Former Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman Jared Veldheer had a chance to make NFL history in the playoffs. Veldheer was on the Indianapolis Colts practice squad and was elevated to the active roster to play in their postseason loss to the Buffalo Bills in the wild card round.

He was then signed by the Green Bay Packers and was set to become the first player in NFL history to play in the same postseason for two different teams.

However, he landed on the COVID-19 reserve and was unable to play. He is still on the list as the Packers play in the NFC Championship Game.

However, another former Cardinals player is in line to do what Veldheer was going to do.

Cornerback Tramon Williams, who played for the Cardinals in 2017, played for the Baltimore Ravens last week. After getting released following the Ravens’ loss, he signed with the Packers’ practice squad and was elevated to the active roster.

He is set to play on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and will have played for two different teams in the same postseason.

Williams is in his third stint with the Packers. He played for Green Bay from 2007-2014 and then again in 2018-2019.
