Canes alum Antrel Rolle talks Hurricane Andrew, the late Sean Taylor, and the 2001 Canes

This was cool. And you should watch it.

Antrel Rolle is Miami Hurricanes royalty. He was a member of the 2001 Miami Hurricanes, and that’s good enough for me. Upon completing his time at The U, Rolle was the 8th overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals.

Rolle recently retired from the NFL after an 11 year career. And, on Tuesday, he joined Dan Le Batard and Bomani Jones on Highly Questionable for an interesting and engaging interview.

Rolle talked about several things, like being a lean to UF but flipping to The U, surviving Hurricane Andrew, and childhood friend Sean Taylor, who Rolle and the Canes affectionately called “Loco Taylor”.

“(Taylor) was the best teammate I ever had”, Rolle said in the interview on Highly Questionable. “It’s like we were attached at the hip. And we never said a word to each other on the field. We just knew what each other what do. We knew what we were thinking it. And we always played the same way.”

I’m sure you’re ready to watch this for yourself, so here’s the video. Antrel’s interview starts at the 7:22 mark of the video below.

I love it. So great.
