The Texas A&M football team has always been a program that draws in some of the best talent in college football. Head Coach Jimbo Fisher’s 2022 class is the best example of this, on track to become the greatest recruiting class in college football history. And generally speaking, this type of thing translates to the next level.
For this reason, the Aggies have 30 players in the NFL which, in itself, is not the most impressive number. That said, the Texas A&M football team holds a cumulative salary of over $589,000,000, according to Spotrac.
And some of these highly-skilled former Aggies will be competing for the honor of reaching a Super Bowl on Sunday. Here are the four guys in that category.
These four Texas A&M football players are still competing for a Super Bowl
Trayveon Williams: I’m starting with Trayveon Williams because, in all honesty, he has the slimmest chance of making an impact for his team. In three years in the league, Williams has only rushed for 208 yards, not yet reaching the endzone. Still, there’s something to be said about the fact that he’s still on a roster.
His Bengals team will be competing against the Kansas City Chiefs in a game that will be headlined by Patrick Mahomes and Joe Burrow. Barring any injuries, we may not see much of Williams in this one.
Armani Watts: Armani Watts was never the highest-profile player coming out of college. He was a really strong safety at A&M and thus far, he has carved out a solid role for himself at the next level. He’ll have a slightly better opportunity to make an impact in the AFC Championship Game.
Watts plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, who will be facing off against Williams’s Bengals today. Watts has modest stats in the 2021-22 season but has managed to consistently make an impact for his team.
Bobby Brown: Much like Trayveon Williams, Bobby Brown’s impact in this game will likely be minimal. The former Texas A&M football player and current Los Angeles Rams rookie has recorded — drumroll, please — one assisted tackle this season. This isn’t any indication of his talent, though. He is simply a young player on a team that wants to win a Super Bowl.
The Rams will take on the 49ers in a game that, in my opinion, could result in a blowout win for the Aggies in this equation. This would send Brown to his first Super Bowl, while his A&M alum-teammate will be returning.
Von Miller: Let’s just be honest here — without Von Miller, there’s no sense in writing this article. The Rams’ veteran linebacker remains as one of the most impactful players in the league at age 32, recording 9.5 sacks and a forced fumble in the 2021 season thus far.
The former Super Bowl MVP will look to have another dominating late-playoff performance against the San Francisco 49ers.
