No. 2: Rodney Harrison

Rodney Harrison was a rookie when the Chargers made the Super Bowl in 1994 and he might have thought the team would get there multiple times during his career. They never got back and after nine seasons with the team, he was released.

He ended up in New England, playing for a Patriots team that seems to get there (or at least close) every year. And though it’s easy to dislike him because of where he went and how he got it done, Harrison won back-to-back titles with the Patriots.

Against the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl XXXVIII, Harrison had nine tackles (2 for loss), one sack and a pass deflection. He came up even bigger the following year against the Philadelphia Eagles, intercepting two passes while registering a sack and 12 tackles.

Harrison, known for his rough play and hard-hitting technique, is part of the 50th Anniversary teams of both the Chargers and the Patriots.

Though the Chargers were dominated in Super Bowl XXIX and no one else on that roster tasted a Super Bowl championship, Harrison got to experience the ultimate victory twice.
