NFL's Myron Rolle Chooses Scholarship over Sponsorship

Hosted by

After star quarterback Michel Vick's prison term for dog fighting, the National Football League is overdue for image enhancement. So, consider Michael Rolle, who in less than three years at Florida State, earned a 3.75 grade-point average and All-America honors as a defensive back. In delaying entry into the NFL to spend a year as a Rhodes scholar at Oxford, it's estimated he gave up $8 million. But he's already embarked on "a one-man marketing experiment" according to Lee Hawkins of the Wall Street Journal.
