Alabama Football’s 2022 Super Bowl Champions
Super Bowl LVI is nearly one year in the past. Super Bowl LVII now awaits the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles and features a host of names familiar to Crimson Tide faithful as they try to claim the greatest prize in all of football.
For the Eagles, a win would be the franchise's second Lombardi Trophy since the 2017-18 season. For the Chiefs, a Super Bowl win would be their second since 2019-20.
In 2022, the Los Angeles Rams won the big game over this season's AFC runner-up, the Cincinnati Bengals. The title was the Rams' first since the days of Greatest Show on Turf and second appearance since moving back to California after the 2015-16 campaign. Multiple former Alabama players got to share in that title.
Linebacker Terrell Lewis did not play in the Super Bowl due to injury. Lewis also missed title games at the college level while hurt. He was, however, on the active roster at the time of the game. Lewis parted ways with the Rams this past December and has since joined up with the Chicago Bears, who signed him from their practice squad this month.
Defensive end A'Shawn Robinson, a key contributor during Alabama's national championship season in 2015, joined the Rams in 2020 and was in his second season with them during the Super Bowl run. Robinson did play in the game against the Bengals and had a sack to go with six tackles. He has extensive playoff experience and was also on the Detroit Lions the last time the Motor City squad made the postseason.
Long snapper Carson Tinker is the longest-tenured pro player of the bunch and was a leader in Tuscaloosa's efforts to rebuild and recover from the 2011 tornado. He played on the Crimson Tide's 2011-12 national title team. Tinker joined the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2013, but was sidelined during Duval's 2018 AFC title game run with injury. He was on the Rams' practice squad for Super Bowl LVI, and had first signed with L.A. less than two months prior to the game. Tinker is now with Rams division rival Seattle.
