No matter who wins in this weekend’s NFL playoffs and makes it to the Super Bowl and wins that, the Louisville Cardinals will have a player that gets a Super Bowl ring this year. Why? Because of the final four teams remaining, there is a former Card on each team! Here is the rundown of who plays on which team…
Here is how the former Cards performed in the NFL this week. Keep in mind that these are just the skill players. Bilal Powell had a great performance for the New York Jets and Josh Bellamy made his NFL debut with the Kansas City Chiefs!
Here is a look at how some former Cards performed in the NFL in Week 11! Keep in mind, not all UofL players in the NFL are at skill positions.
Here is how the former Cards did in Week 2 of this NFL season…
Here are some stats from former UofL Cardinals in the NFL in week 1!
The Countdown to Kickoff is now at 10 days! Here is former UofL Wide Receiver Arnold Jackson!
Arnold Jackson: (1996-2000)
Career Stats: 44 games played, 300 receptions, 3,670 yards (12.2 avg), 31 TDs, Long of 86 yards
Jackson holds the record at UofL for most receiving yards with his 3,670 yards. The next closest is Harry Douglas, and he isn’t that close with 2,924 yards! Arnold Jackson was an explosive player, and also a great punt returner. Anytime he touched the ball, there was excitement because the fans knew a TD was very possible!
He also holds the UofL record for most receptions with 300. The next closest is Ibn Green with 217!
