Wildcats In the NFL



With the signings of Micah Johnson and Tim Masthay, the number of former Wildcats in the NFL continues to swell. Below is a table of all the current Cats that are working for the shield:


Player Team Position
Keenan Burton St. Louis Rams WR
John Conner NY Jets FB
Jeremy Jarmon Washington Redskins DE
Micah Johnson Miami Dolphins LB
Steve Johnson Buffalo Bills WR
Braxton Kelley Denver Broncos LB
Trevard Lindley Philadelphia Eagles CB
Tim Masthay Green Bay Packers Punter
Corey Peters Atlanta Falcons DT
Myron Pryor New England Patriots DT
Alfonso Smith Arizona Cardinals RB
Jacob Tamme Indianapolis Colts TE
Garry Williams Carolina Panthers OT
Wesley Woodyard Denver Broncos LB


Pretty nice list. Also, in case you missed it, ESPN had a pretty good snapshot of John Conner (who also has some purty fans). The money quote comes, of course, from head coach Rex Ryan:

“Whew, he smoked him,” Ryan said. “This kid’s got a talent for running through people.”

Yaup. Sounds like our guy. Happy Labor Day, everybody.
