Report: Eagles draft pick Rolle declined car offer while at Ohio State

June 4 CSN Philly:

One Ohio State football player didn’t want a free car from a booster in violation of NCAA rules.  After all, why would Brian Rolle accept a car when he already had a 2002 Jetta?  Rolle, the Ohio State linebacker drafted in the sixth round in April by the Eagles, said in a radio interview he was offered a new car in 2009. But Rolle said no, unlike some of his teammates, who reportedly violated NCAA rules by accepting merchandise and services, leading to the demise of head coach Jim Tressel.
