It was a tremendous NFL Preseason weekend for former Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns alum. We already highlighted Washington Commanders Percy Butler’s interception against the Cleveland Browns, but he certainly wasn’t the only one.

Lafayette native and Acadiana High graduate Bralen Trahan had an interception for the Chicago Bears, picking off fellow rookie Will Levis to seal the game Chicago.

In the same game, Trahan’s former teammate Eric Garror, signed by the Tennessee Titans as a non-drafted free agent, showed off his open-field tackling ability.

Garror was interviewed following Monday’s practice.

For the Dallas Cowboys former John Stephens, Jr has impressed in camp.


A collegiate receiver turned professional tight end, the 6-5, 221-pound Stephens Jr. finished his senior season with 14 receptions for 284 yards and a score, averaging over 20 yards per grab; he wasn't a centerpiece of the Ragin' Cajuns' offense but developed into an explosive, big-play threat.

Against the Jaguars, Stephens led the Cowboys with 5 catches for 56 yards and a score.

As for New England Patriots TE Johnny Lumpkin, he dressed and played nine snaps against the Houston Texans.  He had been wearing a red jersey for most of camp.
