Antrel Rolle spent five seasons with the New York Giants, where he won a Super Bowl and provided many memorable interviews during his weekly appearance on WFAN. Rolle, who signed with the Bears on Thursday, certainly made sure his final WFAN spot was one people will be talking about.
During his appearance with Joe and Evan, Rolle talked about praying to God for a sign toward his impending free agent decision. A couple hours later he was awakened by an email from Orbitz at 4:33 a.m. on Monday morning offering discount flights to Chicago. Apparently that was enough of a sign to decide on the Bears.
“I’m like, ‘Wow,’” Rolle said. “You know what I mean? And it just hit (me). I never question God’s plan for me, man.”
Naturally Rolle put a picture of the email on Instagram.
The 32-year-old veteran eventually signed a three-year deal with the Bear worth $11.25 million, $5 million guaranteed. There no word, as of yet, on whether or not Orbitz will sign him up for an endorsement deal.
