Defensive End – Rob Ninkovich
Surprisingly, Rob Ninkovich bounced around throughout his career before landing a spot on New England’s roster in 2009.
Ninkovich was a true menace rushing off the edge and causing havoc to opposing offenses. He impressively started every game for the Patriots during his final six seasons with the team.
Ninko would finish his Patriots career with 469 tackles (55 for a loss), 46 sacks, and five interceptions. Oftentimes Bill Belichick has referred to him as both a smart and a great football player. Before retiring in 2016, Ninkovich earned two Super Bowl rings.
