Week 17 had some tough breaks for some former Hogs. The Baltimore Ravens with Alex Collins and Ryan Mallett were eliminated on the final weekend. The Los Angeles Chargers and an injured Hunter Henry and Darius Philon also missed out with a chance in Week 17.
Now with the matchups set there are four former Hogs on active rosters of playoff teams. There are a handful of guys on the reserve lists or practice squads like Brandon Allen, Mitchell Loewen, and Cody Hollister, but these are the players eligible to see some postseason action.
Jarius Wright - The Vikings have a first round bye so won’t play this weekend. Wright has been a reserve receiver for them all season, catching 18 passes and two touchdowns.
New England Patriots
Trey Flowers - Flowers has started all 14 games he’s played this year and has 67 total tackles. He’s also gotten 6.5 sacks and forced two fumbles on the year. He’s been an important part of their defense all year.
Deatrich Wise Jr. - Wise has been a nice surprise all season. He has three starts on the year, where he has five sacks and 26 total tackles.
New Orleans Saints
Jonathan Williams - J-Will spent half of the year on the Broncos practice squad but has been on the Saints roster for the second half of the year. He’s been inactive his entire time with the Saints but could feature should an injury arise.
