Myron Rolle is spending his money in a really, really good way

Myron Rolle(notes), the rookie Tennessee Titans safety who was supposedly a draft risk because of his ability to think, is already paying some dividends in the Nashville community.

Rolle made a couple of $1,000 donations to help with area flood relief.

Now, two grand might not seem like a huge donation, and compared with the scope of Nashville's problems, maybe it isn't. Keep in mind, though, that Rolle isn't going to be getting Sam Bradford(notes) money. He was a sixth-round draft pick, so yes, compared to most of us, he'll be living pretty comfortably, but he doesn't have "make it rain every night" money. He's not moving into Tom Brady's(notes) neighborhood anytime soon.

In fact, Rolle hasn't even signed a contract yet, so at the moment, he hasn't made a dime as a professional football player.

Rolle says it's just his first way of helping out, and I don't doubt that a bit.
