Ronnie Lott is the definition of sacrificing all you can for the team. Lott is the gold standard when you are considering best defensive backs to ever play. I was even considering listing him with the top 10 Cornerbacks because he was even playing at such a high level out of his natural position for those few short years. Ronnie Lott would intimidate, and along with his aggressive style of play is 63 interceptions over his career. Ronnie Lott is the best safety in NFL history, and the monumental moment that put’s Lott above the rest for me is when he had the top of his finger amputated so he could return to the game.
