To all the Houston area pawn shops: 3 super bowl rings are headed your way. Courtesy of the mother fuckers who smashed our back door in— Mike Vrabel (@CoachVrabel50) November 8, 2014
Vrabel, now a linebackers coach for the Houston Texans, was a key member of the Pats' 2001, 2002, and 2004 Super Bowl wins. Though he was listed at linebacker, he was occasionally used on the offensive side of the ball. In Super Bowls XXXVIII and XXXIX, Vrabel caught touchdown passes from quarterback Tom Brady.
In 2007, Vrabel was selected to the Pro Bowl after recording a career-high 12.5 sacks and five forced fumbles. In 2009, he was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs. Vrabel retired from the league two years later to become a linebackers coach at Ohio State.
