With the New England Patriots and New York Giants set to play in Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, there's a very real possibility that 2009 7th round pick of the Jaguars, Tiquan Underwood, will finish this season as a Super Bowl champion. But he's not the only former member of the Jaguars set to play in two weeks.

Also on the Patriots roster with Underwood is their starting center, Dan Connolly. After signing with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2005, he made the roster and spent that season as a member of the Jaguars. But after an injury put him on injured reserve for the 2006 season he was waived before the 2007 season and joined the Patriots 12 days later.

On the Giants roster, there is safety Deon Grant who spent 2004-2006 in Jacksonville and punter Steve Weatherford who took over the punting duties for the Jaguars in 2009 after Adam Podlesh went on injured reserve. On the Giants injured reserve is former Jaguars defensive back, Michael Coe, who spent parts of the 2009 and 2010 seasons in Jacksonville.

Of course, the head coach of the Giants, Tom Coughlin, probably has the biggest connections to the franchise as the first head coach the team ever had. He held the position from the day the franchise began until after the 2002 season.
