FSU Alumni In The NFL For 2016: Week 1 Edition

Here is a look at when former FSU football stars will be taking the field during Week 1 of the 2016 NFL Regular Season.

The time is finally here, fans of football. The sport is now in our lives for the next five full calendar months, not coming to an end until the Super Bowl during the first Sunday in February. While this means that we get to watch FSU football for much of that time, it also means we get to watch former FSU stars on Sundays, Mondays and the occasional Thursday over the same time.

The NFL gets underway Thursday with the first of 256 regular season games (in a classic Super Bowl matchup that shouldn’t be played in the opener). During many of those games, at least one FSU alum will be taking the field, including the first one.

Here’s a look at which former FSU stars will be taking the field this week during the first week of the 2016 season, including when you can see each game.
