Damon Huard – New England Patriots (2003)
One of the Huard quarterbacking brothers from the Pacific Northwest, Damon Huard was one of those career backups who people quickly forget the minute they leave the NFL.
And given the fact that he was the backup to Tom Brady for a couple of seasons, right as the New England Patriots’ dynasty began, he became even more forgettable, since Brady didn’t really miss any time under center prior to the 2008 season.
During the 2003 season, despite throwing a grand total of one passing attempt (which fell incomplete), Huard can still boast of winning a Super Bowl ring, as he was on the roster when his Patriots beat the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl.
Bethel Johnson – New England Patriots (2004)
Bethel Johnson is one of the many pieces of evidence in the only argument that people have against Bill Belichick’s abilities: he’s been awful at picking wide receivers in the NFL Draft. The speedy Bethel Johnson was a second-round pick in the 2003 NFL Draft, out of Texas A&M.
But Johnson never became anything more than a kick returner during his four years in New England, as he never caught a single regular season pass from Tom Brady at any point in his career. Despite that, Johnson was still fortunate enough to win a ring as a member of the Patriots’ in their Super Bowl win against the Philadelphia Eagles.
