Former NFL All-Pro Safety
Career Highlights: Rodney Harrison enjoyed an impressive 15-year NFL career in which he won two Super Bowl rings with the New England Patriots. A four-time All-Pro selection and three-time Pro Bowler, Harrison is the league’s all-time leader in sacks by a defensive back. One of only two players in NFL history to record at least 30 sacks and 30 interceptions (34) in a career, the hard-hitting safety had seven interceptions in 13 career NFL Playoff games. Drafted in 1994 by San Diego, he played for the Chargers for nine seasons and was the team’s Defensive Player of the Year four times. Harrison was named to the Associated Press All-Pro First Team in 1998, 2001 and 2003 and earned 2004 Second Team honors, and played in three Pro Bowls. Harrison spent six seasons (2003-08) with New England, in which he was voted as a defensive captain in each of his first four seasons. He set a career high with 140 tackles in 2003, and followed that with a 138-tackle performance in 2004. Off the field, Harrison’s Patriots’ teammates honored him with the 2006 Ed Block Courage Award.
