#84-Brian Baschnagel

Tenure: 1977-1984 (wore #47 in 1976)

Drafted in the third round of the 1977 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, wide receiver Brian Baschnagel played eight seasons for the Bears in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Unfortunately, a knee injury sidelined him in 1985 and he spent that entire Super Bowl-winning season on injured reserve. He did, however, help the coaching staff from the booth the entire year and did receive a Super Bowl ring for his efforts in that regard.
