NFL Rebels Update: Week 7 – Ole Miss Athletics – Hotty Toddy

OXFORD, Miss. – Here at, we are proud to update Rebel fans on the status of our former players who lace up their cleats on Sundays in the NFL. The Ole Miss football program continues to shine in the professional league with 30 former Rebels on NFL rosters (practice squads included), including star wideouts A.J. Brown, D.K. Metcalf and Elijah Moore.
This past week, wide receiver A.J. Brown recorded 137 receiving yards, his fifth straight game with over 125 receiving yards. This matches the all-time NFL record, tying receivers Calvin Johnson (2012) and Pat Studstill (1966).
