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!
