Rolle shows appreciation for career in NFL

Posted Apr 21, 2014

Antrel Rolle took to Instagram to reflect on what it means to begin his 10th NFL season

Antrel Rolle is happy.

The Giants safety is back in his domain as he and his teammates reported today for the start of offseason workouts. And now that his 10th NFL season is underway, Rolle is taking nothing for granted and sent out a message on Instagram with a montage set to the tune of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy.”

Here is what Rolle had to say:

“I arrived in NJ at midnight awaiting this moment. The moment of returning to my home, my workplace, my domain! I must say this feeling never gets old. Believe me it gets harder and harder every year knowing that when this time comes you have to abandon your family, significant other, and friends. But everything great comes with a sacrifice. This is my passion and my love. I am always humbled and more importantly extremely blessed to be approaching moments like these after 9 NFL Seasons. This will be my 10 year and it's seems like yesterday I was just walking the stage of NY after hearing my name called as the 8th overall pick in the first round going to the AZ Cardinals. I am truly blessed. You must have all faith in God to be where I am. This is extremely hard to do but very easy to accomplish with the right team around you and with your faith in God. So I am here to say that I never ever take moments like these for granted. I love it each and everyday. #fortunate #blessings #grindmode #mycraft #mylove #mypassion”
