Rutgers: Making a Statement In the NFL Playoffs

Ron GhilinoContributor IJanuary 9, 2009

It wasn't too long ago that it was a novelty for a former Rutgers player to be on the roster of a team in the NFL.

They've come a long way baby.

Currently, there are 10 former Scarlet Knights taking the field this postseason. They are:


-Baltimore Ravens (RB Ray Rice)

-Carolina Panthers (DT's Gary Gibson and J'Vonne Parker)

-Indianapolis Colts (LB Gary Brackett and DT Eric Foster)

-Miami Dolphins (CB Nate Jones and OL Pedro Sosa)

-Giants (C Shaun O'Hara)

-Philadelphia Eagles (TE L.J. Smith)

-Pittsburgh Steelers (OL Darnell Stapleton)

You've got to believe that this trend will continue.


Good luck men!
