Tim Jennings would win a Super Bowl with the Indianapolis Colts (Super Bowl XLI) but it was his time later with the Chicago Bears where he would have the best run of his career. As a Bear, Jennings would lead the National Football League in Interceptions in 2012 and earn Second Team All Pro honors. He would go to the Pro Bowl that year and would return the next year.
Louis Vasquez split his seven years in the NFL with the San Diego Chargers and the Denver Broncos, the latter of which was where he saw the best time of his career. His first season in Denver would see the Offensive Lineman earn his only Pro Bowl and First Team All-Pro selections and he bookended that with a Super Bowl win in his final game. It may not be the most spectacular career but anything that ends with a Super Bowl ring sounds pretty good to us.
After a strong run at the University of Miami, Jon Beason was drafted 25th overall by the Carolina Panthers and was the runner-up for the Defensive Rookie of the Year. Beason would follow that up with three Pro Bowls, including earning a coveted First Team All-Pro Selection in 2008. “Big Beas” would play nine seasons in the National Football League.
Jerod Mayo busted out of the University of Tennessee to the New England Patriots as the tenth overall draft pick in 2008 and immediately turned heads with not only his gridiron play but also his impeccable work ethic. Mayo would win the Defensive Rookie of the Year and two years later the Linebacker would be named to his first of two Pro Bowls and was also a First Team All-Pro. While Mayo would help the Patriots reach Super Bowl XLVI (in a loss to the New York Giants) he would later win a ring three years later, though he was unable to compete in the game.
