NFC South legends to appear in N.Y.
By Pat Yasinskas
The NFL just announced that one alumni representative from each team will take part in Wednesday’s pregame celebration at Rockefeller Center.
They’ll help the winner for each team unveil their design in the inaugural NFL Fan Flag Challenge. The show will start at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC and NFL Network and will lead into the season’s opening game between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants.
Looks like the NFL did pretty well in its recruiting efforts of former NFC South players. Two of the best tight ends in division history will represent the Falcons and Panthers. Alge Crumpler will be there for Atlanta and Wesley Walls for Carolina.
Willie Roaf will represent the Saints and I have a quarter that says he wears his Hall of Fame jacket, which he should.
Finally, Derrick Brooks, who might be the best player in division history (Drew Brees has at least closed the gap) will represent Tampa Bay.
