Tom Brady has made a habit of winning Super Bowl rings during his legendary NFL career. During his 22 seasons in the league, he has appeared in the Super Bowl 10 times and won a ring in seven of them, both of which are the most by any player ever.

Winning Super Bowl rings is one of the main goals of every NFL player. For many of them, winning championships is the biggest motivation to continue playing football.

Many players have realized that to have the best chance of winning rings, the smartest thing to do is join Tom Brady. Here are five superstars who have done exactly that in their pursuit of winning a Super Bowl.

Hall of Famer Randy Moss is one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history. He began his career with the Minnesota Vikings, where he exceeded 1,200 yards in six consecutive seasons while leading the NFL in touchdown receptions five times during his career.

He eventually decided to join Tom Brady and the Patriots in pursuit of a Super Bowl ring, creating one of the greatest teams in NFL history.

The Patriots went undefeated during the 2007 NFL season, but eventually fell short of a perfect season by losing in the Super Bowl to the New York Giants. While Moss is one of the most accomplished wide receivers ever, that loss was his best chance of winning the ring, which he was never able to achieve.
