268. Tim McDonald
Tim McDonald split his career with the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers, where the Safety went to three Pro Bowls and two Second Team All-Pros with each team.  McDonald would have four seasons where he went over 100 Tackles and would have 1,138 in total along with 40 Interceptions over his career.  He was a member of San Francisco's Super Bowl XXIX championship team and would have had a higher profile had he not been a Cardinal in the first half of his season and overshadowed by other 49ers defensive players in the second half of his career.
