Former Arizona Cardinals tight end Ben Patrick, who caught a touchdown pass in Super Bowl XLIII against the Pittsburgh Steelers, now has an even better story to tell his grandchildren.

Patrick helped pull a group of people from a van that had flipped onto its side off I-17 in Arizona on Saturday, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
"I ran over and I looked in the front window and everybody was laying sideways and I debated on kicking the window in, but I didnít want to get glass over everyone," Patrick told KTVK-TV.
Patrick didn't play football in 2011, but the 27-year-old told KTVK that he hopes to sign with the Carolina Panthers this season.
