The New York Football Giants, once infamous for their corps of linebackers, still keep in touch with one that moved on to the AFC and won more Super Bowl rings once out of Big Blue — albeit as an assistant coach.
Johnson (New York Giants ’86-’92) was a part of both Super Bowls XXI and XXV under Hall of Fame head coach Bill Parcells and then-defensive coordinator Bill Belichick. He then followed Belichick to Cleveland for a few years and Detroit Lions for one before last playing for the New York Jets for two more years. As a player, he amassed impressive stats of: over 1200 tackles, 25.5 sacks, 14 interceptions, 12 forced fumbles, and two defensive touchdowns. He re-joined Bill Belichick in 2000 with the New England Patriots, winning three more rings as an assistant, inside linebackers coach, defensive line coach, and then linebackers coach. He is still there currently.
