Nine former Vols still in NFL playoffs

Nine former Vols are on the eight NFL rosters still involved in the playoffs.

Former Tennessee star Jerod Mayo will captain the Patriots' defense this weekend against the Jets.

Five of the eight teams still vying for the Super Bowl have at least one former Vol on the roster, and only one game — Seattle at Chicago — won’t feature one.

The Green Bay Packers lead the way with three former Tennessee players, though former first-round defensive tackle pick Justin Harrell is injured.

At least one former Vol is on the current active roster of all four AFC teams still in the playoffs.
