Published

Pittsburgh Steelers legends Franco Harris and Lynn Swann both celebrate their birthday on Monday, March 7. This year, Harris turns 72, while the slightly younger Swann reaches 70.

Both selected in the first round, Harris and Swann were key contributors to one of the most historic dynasties in NFL history.

The duo won four Super Bowls together from 1975 to 1980, with each earning an MVP nod for their respective performances during the big game.

A nine-time Pro Bowler, Harris rushed for 12,120 yards and scored 100 total touchdowns over his 13-year career.

Recognized as one of the most acrobatic catchers of the football ever, Swann tallied 336 receptions for 5,462 yards and 51 touchdowns over nine seasons.

Harris was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1990, while Swann was enshrined eleven years later in 2001.
