All-Time Super Bowl Team - Wide receivers

On Jan. 26, 2006, at 9 p.m. ET, ESPN will unveil The Ultimate Super Bowl 40-Man Roster in advance of Super Bowl XL. A distinguished panel of voters, all of whom have covered all 39 Super Bowls, will cast their ballots to determine the first 39 spots. What about the 40th? Well, that's where you come in.

The panel will select 18 players on offense (including starters and backups), 18 on defense (including starters and backups), a kicker, a punter and a kick returner for a total of 39 roster spots. The 40th spot will go to the player with the highest vote total from SportsNation who was not already picked by the panel.

Wide receivers get the spotlight in Week 11. From early heroes like Max McGee and Otis Taylor to recent studs such as Jerry Rice (right) and Michael Irvin we've got it all covered, including some impressive duos: Pittsburgh's Lynn Swann and John Stallworth played in four Super Bowls together, while Rice and John Taylor teamed up in two Super Bowls for the 49ers and Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt took the field together in a pair of Super Bowls with the Rams.

Review their credentials below and vote for your top five wide receivers in Super Bowl history.
