Playing in the Super Bowl is the pinnacle for most NFL players. Only a few will ever get their hands on one of those coveted rings. However, not all Super Bowl rings are of equal value in terms of what a player contributed to his team’s ultimate win. So today, we’re going to take a look at some of the least-skilled Super Bowl winners of all-time.
Some of these players carved out careers as backups while others were simply in the right place at the right time. Check out the list below via the Sportster.
30. Jacoby Jones
Like Kenjon Barner, who also features on this list, Jones was an average wide receiver who had the advantage of being a decent kick returner. After washing out in Texas, he changed teams to the Baltimore Ravens. This was when Joe Flacco was their starting quarterback and they also had offensive talent like Torrey Smith. But despite finding himself on a Super Bowl-winning team, Jones never turned into an elite superstar.
The Ravens had a strong defense, which was the most important aspect of their road to victory. Yes, Jones provided a stunning highlight reel moment but the truth is that statistically, he ended up being one of the least-skilled wideouts to win the trophy. This is especially true when his overall career stats are taken into consideration. In the end, his career just fizzled out, a sad reflection of his potential.
