Here at, we are proud to update Rebel fans on the exploits of our former players who lace up their cleats on Sundays in the NFL. Ole Miss has a big presence in the NFL again this year with 18 former Rebels currently on NFL rosters, including stars like two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning and other Super Bowl Rebels Michael Oher of the Carolina Panthers and Brandon Bolden of the New England Patriots.
