So, not only is @PFF_Mike on the new season of The Bachelorette, but apparently so are former NFL players Clay Harbor and Colton Underwood. https://t.co/jwlfttOREL

Harbor most recently played for the New Orleans Saints during the 2017 preseason but was placed on injured reserve on Aug. 27 and didn't appear in a regular-season game. He played with four different teams over seven seasons from 2010-16, winning a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots in 2016. 

Underwood has spent time on the practice squads for the San Diego Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles and Oakland Raiders from 2014-16. He has never played in a regular-season NFL game. 

The new season of The Bachelorette premieres on May 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
