The greatest siblings in NFL history
The Bosas have become the latest standout sibling tandem, but there have been many throughout the NFL’s history. Here are the sibling duos and trios the Chargers’ and 49ers’ pass rushers will be measured against throughout their careers.
25. Dustin and Britton Colquitt
Between them, the Colquitts have 25 years’ experience, two Pro Bowls and a Super Bowl ring. The sons of former Steelers Super Bowl champion punter Craig Colquitt broke into the league when the Chiefs chose Dustin in the third round of the 2005 draft. One of only three punters to be taken in Round 3 this century, Dustin has kicked with his original team longer than any active punter. He and Britton faced off (sort of) 12 times from 2010-15, when the latter was Denver’s punter. Britton’s punting proved key in the 2015 playoffs, helping an offensively limited team to a Super Bowl title.
24. Raghib and Qadry Ismail
In college, each Ismail brother had a speed-based alias. Raghib’s “Rocket” moniker stuck after his electric Notre Dame career, while Qadry (Syracuse) became “The Missile.” Both debuted in 1993 and each posted two 1,000-yard seasons as NFLers.
