LARAMIE -- Two more former Wyoming Cowboys are back in the NFL.

Last week, the Cleveland Browns signed unrestricted free agent running back Brian Hill. Wyoming's all-time leading rusher didn't play in Sunday's 45-7 loss to the Patriots.

Eddie Yarbrough wasn't unemployed for long.

A week after being cut by San Francisco, the Denver native was picked up this week by his former team, the Minnesota Vikings. Yarbrough, who played in Laramie from 2012-15, did not play in the Vikings 27-20 road win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Here's how the other former Pokes in the pros did last weekend:

Andrew Wingard -- Safety -- Jacksonville Jaguars

Former Wyoming safety Andrew Wingard tallied three tackles in a 23-17 loss at Indianapolis last Sunday. Wingard, who is in his third season with the Jags, now has 47 tackles, a sack, a pass deflection and an interception in 2021.

 

 

Marcus Epps -- Safety -- Philadelphia Eagles

Playing a just couple of hours down the road from where he played his college ball, Marcus Epps racked up a tackle and a pass breakup in a 30-13 blowout win over the Broncos. Epps, a three-year pro and former walk-on at Wyoming, now has 46 tackles and three pass breakups in 10 games.

 

 

 

Carl Granderson -- Defensive end -- New Orleans Saints

Limited throughout the week with a shoulder injury, former Cowboy Carl Granderson finished with two tackles in a 23-21 loss to Tennessee last weekend. The California product has 11 tackles in just six games. He also has a sack and a blocked kick to his credit.

 

 

 

Josh Allen -- Quarterback -- Buffalo Bills

A week after tossing a pair of interceptions in a 9-6 loss to the lowly Jaguars, Josh Allen bounced back in a big way Sunday in the Meadowlands, completing 21-of-28 passes for 366 yards and two scores in a 45-17 victory over the Jets. The former UW quarterback now has 2,602 passing yards to go along with 19 touchdowns.

University of Wyoming’s Top 50 Football Players

During the summer of 2021, 7220Sports.com counted down the Top 50 football players in University of Wyoming history, presented by Premier Bone & Joint Centers, Worthy of Wyoming.

The rules are simple: What was the player's impact while in Laramie? That means NFL stats, draft status or any other accolade earned outside of UW is irrelevant when it comes to this list.

This isn't a one-man job. This task called for a panel of experts. Joining 7220's Cody Tucker are Robert GagliardiJared NewlandRyan Thorburn, and Kevin McKinney.

We all compiled our own list of 50 and let computer averages do the work. Think BCS -- only we hope this catalog is fairer.
