They entered the NFL together in the 2006 draft class and quickly became starters for their respective teams as rookies.
Barry Cofield began laying the groundwork to establish himself as one of the NFL's top defensive tackles.
Kevin Boothe got cut by Oakland the following year.
As fate would have it, they would become teammates for four seasons with the New York Giants.
Cofield and Boothe will cross paths once again Sunday - albeit on different sides -- in the FOX America's Game of the Week between Washington and the host Giants.
Cofield left New York in the 2011 offseason for a six-year, $36 million contract to become Washington's starting nose tackle. At the time, Boothe was New York's top reserve interior offensive lineman. He was capable of playing center and both guard positions but unable to secure a first-string spot.

Giants rookie running back David Wilson believes that one day, he'll be in the Hall of Fame. He also likened himself to birth control in an interesting analogy.
It seems obvious enough. The New York Giants must beat the Washington Redskins this Sunday in order to secure their first win within the NFC East. The coaches know it, the players know it, and the fans know it as well. This Sunday is a huge game for Big Blue, and there's no reason to think the team will disappoint. After embarrassing the San Francisco 49ers on the road in Week...
Washington Redskin fans are still coming off the high of quarterback Robert Griffin III's 76 yard touchdown run that clinched the 38-26 victory against the visiting Minnesota Vikings. Of course as per usual when RG3 takes off and runs there are a litany of critics who hate it, no matter what the outcome is. I, however, am not one of those people. I don't cringe any less for...
The Washington City Paper has announced that they will only refer to the Washington Redskins as the Washington Pigskins.Controversy has always followed the Redskins because of their controversal name. Some people believe it’s racist, since it’s referring to native Americans ( I tend to agree). But after being taken to court numerous times by outsiders who don’t approve...
According to Art Stapleton of the Bergen Record, the Washington Redskins have listed wide receiver Pierre Garcon as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Giants.This is certainly not a surprise and there’s almost no way Garcon will play this week.
Washington receiver Pierre Garcon said it has been tough to run as fast due to his foot injury and is not sure when he'll return, according to John Keim of the Washington Examiner.Fantasy Spin:Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said the situation is "very much a mystery." Fantasy owners need to have a backup plan in place until Garcon can tolerate the pain enough to contribute...
The NFL has fined the Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills $20,000 each for violating league procedures on reporting injuries.
The injuries involved Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III and Bills defensive end Mario Williams.
Washington was fined for not properly updating media on Griffin's status during the Oct. 7 game against Atlanta after he left with a head injury...
The New York Giants secondary should know that Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan feels their pain.
Morgan can relate first-hand to the injuries that all four of New York's starters (cornerbacks Prince Amukamara and Corey Webster and safeties Antrel Rolle and Kenny Phillips) have battled through so far this season. Morgan told FOXSports.com that he himself is dealing...
