Sorry to hear about this. Davis won four Super Bowl rings during the 1970's.

Here is a (I believe) complete list of the players who won four Super Bowl rings with the Steelers during the 70's:

Offense: Terry Bradshaw, Franco Harris, Rocky Bleier, Lynn Swann, John Stallworth, Randy Grossman, Larry Brown, Mike Webster, Sam Davis, Gerry Mullins, Jon Kolb

Defense: Joe Greene, LC Greenwood, Dwight White, Steve Furness, Jack Ham, Jack Lambert, Loren Toews, Mel Blount, Donnie Shell, Mike Wagner JT Thomas

The ironic thing about these 22 players is, by position, they form a complete offense and defense.

Doesn't he share an NFL record for fumble recoveries in a game or season?
