Professional career

Buffalo Bills

On April 29, 2013, he signed with the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent.[2] On August 26, 2013, he was released by the Bills.[3]

New Orleans Saints

He was claimed via waivers by New Orleans Saints on August 27, 2013. On August 31, 2013, he was waived by the Saints. On September 1, 2013, he cleared waivers and was signed to the Saints' practice squad.

Rolle was waived from by the Saints on October 2, 2013.[4]

Green Bay Packers

Rolle was signed to the Green Bay Packers' practice squad on October 8, 2013.[5] On December 27, 2013, he was signed to the active roster.[6]

Houston Texans

On October 1, 2014, the Houston Texans signed Rolle off the Green Bay Packers' practice squad. He got his first and second interceptions on November 2, 2014 vs. the Philadelphia Eagles. Rolle kept his hot streak going by intercepting Titans backup quarterback Jake Locker's only pass attempt in Week 13. After the game, Rolle admitted he wasn't sure he would ever play defense for Houston, due to the fact he was signed for special teams. His start at nickel cornerback did not prove to be too big a task for Rolle, as he had 3 interceptions and 4 pass break-ups despite playing in only 6 games at that point in the 2014 season.[7] On November 19, 2015, Rolle was waived by the Texans.[8]

Baltimore Ravens

On November 20, 2015, Rolle was signed to the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad.[9] He was promoted to the active roster on December 15, 2015.[10]

Rolle suffered a torn Achilles during the offseason and missed the entire 2016 season.[11][12]

Arizona Cardinals

On May 9, 2017, Rolle was signed by the Arizona Cardinals.[13] He was waived on July 27, 2017.[14]

Buffalo Bills (II)

On August 12, 2017, Rolle signed with the Bills.[15] On August 29, 2017, he was released by the Bills.[16]

Hamilton Tiger-Cats

On August 19, 2018 Rolle signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League (CFL).[17] In his first season in the CFL Rolle played in 17 games contributing with 43 defensive tackles and two interceptions. In the 2019 season Rolle played in all 18 regular-season games for Hamilton with 11 starts at cornerback, registering 32 defensive tackles, five special teams tackles and seven pass knockdowns while leading the team and tying for third in the CFL with five interceptions. On January 31, 2020 Rolle and the Ti-Cats agreed to a two-year contract extension, preventing him from becoming a free agent in February.[18] The 2020 season was ultimately cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
