A member of the winning team, in both Super Bowl VII and VIII, he was the MVP of the first one, that undefeated season. Scott recorded two picks in that championship game, including a key one in the fourth quarter.Scott would join the Washington Redskins in 1976, where he played for three seasons before retiring. As a Dolphin, Scott would have 35 Interceptions. In 2010, Scott was named to the Dolphins' Honor Roll.
