(Sept. 7, 2017) -- Four former UTSA football players concluded the preseason on National Football League (NFL) rosters. David Morgan II (Minnesota Vikings), Brian Price (Dallas Cowboys), Jarveon Williams (Cincinnati Bengals) and Teddy Williams (Carolina Panthers) all will represent the Roadrunners in professional football this fall.

Morgan II, who was UTSA's first-ever player to be drafted to the NFL, enters his second season with the Vikings. The 6-foot-4, 265-pound tight ends contributed on offense and special teams during his first season. He saw action in 12 games and made one catch for four yards.

Price was a member of the Green Bay Packers last season but was picked up by the Cowboys at the end of the preseason. The 6-foot-1, 303-pound defensive tackle appeared in one game during the 2016 campaign.

Jarveon Williams made his NFL preseason debut this fall with the Bengals. He signed as a free agent in May. Williams carried the ball 41 times and rushed for 150 yards during four preseason contests. The 5-foot-9, 205-pound running back from Converse rushed for 117 yards on 27 carries against the Colts on Aug. 31. He also caught five passes for 42 yards in his final preseason game.

Teddy Williams is entering his seventh season in the NFL. The former Roadrunner track standout is in his third year with the Panthers. Last season, the 6-foot-1, 210-pound cornerback appeared in three games and logged six tackles, two pass deflections and one interception.
