what is he supposed to say?

"Hi I'm Myron Rolle and I'm a failure, and have no idea why I'm trying out for the NFL, I'm going to fail anyway"?

set your goals and aim high. nothing wrong with that.

Aspire to inspire, set to be great. There's nothing wrong with how he highly he regards himself, and he deserves a chance.

Wow. The complaining about the "Antonio Brown 1st Down" thing was one thing, but now immediately elevating Rolle to "Smoketonio" level of arrogance because of one little sentence on his website that says "future NFL star"? Some people around here are just ridiculous.

Sounds like profiling to me. Some people are just ridiculous and need to be quiet more times than not.

Pro Days and Combine don't really prove much of anything. Brown ran a 4.57.

Can't hurt to have a look at him. He was a very good safety in college, he may just be a diamond in the rough.

True but his knock on him by most scouts was that he lacked speed minus the whole lack of interest in football.

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt though. He should be an upgrade over Will Allen at backup so as long as we're moving in the right direction, I can't complain much.

It wasn't his interest in football that you brought up

He may make it off the Practice squad, we'll just have to wait and see. Is the Practice squad where he's at now?

Speed helps at any position, but brains definitely helps at safety. Why not give him a shot?
