Badgers in the NFL

NFL Action Shot

Wisconsin currently boasts 34 players on NFL rosters, and a total of 28 former Badgers have seen action this season.

A total of 40 UW products earned roster spots for NFL training camps this season.

As the NFL prepares for Championship Weekend, seven former Badgers are still vying for a chance to compete in Super Bowl XLIX. They include Jonathan Casillas (New England), David Gilreath (Seattle), O’Brien Schofield (Seattle), Mike Taylor (Seattle), Scott Tolzien (Green Bay), James White (New England) and Russell Wilson (Seattle).

Among the highlights of Wild Card Weekend:
• Russell Wilson completed 15-of-22 passes for 268 yards and three TDs in Seattle’s 31-17 win over Carolina. His passer rating of 149.2 was his best this season. The Seahawks now host Green Bay in the conference title game on Sunday at 2 p.m. on FOX.

• Despite the Ravens’ 35-31 loss to the Patriots, TE Owen Daniels stood out, garnering four receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown.
