Florida State football is, of course, over for the season. But by no means does that mean that the Seminoles are done playing ball— and some are about to suit up for the biggest game in the world.
Actually, four ’Noles will compete in Super Bowl LII, and all of them are significant contributors to the Philadelphia Eagles’ defense. The FSU Eagles start up front, with fourth-year defender Tim Jernigan, a starter at the DT spot. Behind him is starting linebacker Nigel Bradham, a six-year pro out of Florida State.
Two more ’Noles spark the Philly secondary. Cornerback Ronald Darby helped lead FSU to its 2013 national title, along with Jernigan, and he’ll roam the secondary alongside Patrick Robinson. Robinson, who registered a pick-six against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game, is the elder statesmen of the Seminoles playing for the Eagles (an eight-year pro) and serves as Philly’s nickel back.
The Eagles will take on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on February 4.
