Shaquil Barrett Earns Second Super Bowl Ring in Super Bowl LV
Barrett’s first ring came in Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos.
TAMPA BAY, Fla. – For the second time in his career, former Colorado State linebacker Shaquil Barrett lifted the sport’s ultimate trophy as he helped lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a victory in Super Bowl LV on Sunday.
While teammate Tom Brady may get the headlines, Barrett and his defensive teammates headlined the night as they held Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, the NFL’s leading offense in the regular season, to just nine points and made Mahomes uncomfortable all night.
It was the first time in Mahomes’ NFL career to lose by double-digits, and the Buccaneers defense held the Chiefs without a touchdown. According to ESPN Stats and Info, Mahomes was pressured on 29 of 56 dropbacks, the most of any quarterback in Super Bowl history.
Barrett, who earned his first ring with the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50, becomes the first former Ram to win multiple Super Bowls. Jack Christiansen and Jim David both won three titles in the pre-Super Bowl era while Fum McGraw won a pair.
A Baltimore, Md., native, Barrett lettered at Colorado State from 2011-13 and finished his career with 246 tackles (116 solo) including 18 sacks and 32.5 tackles for loss. He added three interceptions, seven forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries, and six pass breakups. Barrett’s 18 sacks ranked seventh on the career charts when his playing career was concluded.
He capped his Colorado State career with Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2013 and helped lead an incredible comeback victory over Washington State in the 2013 New Mexico Bowl.
