Charles Haley is the answer to the envious trivia question as to which football player has the most Super Bowl Rings. Haley captured five Super Bowls in eight years with the 49ers and Cowboys, but he was not just a long for the ride as he was one of the key defenders on all of the championship teams.
During his tenure with San Francisco and Dallas, Haley cemented himself as one of the most feared pass rushers in the NFL. He was obsessed with winning and made sure that attitude was contagious in the locker room. Haley was relentless and worked the inside better than most ever had before.
The supporters for Charles Haley’s HOF candidacy have included the legendary Bill Walsh and John Madden. This kind of support may help sway people into changing their thinking from being the beneficiary of great squads, to a brilliant defender who helped to make defenses great.
