Rolando Cantu (born February 25, 1981) is a former Mexican football offensive guard who played for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League. He was the first Mexican-born non-kicker and also the first Mexican-born player not to attend a college in the United States and play in the NFL.

Professional career[edit]

Cantu was raised in Monterrey, Mexico, and was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Arizona Cardinals through the NFL's International Practice Squad Program in 2004. He mostly spent time in the Cardinal's practice squad, before being promoted to the active roster in 2005 and making one game appearance against the Indianapolis Colts. A knee injury forced him to retire in 2006, after being placed on the injured reserve list.[1]

Personal life[edit]

In 2007, he was named as the Arizona Cardinals manager of international business ventures.
