Mike Vrabel, 2001 | Patriots, LB
He flirted with the idea of retirement at the end of his four years in Pittsburgh, but signed instead with the New England Patriots in 2001. Vrabel is a perfect fit in Bill Belichick's system, registering 604 tackles, 48 sacks and 10 touchdown catches in his first 8 years with the franchise. The versatile four-year defensive captain earned both Pro Bowl and All-Pro nods in 2007 to go along with his three Super Bowl rings.
