With Anquan Boldin being traded to San Francisco, he’ll have the rare opportunity to win the Super Bowl in consecutive years with different teams. Here’s another bit of trivia: if Boldin makes it back to the Super Bowl, he’ll become just the 11th player to ever make Super Bowls with three different teams. (man, the Anquan Boldin tag at Football Perspective has gotten way more use than I ever expected).

Note: The above table excludes Matt Bahr and Brandon Stokley. Bar was the placekicker for the ’79 Steelers and ’90 Giants… and also the ’81 49ers to start the season. San Francisco traded him to Cleveland during the year, preventing him from making this list. Stokley earned rings with the Ravens and Colts, and started the 2011 season with the Giants. But once Victor Cruz emerged early in the season, Stokley was deemed expendable. On the other hand, I’m including Proehl on the list, because even though he was inactive for the Colts in Super Bowl XLI, he was still on the team. Ditto Rutledge, the only quarterback on the list. He actually took kneels for the Giants and Redskins in the Super Bowl, but never got into the game for the Rams.

    Prior to the SB era, I wonder if there were players with multiple (3+) teams participation for the NFL Championship. Maybe throw in the AFL championship, too. Off the top of my head, I can’t think of any. Most likely a short list given the lack of player movement for the time from team to team.
