You know as well as I do that the 2009 Super Bowl season would not have been possible without the services of Jabari Greer.

After spending the first several years of his career with the Buffalo Bills, Greer signed with the New Orleans Saints on March 4, 2009. His impact was felt immediately, providing the Saints a solid option as a cover corner. Greer would miss action after starting the first eight games for the Saints in 2009, but would come back in time for the regular season finale and playoff run.

Fun fact: Jabari Greer graded out positive in his Pro Football Focus grades in all of his seasons with the black and gold: 13.3 (2009), 2.0 (2010), 2.4 (2011), 0.5 (2012), and 0.6 (2013).

Greer always had a knack for making big plays when it counted, including this gem against the Atlanta Falcons in 2012, which oh by the way, spoiled their quest for a perfect season.
