Myron Rolle was among 15 players cut by the Tennessee Titans on Saturday.
Rolle, who lived in Galloway Township most of his childhood, took a different path to the NFL than most other players. After leaving Florida State University, he studied at Oxford University on Rhodes Scholarship, taking a year off from football.
In 2010, the Titans drafted him with the final pick of the sixth round. Rolle spent last season on the practice squad with Tennessee.
The news of Rolle's cut didn't sit well with many Tennessee fans and many of them voices their displeasure on Twitter.
