1. Ty Law, CB, NY Jets

Ty Law played for the New England Patriots from 1995 to 2004. He won three Super Bowls with the Patriots and was selected to the Pro Bowl four times. He also led the league in interceptions with nine in 1998.

After 10 seasons with the Patriots, Law was released by the team for financial reasons. In 2005, he signed a three-year contract with the Jets. Law was a very productive player in 2005 and enjoyed one of his best seasons in the NFL.

Law had a career-high 10 interceptions and was also voted to his fifth Pro-Bowl. He proved his durability as well by starting all 16 games and recording 62 combined tackles.

Law was released by the Jets after the 2005 season because of salary cap restrictions. He then spent two years with the Kansas City Chiefs reuniting with his former coach with the Jets, Herman Edwards.

Law returned for a second, less productive stint with the Jets in 2008 and was slowed by injuries. He retired in 2009 and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2019.

Ty Law is regarded as one of the best defensive backs of all time and is mainly remembered for his time with the New England Patriots.
