Here's a look at every former Longhorns player in the 2024 NFL Playoffs.


Baltimore Ravens

Tarik Black, WR*

Tarik Black was signed to the Baltimore Ravens practice squad last month. He hasn't played any games for the Ravens this season.

Devin Duvernay, WR

The two-time Pro Bowler and 2021 First-Team All-Pro selection, Devin Duvernay, had another solid season as the Ravens' top returner. Duvernay is in his fourth year in the NFL.

The additions of veteran receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and rookie Zay Flowers have drastically cut into the number of targets Duvernay received on offense this season for the Ravens.

Justin Tucker, K

The best kicker in NFL history, Ravens' veteran Justin Tucker, was named to his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl this season. The seven-time Pro Bowler and five-time First-Team All-Pro is in his 12th year in the NFL, with every season coming with the Ravens.

Buffalo Bills

Poona Ford, DT

Veteran defensive tackle Poona Ford is in his sixth year in the NFL, and first with the Buffalo Bills. He played his first five seasons in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks. Ford played rotational snaps down the stretch this season for the Bills' interior defensive line.

Cleveland Browns

Marquise Goodwin, WR

In his first year with the Browns, veteran 11th-year wide receiver Marquise Goodwin was limited due to a knee injury. Per Scott Petrak of The Chronicle-Telegram, Goodwin is off the injury report and should be good to go for the Browns this weekend.

Houston Texans

Andrew Beck, TE/FB

Hybrid tight end/fullback Andrew Beck is in his first year with the Texans and his fifth year in the NFL. He played the first four years of his NFL career with the Denver Broncos.

Kris Boyd, CB

Fifth-year corner Kris Boyd has played a handful of games this season with the Arizona Cardinals and Texans after a four-year-run with the Minnesota Vikings. Boyd was signed to the active roster for the Texans in early December.

Hassan Ridgeway, DT*

Veteran eighth-year defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway played three games for the Texans this season before he was placed on injured reserve due to a season-ending Achilles injury.

Kansas City Chiefs

Charles Omenihu, DE

In the last two seasons, defensive end Charles Omenihu has emerged as a consistent pass-rushing presence. He registered 4.5 sacks and over 20 quarterback pressures with the San Francisco 49ers last season. This season with the Kansas City Chiefs, Omenihu ranks third on the team with a career-high seven sacks.

Omenihu is in his fifth year in the NFL and first with the Chiefs.

Miami Dolphins

DeShon Elliott, S

Fifth-year safety DeShon Elliott has started all 15 games he's played for the Miami Dolphins this season. He's registered a career-high seven pass breakups and one fumble recovery. Elliott is in his first year with the Dolphins.

Brandon Jones, S

The second of two former Texas safeties on the Dolphins is Brandon Jones. The fourth-year safety has made some big plays for the Dolphins this season, registering a career-high two interceptions, four pass breakups, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery over 16 games played. Jones has played all four of his seasons in the NFL with the Dolphins.

Connor Williams, OL

After nine starts for the Dolphins this season, sixth year interior offensive lineman Connor Williams was placed on injured reserve as he suffered a season-ending knee injury. Williams was in his second season with the Dolphins and sixth year in the league.


Dallas Cowboys

Malik Jefferson, LB

Sixth-year linebacker Malik Jefferson has floated between the active roster and the practice squad for the Dallas Cowboys this season. The career journeyman has played for five different teams and has floated around many other practice squads since he was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2018.

DeMarvion Overshown, LB*

Unfortunately for rookie linebacker DeMarvion Overshown, his first season ended before it could even begin. The Cowboys placed Overshown on injured reserve after he suffered a season-ending ACL tear in the preseason.

Philadelphia Eagles

Moro Ojomo, DT

Rookie defensive tackle Moro Ojomo made his first career tackle in the NFL for the Philadelphia Eagles in a 35-31 loss to the Cardinals on Dec. 31. Ojomo has climbed up the depth chart along the interior defensive line for the Eagles, playing 50 defensive snaps in the last two games of the regular season after he played just 18 in the team's other 15 contests.
