Edsall says it's an 'honor' to play in Military Bowl

A.J. Francis and Joe Vellano once shared a defensive line in College Park, but now they've moved on. They're now both in the NFL, Vellano with the New England Patriots and Francis with the Miami Dolphins. 

The two squared off on Sunday in Miami, a 24-20 Dolphins victory. Though they may now be nemeses on the field, they still had enough time to snap a friendly photo:

That Maryland defensive line has found some success recently. Not only are Vellano and Francis playing on Sundays, but Maryland defensive line coach Greg Gattuso has accepted a job to become the head coach at Albany.

Not bad. Not bad at all.
