Top 10 active players without a Super Bowl ring

For all NFL players, one particular item trumps whoever carries the largest contract, the more tricked-out Escalade, the most All-Pro nods: a Super Bowl ring. I could give you a hundred names of fantastic players who never earned the ultimate football prize and still wouldn't even be scratching the surface on this constantly expanding universe of the ringless. Dan Fouts, Dan Marino and Jim Hart? That's half a century of Super Bowl era quarterbacking ... and less rings than the one Frodo carried around.

Below, we rank the 10 best active players without a ring. A few who just missed the cut: Thomas Davis, DeAngelo Williams, Kyle Williams, Andrew Whitworth, Greg Olsen and Alex Smith.

One important note: We limited eligibility to players who have logged at least 10 NFL seasons. (Sorry, Antonio Brown and J.J. Watt.)
