.”
Yes, the former Seminole plans to become a brain surgeon.
Rolle was the number one high school prospect in the country in the class of 2006 and opted to accept a Rhodes Scholarship to study at Oxford University instead of declaring for the 2009 NFL draft. Right now Rolle is in Philadelphia, four weeks into an administrative fellowship at a managed care organization called AmeriHealth Caritas.
The safety’s combination of brains and brawn was

The 2013 NFL Draft is one of the more confusing drafts of recent memory. At this point the top five is still a huge question mark. Typically at this point in time we know where most teams in the top five will go or at least where they are looking and sometimes we have a good idea what is going to happen in the top 10. That’s not the case this year. Not being able to accurately...

In case you missed it, my podcast co-host David Todd had the Greg Cosell on his ESPN 970 radio show on Monday. It is a very good interview as Cosell talks linebackers, wide receivers, safeties and much, much more related to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the upcoming draft. In addition to the interview, Cosell also released his first round mock draft on Monday and has the Steelers taking...

When I initially completed my third mock draft, I had fully accepted that the Pittsburgh Steelers would not match the offer sheet from New England for Emmanuel Sanders and that they would have acquired an additional third round pick. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Retaining Sanders changed the entire complexion of my mock draft, and I had to retool the direction...
I admit that I am like most fans of professional football in that I get excited for the release of the upcoming season’s schedule but for different reasons perhaps.
For me, it signals that we are extremely close to the NFL Draft and that the season itself is drawing nearer as well. What I don’t understand is why so many fans and experts enjoy getting caught up in their teams’...
Yesterday in the Steel City, Pittsburgh Steelers’ General Manager Kevin Colbert and Head Coach Mike Tomlin sat down for their annual ‘pre-draft press conference’ which is always as entertaining as watching the grounds’ crew fill in muddy patches on Heinz Field.
These pressers are very standard and by nature are not going to divulge much in the way of information. None of...
The upcoming NFL Draft will impact every team in the league,
but Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert told reporters during
today’s press conference that the future of several veterans will be impacted
by the selections the club makes this weekend. Specifically, who the Steelers
do or do not draft could impact the team’s willingness to sign free agents
Quite a few in the fanbase were hoping that the Pittsburgh Steelers would sign inside linebacker Rolando McClain after he was waived from the Oakland Raiders earlier this month. I insisted, that despite head coach Mike Tomlin once having high praise for the Alabama product, that the Steelers weren't likely to touch him, regardless of the price.
McClain, who I pointed out has...

We also look back at the way the team handled all of their restricted free agents this offseason.

The 2013 NFL Draft is approaching faster than James Harrison can say Whodey!!! With the draft so close we should have at least a general idea of who the Pittsburgh Steelers might draft with their first round pick, but even the experts can’t agree. We searched through many different sites and articles to find the [...]
The Steelers are looking for a leader, and plenty are available in this year's crop of linebacker prospects.
With just days to go until the NFL Draft begins, the Steelers are one of many teams with veteran quarterbacks facing the age old dilemma of whether to consider drafting the quarterback of the future now and letting him develop or delaying the inevitable for one more season.
It’s unknown if Pittsburgh will select a gunslinger in this year’s draft, but Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh...
