BATON ROUGE – Twenty-seven former LSU players are headed to the NFL Playoffs, which begin this weekend with six Super Wildcard games.

LSU’s list of playoff participants includes 24 players on active rosters and three on injured reserve. LSU has at least one player on the roster of 13 of the 14 playoff teams, including four on the NFC North Champions Minnesota Vikings. The only team without LSU representation is the Philadelphia Eagles.

All 24 former Tigers on active rosters will be in action this weekend for the opening round of the playoffs.

Sunday’s matchup between the Bills and Dolphins in Buffalo will feature the Ferguson brothers – Reid (Bills) and Blake (Dolphins) – who are long snappers for their respective teams. The Ferguson brothers were LSU long snappers for eight consecutive years from 2012-2019 with Blake winning a national title with the Tigers as a senior in 2019.

Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and All-America Ja’Marr Chase will look to lead the Bengals to another Super Bowl when Cincinnati hosts Patrick Queen and the Baltimore Ravens at 7:15 p.m. on Sunday.

Why should you get any money? Or why is LSU entitled to any money from people who graduated from LSU? Honey Badger who was dismissed from the school has donated money to the school. Other have too.

Agree with your point, but Mathieu was dismissed from the team, not the school. He took off a semester for rehab then went back for another semester before entering the draft. I think he was busted for possession sometime after his return, but left the school on his own terms. That was quite some time ago, though, so I might be remembering that wrong?

Awesome to see so many former Tigers succeeding in the league. And to the Tigers that didn't make the play-offs, keep on training for next year.

I thought Pete Carroll had a hate-boner for LSU.

He did draft some of our guys. However, they all did not make it. Thardold Simon was a recent high draft that did not pan out.
