A decade before KCRA 3 sports director Del Rodgers joined the station, he frequently appeared on TV in a different capacity: He was a professional football player. He played for the Green Bay Packers from 1982 to 1985, then for the San Francisco 49ers in 1987 and 1988, mainly as a kickoff returner. He earned his Super Bowl ring when the 49ers triumphed over the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl XXIII.
