Clemson, SC-Clemson has 18 former players on NFL rosters entering

play on September 8th, the opening day of the NFL season. The list

includes four players who are now in double digits in the league in

terms of years of service. Woody Dantzler, who is on the Dallas

Cowboys practice squad, is the only member of the 2001 Clemson team

to make a roster.

The list of veterans includes Chris Gardocki, who is in his

12th year in the NFL as a punter. The former pro bowl punter is with

the Cleveland Browns. Gardocki holds the career punting average

record for both the Browns (44.1) and the Indianapolis Colts (44.8).

Chester McGlockton (Denver Broncos) and Levon Kirkland (Philadelphia

Eagles) are both in their 11th seasons in the NFL. Kirkland made

his 124th consecutive NFL start for the Eagles on Sunday against

Tennessee. James Trapp, who is in the Clemson Hall of Fame for his

track accomplishments from 1989-93, is in his 10th year in the NFL

and is with the Baltimore Ravens.

The Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos and

San Diego Chargers all have two players apiece from Clemson on their

respective roster. Twelve of the 18 players are defensive players,

including four defensive linemen.

Two former Tigers stood out on week one. Rod Gardner had

seven receptions for 131 yards and a score to help Washington to

victory in Steve Spurrier's first game as head coach. Adrian Dingle

had two sacks to help the San Diego Chargers to a victory over

Cincinnati.
