Even before he got to the NFL, we knew Rolle was destined for great things that went beyond the football field. After all, he was a Rhodes scholar and studied at Oxford, earning a Master’s in Medical Anthropology, doing so the same year the Titans took him in the 6th round of the draft.
Rolle said goodbye to the NFL forever in 2013, returning to Florida State to enroll in the school’s College of Medicine.
He got his medical degree in 2017 and moved on to a neuroscience residency at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. If you didn’t know, both are kind of a big deal in the medical community. Once he finishes his residency, odds are that Rolle will become a famous neurosurgeon and we’ll all forget that he was actually a pretty good football player once upon a time.
