The Bills new Defensive End has more than a Super Bowl ring on his finger to remember his appearance in the big game.
Jarius Wynn has a son who was born hours before Super Bowl XLV.
When he was a member of the Green Bay Packers, Wynn and his wife were having dinner in Dallas the night before the big game.
“That night, her water broke at a restaurant,” Wynn said Tuesday in an appearance on The John Murphy Show. “I was like, are you OK? She wouldn’t tell me. And then we had to rush her to the hospital.”
Martavia Wynn game birth to a seven pound, four ounce baby boy early on the morning on February 6th, 2011 in Dallas. Jarius says he barely had time to kiss his son before he had to rejoin the Packers at their game-day hotel.
“As soon as I left the hotel I went to meetings, everybody congratulated me,” Wynn said. “They were saying it was a sign that we were going to win the game.”
His teammates were right. The Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 in that game. Operating on about 90-minutes of sleep, Wynn played on special teams and got in for three defensive snaps in Super Bowl XLV.
Wynn said Packer fans wanted him to make his baby boy’s middle name “Super,” or “Super Bowl.”
“That’s what people in Green Bay wanted me to call him, but it’s just Jarius Wynn, Jr.”
