LeGarrette Blount, Deion Sanders talk consecutive Super Bowls on different teams

AP

Deion Sanders was working Super Bowl Opening Night for NFL Network, and he approached Eagles running back LeGarrette Blount with an interesting point: Sanders is in an exclusive club that Blount (and Eagles defensive end Chris Long) can join on Sunday.

That club is the list of players who have won consecutive Super Bowls on different teams. So far in NFL history, that consists only of Sanders (who did it for the 49ers and Cowboys) and Ken Norton Jr. (who also did it for those two teams, though in reverse order, a year earlier than Sanders).

Three other players — Russ Hochstein of the 2002 Buccaneers and 2003 Patriots, Derrick Martin of the 2010 Packers and 2011 Giants, and Brandon Browner with the 2013 Seahawks and 2014 Patriots — have played on Super Bowl-winning teams in back-to-back years, although none of those three actually played in both Super Bowls.

Blount and Long were both on the field when the Patriots won the Super Bowl last year, so if the Eagles win on Sunday, they’ll be the third and fourth players to win back-to-back Super Bowls for different teams.

Sanders asked Blount about the prospects of joining that list.

“I’m trying to get back to back,” Blount said. “I was a part of the team that won last year. They’re back again and I’m back again. I want it as bad as they do.”

Blount is already in some very exclusive postseason company, and on Sunday he can join an even more exclusive list.

  1. A great player who always gets overlooked was former Packers and Dolphins TE Marv Fleming. He won three consecutive NFL Championships with the Packers (two of which were the first two Super Bowls), then played in three more Super Bowls with the Dolphins, winning two of those.
    When great TE’s are mentioned, Fleming is never brought up. But he was everything you could want in a TE — he could block like an “O” lineman and he was an excellent receiver as a TE. What hurts him is he played in era which was run oriented, especially with the Packers. he doesn’t have the stats that these modern TE’s do, but had he played in this era, he’d have been one of the best TE’s.
    Regardless, playing on 5 NFL champions and appearing in another championship game is remarkable and puts him in a special category.

  2. I like Blount, but I hope he gets benched for putting the rock on the ground just like last year.

    I like Long too. I hope he doesn’t get close to TB.

  3. It helps if you get to play for the Patriots at some point in your career. Your odds of pulling it off go up significantly.

  4. LB has been the consummate professional this season. The Eagles bring in Ajayi and cut his carries. 0 locker room problems. They look like theyre having a blast out there together.

    Im glad this didn’t cause a divide, and thank LB for a great season

  5. I suspect Deion’s motivation for bringing this tidbit up was to remind everyone that he did it – doubt he’s really interested that others may do it.

    I watched the interview and don’t recall Sander’s mentioning it. Perhaps I missed it. But that’s what this week is all about…bringing up SB records and accomplishments. He was much better than Irvin…hovering all over Ertz’ wife and butting in on Malcolm Jenkins. I think Irvin takes some sort of time released drug because he’s fine until all of sudden he’s not.

    Hopefully he’s the first to cough it up in consecutive big games for different teams.

    Hopefully you’re wrong and he applies Blount force trauma for 2 TDs.

    Say what you want, but anybody that plays a major role in a SB and a World Series can say what he wants.

  9. Deion was obviously a great player. However, I do get tired of him always trying to put the young upcoming stars “under his wing. It comes off to me as if hes trying to take credit for their success. I remember Devin Hester playing great when he was coming into the league and it always seemed like deion was always trying to act as if he coached him up. Deion was an FSU alum, while Hester came out of rival miami. Why wasn’t deion putting the Seminole players under his wing? Because they didn’t have the talent Hester did so he didn’t even pay any attention to them. Even the whole thing with deion calling out wentz because carson passed up an interview on the “if u ball u get the call” segment. He’s so full of himself.
