Although Darrius Heyward-Bay and Torrey Smith are both now NFL veterans, neither player has forgotten about their alma mater.
The two former Maryland wide receivers met up with one another on Wednesday and posed for a picture together.
Heyward-Bay shared the picture with his former teammate on Twitter:
