Super Bowl LV has come and gone, and two former Auburn football players will now be able to add a ring to their jewelry collection. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers ran right over the Kansas City Chiefs, finally beating them 31-9.

Carlton Davis and Jamal Dean were impactful members of the Bucs’ defense. Davis recorded five tackles in the game, three of which were solo tackles. Dean made four tackles with one pass defended.

Davis and Dean pocketed their very first Super Bowl win, and Auburn football players of the past reached out to congratulate the former Tigers. Darius Slayton currently plays wide receiver for the New York Giants in his second NFL season and has 11 career touchdowns.

Anthony Schwartz, who recently declared he would skip his senior season on The Plains to enter the 2021 NFL Draft, chimed in on Slayton’s tweet as well. Like Slayton, Schwartz was also a wide receiver for the Tigers and had 117 career catches for 1,433 yards and six touchdowns at Auburn.

KJ Britt, another former Tiger planning to enter the 2021 NFL Draft, had congratulations to offer Davis and Dean, too. Britt most recently showed out in the Reese’s Senior Bowl and was voted top linebacker on the American team for his hard work throughout the week.

And finally, Daniel Thomas, former Auburn football DB, and current Jacksonville Jaguars safety, tweeted his agreement with Georgia player Tyson Campbell’s post:

Whether you were cheering for the Bucs or the Chiefs, we can all agree it’s a good day when former Auburn Tigers get to wear a Super Bowl ring. War Eagle to that!
