Vaitai is the eighth different Horned Frog on a Super Bowl championship team in the last 12 years. He is one of 20 Horned Frogs to earn a Super Bowl championship ring.

A Haltom, Texas, native, Vaitai started the last 12 games and 13 overall while playing in all 19 contests this season. He has started 17 of the 24 games he’s played in his first two seasons in Philadelphia.
