When the Kansas City Chiefs selected former Virginia Tech safety Chamarri Conner in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft and 119th overall, the former Hokie knew he was joining a team that was coming off a Super Bowl championship and ready to try and build a dynasty.

It didn't take long for his teammates to make the case as in his first season in Kansas City, Conner played a part in the Chiefs claiming their second straight Super Bowl title with a 25-22 overtime win in Super Bowl LVII in February, becoming the ninth back-to-back champions.

Chamarri Conner receives Super Bowl ring Thursday night

Thursday night, Conner and the Chiefs collected their Super Bowl rings in a red-carpet event. What a ring it is.

The ring has 529 diamonds and 38 rubies and lists the postseason results and a commemorative patch dedicated to the late, Norma Hunt, the wife of Chiefs founder Lamar.

In his first pro season, Conner played in 17 games, recording 36 tackles, 31 solo, and an interception in a December game at home against Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen in a 20-17 loss. During the Kansas City playoff run that saw them beat the Miami Dolphins, Bills, Baltimore Ravens, and 49ers, he had 16 tackles, 11 solo with his biggest game being in Buffalo when he had 10 tackles, eight solo as the Chiefs stunned the Bills, 27-24. He had a pair of tackles against San Francisco in the Super Bowl.

Conner and the Chiefs will look to win a third straight championship this upcoming season and a three-peat is not out of the question with Patrick Mahomes leading the way offensively.
