Joseph Robert "J. R." Redmond (born September 28, 1977) is a former American football running back in the National Football League (NFL). He played for the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders, and won Super Bowl XXXVI as a member of the Patriots over the St. Louis Rams.

College career

As a senior at Arizona State University he was a Heisman Trophy and Doak Walker award candidate, and was one of the premier kick returners in the country. He ranks third in ASU history with 3,299 career rushing yards. His total career yardage ranks 26th in Pac-10 history.[1]

  • 1997: 142 carries for 805 yards with 7 TD. 15 catches for 186 yards with 1 TD.
  • 1998: 166 carries for 833 yards with 11 TD. 22 catches for 194 yards.
  • 1999: 241 carries for 1174 yards with 12 TD. 15 catches for 100 yards with 1 TD.

Professional career

Redmond is best known for his role on the 2001 New England Patriots. Redmond caught three passes in the Patriots' game-winning overtime drive during the famous "Snow Bowl" playoff game against the Oakland Raiders. Most famously, in Super Bowl XXXVI, with the Patriots on their own 30-yard line with 41 seconds left, Redmond caught a 3-yard dump-down pass from quarterback Tom Brady, dodged a tackler to pass the first down marker and then dragged a second tackler to the sideline, extending the ball out of bounds to stop the clock. The stopped clock allowed the Patriots to keep the drive alive and led, plays later, to a Patriots victory on an Adam Vinatieri field goal. Charlie Weiss, the Patriots offensive coordinator at the time, has said that he would have recommended playing for overtime had Redmond not gotten the first down or failed to get out of bounds and stopped the clock.[2]


Redmond is a cousin to NFL running back Derrick Ward. Recently `Apr29, 2018 Redmond "needed help, and he found it in Larry Burns, an unlikely health care entrepreneur who has created a commercial niche out of football’s concussion crisis by providing medical treatment and legal aid to brain-injured former NFL players who believe the league has turned its back on them."
