Herb Adderley

Herbert Allen Adderley (born June 8, 1939 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is a former American football cornerback who played for the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League.
He played college football at Michigan State University and was an All-Big Ten offensive star.He is the only player to appear in four of the first six Super Bowls.

Adderley started for the Packers from 1961–69, then played three seasons (1970–72) with the Dallas Cowboys. While with the Packers, he won rings in Super Bowl I and Super Bowl II. Adderley was a major factor in the Packers' Super Bowl II win over the Oakland Raiders, intercepting a pass by Raiders quarterback Daryle Lamonica in the fourth quarter and returning it 60 yards for a touchdown to put the game away. This was the first Super Bowl touchdown on an intercepted pass. After joining the Cowboys, Adderley became a vital cog in Dallas' "Doomsday Defense," assisting the Cowboys to a Super Bowl appearance in Super Bowl V and a championship win in Super Bowl VI. Adderley was traded to the Los Angeles Rams in the summer of 1973 but instead of reporting to the team, he retired on August 7.

In his 12 NFL seasons, Adderley recorded 48 interceptions, which he returned for 1,046 yards and seven touchdowns, an average of 21.8 yards per return. He also recovered 14 fumbles (returning them for 65 yards) and returned 120 kickoffs for 3,080 yards and two scores.
