He's also sacked guys by the name of Jamie Martin, Mike McMahon and Anthony Wright. He's even sacked a defensive back, Adam "Pac Man" Jones.

In 14 NFL seasons, Robert Mathis has sacked 61 different players.

Mathis' career will come to a close on Sunday afternoon, but his impact around the NFL has been felt everywhere, even in New England.

"He's an unbelievable talent," Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said of Mathis. "He's got incredible athleticism. He's so smart. He's got a lot of moves. What Robert's done with leading the league in sacks (in 2013) and (career) strip-sacks has really been huge. You try to put guys around him and double-team him, but he still seems to be making all the plays.

"He's one of the most disruptive players in the league," Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said when Mathis led the NFL in sacks in 2013.

"Not only does he hit the quarterback, but he causes the turnover, game-changing plays. He can absolutely ruin a game."
