Brudzinski would make approximately 320 tackles from 1981 to 1984 for the Dolphins defense en route to two Super Bowl appearances.

Brudzinkski would miss the playoffs for the first time in his career in 1986, just one season prior to nearly guiding the Dolphins to a third Super Bowl in four years, and he would never make the postseason again.

From 1987 to 1989, Brudzinski would start in only eight of his 38 game appearances. Despite his fading latter years with the team, he completed nine seasons in Miami and compiled 14.5 sacks, approximately 500 tackles, and started in 94 of 125 games.

However, he never earned a spot at the Pro Bowl, but he does earn the status as sixth best linebacker in Dolphins history on this list.
