Antrel Rolle says sign from God led him to Chicago Bears

A sign from God is the reason Antrel Rolle is a member of the Chicago Bears now.

The ex-Giants safety signed a three-year deal with the Bears late Wednesday night. Shortly before inking his contract, he delivered an Instagram post discussing his sign from God.

“I asked God for a sign and this is what I woke up to at 4:33am Monday morning!! What does this mean???? I DONT KNOW . . . let’s see!! #staytuned,” he said on Instagram.

Along with the post was a photo of an Orbitz ad that highlighted flights to Chicago.

He expanded on his social media post during an appearance on WFAN.

"I just asked God. It was Sunday night before I was going to sleep (and) I just asked him, 'God, I pray that you just give me a level head. I pray that you just give me a sign to lead me in the right direction, and I'll follow your lead.'

"It was Monday morning at 4:33 a.m. I never wake up in the middle of the night, and it was 4:33 Monday morning, and I got an email to my phone. And the email said, 'Orbitz alert: flights to Chicago, discount fair.' And I'm like, 'wow,' you know what I mean?"

Rolle, 32, played five seasons with the Giants, but the franchise had little interest in bringing him back this offseason. Rolle visited the Chicago Bears at the start of free agency Tuesday and signed his contract a day later.

He was one of the Giants’ most vocal leaders during his time in East Rutherford.
